Our message to the City Deal

31 Jan update : Here's our latest email newsletter with an update from Ysanne, Damien and Nichola. We hope it will help you decide how to respond to the consultation. 

Drop-in and see us

We've held several information/discussion sessions at Stir Cambridge and, as they've been so popular, we've fixed some more dates. Do come and join us:

Weds 3rd Feb 4-5.30pm                  

Tues 9th Feb 3-4.30pm

The Lib Dem approach

We believe that action speaks louder than words.  We're determined to protect and enhance Milton Road's green environment and community character, and we are taking practical steps to achieve this:

  • We've won support at the City Deal Board for our idea of an Environmental Design Guide. This would look for examples of best practice from around the world and set firm standards for the City Deal's transport infrastructure schemes. We believe that this document will guarantee that a brutal engineering scheme, like that currently proposed for Milton Road, can never happen in Cambridge.
  • We've persuaded the City Deal to give a presentation about creating green, community-friendly streets at the North Area Committee meeting on 4th February. The City Deal Assembly and Board have seen this presentation, but local residents have not. We want it to be available to everyone because it may help residents come forward with credible alternatives to the City Deal's proposals.
