Noah Tate has lived in Cambridge for 9 years and bought a flat in Coleridge a few months ago. They are greatly enjoying getting to know the area’s wealth of independent shops and restaurants and more tucked away green spaces.

They have very recently moved to Coleridge from their previous home in East Chesterton. Very local concerns are different, and they hope longer-standing residents in Coleridge will share their concerns and priorities.

Chisholm Trail

The Chisholm Trail will change cycling and pedestrian routes and movement patterns in Coleridge. The impact of Carillion’s collapse on the contracted construction should be made public.

Residents parking scheme

A resident’s permit only scheme is likely to be implemented. It is not clear to what extent the residents affected are aware that this change is imminent and that their views have been heard.

Air pollution

Noah has a long-standing commitment to the environment, for example having given up air travel completely several years ago. Combined with their professional experience in medical publishing, they look forward to helping tackle the health and environmental consequences of air pollution across the city.
