Last night (2017-02-08) Councillors and resident association representatives voted unanimously on a number of recommendations to the City Deal. Of particular local interest was to demand the the City Deal develop the "Do-Optimum" proposals put forward by local residents' associations and Cambridge Cycle Campaign.
These proposal involve saving the much treasured trees and avoids the 4 bus lane "superhighway" that the Labour and Conservative controlled City Deal has been proposing for much of last year. This is good news to those who care about this much-loved approach to Cambridge. Local Liberal Democrats, however, remain concerned.
Cllr Ian Manning commented "Don't be fooled - this shouldn't and wasn't necessary.
Liberal Democrat Councillors, myself included, have been arguing all last year the City Deal proposals were non-starters. Labour Councillors repeatedly turned down opportunities to put a stop to them, forcing residents to endure months of effort intended to get them to accept to what, frankly were all along, a ludicrous series of proposals."
