Message from Julian Huppert:

“As your MP I want to hear what’s important to you and answer any questions you may have for me. Since my election in 2010,
I’ve worked for Cambridge in parliament on a wide range of issues, from increased funding for cycling to protecting
and promoting independent pubs, shops and businesses
to campaigning for more equitable funding for our schools.
It would be interesting to hear your thoughts on these and any other issues. I hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you there!”

A vision for Riverside

As far back as 2009 the City Council stated a vision ”to create a pedestrian and cycle priority route linking the two green spaces of Stourbridge Common and Midsummer Common“. This scheme, which would create an uninterrupted route along the river from the city centre to Fen Ditton, was noted as having “city-wide benefit”.
The first stretch from Midsummer Common to Saxon Road is in place, and makes a stark contrast with the scruffy, poorly-maintained and inadequately paved conditions further east. RARA is pressing the Council to turn its wish into reality. We have suggested completion of Riverside improvements as a possible priority for S106 (developer payment) funds. This is now on the list of projects up for decision at the East Area Committee.

What: East Area Committee
When: 29th November at 7pm
Where: Cherry Trees Day Centre, St Matthews Street
Why: Discussion on whether funding should be allocated to Riverside to improve it
Who: Cambridge City Council
Cost: Free
What to do next: Turn up to the meeting – any resident can attend
