Planning matters

This article was published in 2000, in Newsletter 28.

The University of Cambridge has applied for planning permission for a Park and Cycle facility at its West Cambridge site off Madingley Road. There will be space for 291 cars and 440 bikes (including 12 secure covered cycle locker shelters). The idea is that University staff will leave bikes securely at the site overnight, drive in each day, and cycle to their place of work in the city centre.

Sustrans has now submitted its planning application for the Marshall’s Millennium Cycle Route to link the Newmarket Road Park and Ride site to the riverside route into the city at Stourbridge Common, as mentioned in Newsletter 25.

The Marshall Millennium Cycleway would cross Ditton Meadows and then pass under the railway bridge
