Histon & Impington Neighbourhood Plan - Submission consultation

Representation ID: 168099

Received: 29/07/2019

Respondent: South Cambridgeshire District Council

Representation Summary:

Policy HIM15 Walking and Cycling Routes

a)Whilst policy is entitled walking and cycling routes it would appear from table 7 and Maps 20 & 21 that these concentrate on existing walking routes and bridleways for horse riders or are some cycle paths? Need local knowledge to understand linkages. Safer cycling links was top answer in parish's Big Community Survey - not clear how this Plan makes a difference.

b)Draft Village Design Guide SPD highlighted importance of connecting the villages with countryside - policy could mention this

c)Map showing desire lines might assist. Maps at different scales (within and outside villages) showing existing cycle and footpath routes with annotations explaining key centres where people want to go may assist this process. Would help show where linkages could be made.
