Histon & Impington Neighbourhood Plan - Submission consultation

Representation ID: 168203

Received: 31/07/2019

Respondent: Katie Ackermann

Representation Summary:

Guided Busway is continually referred to and cycleway/pedestrians. This is a bridleway and therefore accessible to horse riders.

Frequently ride through Histon - no mention of horse riders in report - many of cyclists and pedestrians.

Horse riders are vulnerable road users, and would prefer to avoid traveling on roads - only made possible with access to safe and suitable off road tracks (NMU paths ). Horse riders forgotten in village planning - most vulnerable. Horse riders have access to roads, byways and bridleways - horse riders allowed access to cyclists on bridleways and there has been no report of injury to a third party by a horse.

Many bridleways/byways split by ever-growing road structure - no choice but to travel on busy roads. Number of deaths shows important to provide safe routes for equestrians.

Please do reconsider the wording used throughout this report to consider bridleways and equestrians.
