On 17th July, 6pm at Chesterton Community College, a Stakeholder Meeting will enable further discussions before the City Deal Assembly and Board consider Milton Road on 19th and 26th respectively. You have the opportunity to put across your views at all these meetings. We are identifying aspects requiring more work, so that the LLF report to the City Deal Assembly and Board will make residents' voices heard - loudly and clearly, without equivocation.

Cllr Jocelynne Scutt says “We are working with residents to ensure a good outcome for local people—as a residential road where pollution and congestion is minimised. As LLF Chair, I have ensured that Residents’ Associations and CamCycle have had the maximum opportunities to work with City Deal Officers to promote ‘Do Optimum’ and appreciate the effort which benefits us all.”
