Milton Road residents and residents of neighbouring streets working with Milton Road Local Liaison Forum (LLF) in a year of meetings, workshops, discussions, e-mail exchanges, and on site visits has ensured:
- 'Do Optimum' from Residents’ Associations and Camcycle has been the basis of further progress on Milton Road City Deal Scheme
- Union Lane - will remain open
- Highworth Avenue roundabout - saved
- No banning of right hand turns
- No double bus lanes
- Avenue of trees & grass verges throughout
- Generally, cyclists & pedestrians protected from traffic by trees and verges, with two-way cycling for children’s safety – on ‘generally’, we emphasise discussions with City Deal officers and LLF representatives are ongoing
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.”

Councillor Jocelynne Scutt, Labour's County Councillor for West Chesterton and Chair of the City Deal's Milton Road Local Liaison Forum, has said that residents can take heart from the positive response of the City Deal's Board to recent resolutions put to them by Councillor Scutt.
In a letter sent (click here) to Councillor Scutt on on 14 September, the Board's Chair and Leader of the City Council, Councillor Lewis Herbert, confirmed that independent landscaping, tree and public realm consultants would be appointed by the City Deal to look at the plans for Milton Road and would attend a series of workshops over the next few weeks arranged by Councillor Scutt to be held with residents and council officers.
Councillor Scutt said: "This is an important step forward in achieving a high quality scheme for Milton Road that puts public realm and landscaping right at its heart. I was also very pleased that Councillor Herbert confirmed that the Board will be looking for a design that avoids the needs for double bus lanes on any part of Milton Road. Our Local Liaison Forum meetings have been very well attended and it's a testament to the strength of the community across and around Milton Road that we now have these significant commitments."
Councillor Scutt added: "Residents can take heart from what we have already achieved. Looking forward both the Forum and the workshops will be vital in shaping the preferred design of the Milton Road scheme, including an avenue of mature trees and improving tree provision in some parts where it is currently low."
