Labour offers a full deal for Mitcham’s Corner`

For too long Mitcham’s Corner has been in decline. Currently it is dominated by the gyratory traffic system and with emptymitchamscorner_shop_2.jpg shops.

Only Labour is offering a full package to turn this around.

  • The Cambridge City Deal longer term offers solutions for the area by removing the gyratory system which is spoiling the area
  • Cambridge Local Plan — Mitcham's Corner declared an Opportunity Area which should attract better developments and funding
  • Cambridge City Council employed a Chesterton Coordinator similar to the Mill Road Coordinator who has helped turn that area into a dynamic community area
  • Helping Friends of Mitcham’s Corner secure funding

Mike Sargeant  says, “Labour’s Chesterton Coordinator is a crucial focus for developing the area, and the key step will be to reduce the impact of the road system.

Mitcham's Corner  should be an area we can enjoy — our local centre to shop, eat and relax.

The Local Plan has the vision to take the area forward:

‘a more comfortable and simplified pedestrian environment by providing wider pavements and more street trees, removing pedestrian guardrails and unnecessary signage, and introducing more direct crossings that respond to key desire lines’

and ‘low-speed environment to help restore the balance between people and vehicles. Reducing the physical and visual width of the carriageway, in addition to reducing or removing road markings, will help change the perception of the street and contribute to lower speeds’”

Let’s put community back into West Chesterton!"

you have said nothing about new housing in the context of Mitcham,s Corner redevelopment. Any housing for sale should be offered in the first place to people who work in cambridge. Uncontrolled house sales at present result in foreigners and buytolet operators investing in anything close to the city whilst working people are pushed out to King’s Lynn, March, Peterborough, Ely, Downham Market etc. I also suspect that a lot of money is being laundered this way by corrupt foreigners all over Britain. Please let me know what you are proposing to halt this unacceptle form of free enterprise. i know of one new party who will promise to work for British working people.
