My response to Cambridge City Council’s call for project ideas for the use of developer contributions collected by the city council – see www.cambridge.gov.uk/s106

Dear Tim,

I am writing to add my support to a couple of ideas I think may already be on the table.

1) I think Mill Road would benefit from more public benches.

2) I wholeheartedly support any motion to reduce the number of vehicles using Mill Road. In my view traffic is the single largest nuisance issue the community has to deal with on a daily basis. Public space should be available for the enjoyment of all. Motor vehicles are not conducive to this. This isn’t a problem specific to Mill Road of course, it’s something we need to address as a society, but I believe Mill Road can lead the way in showing how much a community can benefit by reducing motor traffic.  Pedestrianising Mill Road one day a week would be a start. I also support the idea to reduce the speed limit or introduce traffic calming measures.

Yours sincerely,

Hugh Chapman

    Dear Tim,
    Imaginative ways, unrestricted by expense, to improve the attractiveness and reduce the drabness of the area. Make the area so much more attractive to visitors to the city, they include it on their ‘sights to see’ list and follow top grade, easy to follow, signage direct to Mill Road.
