Consultation events will be held on a project to improve pathway links around Wisbech.

Cambridgeshire ACRE has launched the Wisbech Missing Links project to improve access from the surrounding villages into Wisbech.

Events will be held in the town during the next month to find out what people think.

Chief Executive Kirsten Bennett said: “In December the project team launched a survey and have received a very positive response from the public and local groups so far. However, it is important we have heard from as many people as possible.”

The scheme is led by local community development experts, Cambridgeshire ACRE, and environmental consultant, PJ.elements.

Individuals and community groups are urged to get involved in helping to improve the existing rights of way network around Wisbech to make it more accessible and ‘user-friendly’ for people to use.

Sessions will be held, from 10am to 2pm, on: Thursday, January 7, at the Oasis Centre, in St Michael’s Avenue, and Monday, January 11, at the Rosmini Centre, 69 Queens Road, Wisbech.

Town Mayor David Hodgson is supporting the project

He said: “I am extremely pleased this consultation is taking place. Making the Rights of Way network accessible in the town and routes to the surrounding villages is vital. We need to ensure it’s as easy as possible for residents to get around, for work, school or leisure walks. I urge everyone to get involved and either complete the survey on-line or come along on one of the planned drop-in events.”

The project is funded by Cambridgeshire County Council and is undertaken with the support of the Cambridgeshire Local Access Forum (CLAF).
