St Ives - Have Your Say - about the needs for a new road network

St Ives - Have Your Say - about the needs for a new road network

I'd like to tell you about our plans to ask the people of St Ives what they'd like to see improved in the road network around their town. As you know, how best to sort out the congestion has been a hot topic for a long time, but now the discussion can really begin in earnest.

Next week the Combined Authority will invite everyone who has an opinion on how and where the roads can be improved to share that view with us. More »

With Covid safety in mind, we're not asking people to gather in person. Instead, we've set up a microsite, Your St Ives, Your Say, which maps out the options so visitors can compare the benefits and choose the solution they prefer. It isn't the formal statutory public consultation demanded by law – that comes much later when a decision on the project has already been made – but a way of canvassing early views about what people want.

Our purpose is to give individuals and organisations a direct way of telling the project team what they think, of shaping the road improvement scheme from its earliest stage. No decision has yet been made, so the more people who show a preference, and their reasoning for it, the better informed the Combined Authority and its partners will be in deciding the way forward.

A good project will be collaborative and involve everybody's cooperation. It's a no-brainer that insights from your communities will be essential in guiding our team to the best possible solution for the greatest number of people, so we're asking residents, road users, local employers, and visitors to share their views, comments, criticisms, and preferences in the survey.

I want the development of this road network to be thoughtful and responsible, mindful of flooding and water management, people's safety, and the needs of residents and every kind of road user – and that means not solely drivers, but walkers, cyclists, bus passengers, and, yes, riders, whether they're on horses, or scooters.

These roads are for everyone and everyone should have a say.

To help keep the community in touch with the St Ives improvement scheme as it evolves, we'll report on our Market Town Community Facebook hub @cpcamarkettowns where people with shared interest in this vital project can be right at the heart of developments, and first in line for any news.

So, I'm writing to you now, not only to tell you personally about the microsite – which launched on Monday 14th June - and the Facebook forum, but to enlist your help in gathering opinions from as many people in the community as possible. I hope that you will use your influence, your social media, and your networks to spread the word about Your St Ives, Your Say and help encourage people from every bit of the community to visit the site and make their comments.

Yours Sincerely,

Dr Nik Johnson

Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough » Less
