You may have seen that work on Coleridge Rec has been progressing at full steam!

Both tennis courts are now complete, and work on the play area is expected to be completed before summer.

A planning application has also been put in for a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA).

Lewis Herbert, leader of Cambridge City Council, says:

"The Multi-Use Games Area will be a great recreational facility for local teenagers.

The improvements at the Rec are adding valuable extra facilities for many different age groups, while retaining the essential character of the park that people in Coleridge value so much."

Councillors will monitor the implementation of the MUGA with council recreation staff to ensure it works well.

If you have comments or suggestions on the improvements to the Rec, contact Lewis directly at Lewis.Herbert at cambridge.gov.uk

As residents will have noticed, work is now underway.

Final planning permission has just been approved for amendments and a significant sized convenience store is planned for the ground floor.  More details on the planned retailer will be shared when known.

The scheme will take a year to build, with local residents again able to get newspapers, milk and much more from March 2016 provided the build completes to plan, and badly needed extra homes are added.

Making Coleridge Rec even better!

IMG_0830.JPG

The Rec is at the heart of Coleridge ward and the current works will complete long-overdue improvements:

  • Adding a new tennis court and upgrading the existing court
  • Installing a new games area for teenagers
  • Completing a major upgrade of the play area, in addition to the popular new splash pad

Coleridge councillors are determined to retain the core character of the Rec. This includes working with the Friends of the Rec group to retain and replace damged and diseased trees thoughtfully.

"We hope everyone will enjoy the improvements in the coming summer!" said Cllr Jeremy Benstead.

Improved Radegund Road Roundabout will make travel safer for Coleridge Residents

The new “Dutch style” roundabout at the Radegund Road and Perne Road junction has now been opened.

A majority of residents responded to the consultation stating clearly they wanted the improvements to the roundabout to go ahead. There have been 16 reported accidents at this spot over the last five years and it is a major route to school for students.

The improvements to this busy roundabout will make it safer for all road users: pedestrians, cyclists and motorists and particularly the many schoolchildren who make their way to and from the local secondary and primary schools in the area:  including Coleridge Community College, St Bede’s and Ridgefield Primary school.  When the shops at the roundabout are also redeveloped soon there will be a massive improvement to the local environment.

Have your say on the County Council's budget

Residents across Cambridgeshire are being asked for their input in the setting of the County Council’s budget for 2015/16.

Have your say at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/budgetconsultation

Due to increased demand and inflation coupled with cuts in funding from Central Government, the Council's current business plan sets out the need to save £149.1 million over the next five years, with £30.7 million to save next year. This inevitably means the Council (along with all local authorities) will need to make more service cuts. This year the budget has to be balanced with 7.1% less money from Government and increased pressures on services from inflation and rising population.

The County Council services are very wide-ranging and touch everyone’s lives - from looking after young people and adults during vulnerable periods in their lives to maintaining the County’s roads and recycling rubbish. But with less money from Central Government and increasing demographic and inflation pressures we have to find millions of pounds in savings while continuing to deliver front line services.

Door-to-door surveying will also take place. The survey looks at specific issues surrounding  savings whilst also seeking public opinion around Council Tax levels.

Comments about the Council’s priorities or ideas for delivering services better or more efficiently can also be sent to:

Why Budgens shoppers have reason to smile...

Shoppers and residents using Budgens car park on the corner of Perne Road and Cherry Hinton Road will be pleased to know that resurfacing work commenced on 31st August, and the majority of the work is now complete.

County Councillor for Coleridge Ward, Noel Kavanagh, says "There have been complaints about the abysmal condition of the surface of the car park for a number of years now. Shoppers, particularly the elderly, and residents in the flats above the retail premises, have run the risk of injury through tripping over ruts and potholes in the parking area in front of Budgens. Repairs to the car park have not been carried out because it was believed the area was privately owned.  Coleridge Ward councillors have complained for years about the hazards residents  and shoppers faced using the car park.  Finally, County Council research into old records revealed that the space in front of the shops is indeed public highway and the responsibility of the County Council. I, fellow Councillors and Coleridge Ward residents are very pleased the County Council has been able to secure the funds to finally undertake this much needed re-surfacing of the car park".
