Potton Green Wheel Consultation – Reminder

Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) is inviting the local community to have their say on a proposed ‘green corridor’ around Potton.

CBC has worked alongside Potton Town Council, Sutton Parish Council and Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity (BedsRCC) to create plans for a ‘Green Wheel’ which will circuit the town, providing a green corridor for Potton residents to enjoy.

The draft plans show that the Green Wheel could provide an important landscape and biodiversity resource for the town to enjoy and encourage walking and cycling both around and in and out of the town.  The idea is to use and enhance existing public paths and create new additional routes to form a more formal continuous circular network of paths around the community of Potton.

CBC would now like to hear the community’s views on the proposals.

The public consultation will run from Monday 24 May to Monday 5 July 2021.

Full details about the proposals and a questionnaire for residents and stakeholders can be viewed on CBC’s website.

The consultation questionnaire and summary Green Wheel document are also available during the consultation at the Potton Town Council Office and Potton Library.

Representatives from the Town Council, BedsRCC and the Potton Green Wheel Development Group will be available to explain more about the proposal and hear your views on:

• Saturday 19 June at Potton Seasonal Market, Market Square from 9:00am – 1:00pm
• Tuesday 22 June at Potton Community Centre, Brook End from 10:00am – 2:00pm
• Thursday 24 June at the Pavilion, Mill Lane from 4:00pm – 8:00pm
