One of the many Potton Neighbourhood Plan projects was to create the Potton Green Wheel, a circular walking/cycling ‘Green Wheel’ route around Potton, with various ‘spokes’ from the town centre. For a number of years the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, together with a number of Potton residents, have been working with the Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity (BedsRCC) and Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) to make this project a reality, and the Potton Green Wheel Masterplan was adopted by CBC and both Potton Town Council and Sutton Parish Council.
The route was officially opened on Sunday 17th September 2023 at The Hollow, Biggleswade Road, Potton SG19 2LX.
You can download the leaflet here and map here, and paper copies are available from the town council office, Post Office, Cameron’s, Tysoe’s, Potton Vets and the Library.
Now the real work begins, seeking to iron out the various snags along the preferred route. The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group will now be working to produce signposts and waymarker signs and information boards en-route. If you are interested in joining this working group, please contact the Town Clerk by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional support and ideas are always welcome.
