Central Bedfordshire Council is asking the local community to have their say on proposals for a ‘green corridor’ around Biggleswade.
The Council, Biggleswade Town Council and Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity (BRCC) have worked together to create plans for a ‘Green Wheel’ which will circuit the town, providing a green corridor for Biggleswade 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 council would now like to hear the community’s views on the proposals.
The public consultation will run between Friday, 16 November and Friday, 28 December. There will be a display at Biggleswade Library from Tuesday, 27 November to Saturday, 1 December and representatives from the council and BRCC will be available to talk to on Friday, 30 November between 10.00am and 2.00pm.
There will also be a display at Saxon Pool and Leisure Centre in Biggleswade from Monday, 3 December to Sunday, 14 December. Representatives from the council and BRCC will be on hand there on Wednesday, 12 December from 12.30pm to 4.30pm.
Full details about the proposals and a questionnaire for residents and stakeholders can be viewed online at www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/consultations from 16 November.
Paper copies will be available to view at the leisure centre and library during the display periods.
