There are several public consultations going on in Cambridgeshire that directly or indirectly affect the Barton community. As your Parish Council, we have a voice (and often a vote) at many formal meetings. It is therefore important that we hear views from our community.

Greater Cambridge Local Plan

Barton Greenway

The Barton Greenway is a proposed route to enable pedestrians, cyclists, and equestrians to travel sustainably from Barton into Cambridge.

Public consultation on this route took place in Summer 2018. The results of the consultation are available (see attachments below). A decision on how to progress this scheme will take place in 2020.
