Public Meeting Romsey Mill Fri 29th March 2019, 7.30pm
Mill Rd bridge will close to motor traffic in July and August 2019. So we expect the traffic on Mill Rd to be substantially lower. How can we make the most of it?
With the date for the planned closure of Mill Road bridge approaching fast, we want to encourage the Mill Road community to come together to prepare for a summer with a difference.
With the road closed to through traffic meaning much lower traffic volumes, we think we can recapture some of the spirit of the Mill Road Winter Fair, attracting visitors to Cambridge and residents from across the city to this unique destination and boost trade for our local businesses. We envisage a ‘Mill Road festival’ celebrating this diverse community and its historic connections to the railway with exciting events, areas to relax outside our shops and temporary landscaping and planters to enhance the welcoming feel of the road.
Everyone’s invited to a public meeting at 7.30pm on 29th March at Romsey Mill to discuss ideas – like the ones shown below. Whether you’re a local resident, trader, parent or advocate for one of the many community groups in Romsey, please do get involved!
Please register your interest using the form at the bottom. And could you download and display this poster at your home or work?
|Could local schools get involved in Arts projects?|
|Where would we put areas to relax like this?|
|Would planters enhance the look of the street? Where could they go?|
|How about some streets stalls or a street market?|
We also need to be sure that residents can still access their properties, businesses can receive deliveries and more cycle parking is made available for the increased numbers of visitors.
Yes, I’m interested in coming to the public meeting, please keep me informed
