The Greater Cambridge Partnership is extending the Cambourne to Better Bus Journeys public consultation to give residents additional time to consider the options.
We want as many people as possible to find out about what options are proposed and to give us their views on those options. So far, we have received more than 350 responses to the consultation since it started on Monday, November 13.
Since last week, we have been made aware of some information about the proposal that was unintentionally left out of some material. We have updated this information and we are grateful for the feedback we have received which pointed this out.
We have also been made aware of an anonymous campaign leaflet entitled “Important extra information” being distributed to communities along the route, which has a similar look and feel as the Partnership’s consultation document.
The Greater Cambridge Partnership is in no way affiliated with, or supportive of, the contents of this leaflet.
We welcome and encourage the widest range of views and the right for people to hold and present alternative views. However, in attempting to take on the identity of the partnership, it may constitute a breach of our copyright and we are seeking legal advice, as it has the potential to mislead or confuse residents seeking to respond.
As a public body, it is very important to us that everyone who is interested in the provision of transport along this route has a chance to shape our proposals.
That is why we have responded to the feedback and will extend the consultation for a further week to enable all interested parties to participate.
We encourage people to find out more about the proposals online or at one of the public events being held around the area and tell us their views on the scheme.
The consultation will now run from 13 November for 11 weeks, through to January 29 2018. Visit the consultation page at www.greatercambridge.org.uk/c2c.
