The Girton Parish Council
Reduced Speed Limit along Oakington Road:
Safer Routes to School: The Girton Glebe School has been chosen as one of six schools in the area allowed to submit projects to the Safer Routes to School project. The sum of money is not guaranteed, although is thought to be quite large. The aim is to increase the number of cyclists and decrease car journeys to school. Likely projects include a revamp of the cycle sheds at the school and possible raised walkways across Redgate Road and Wellbrook Way. A Pelican crossing on Cambridge Road remains an issue, but unfortunately at a recent site meeting, traffic was exceptionally light. There will be another site meeting in the autumn.
Caretaker for The Pavilion: Please see the advertisement
for this new position.
Bus Service: Cambridge Bus Users Campaign (CAMBUC) has supplied the Council with data collecting forms to be used by regular bus users. The forms should give a realistic portrayal of failing areas within the service.
Consideration of Bus Pass Rebate: The Parish Council has agreed to give a rebate of £10 to holders of concessionary bus passes, as last year. An additional condition decrees that the claimant must reside in Girton on the day they collect their rebate. Further details will appear in next month's GPN.
Next Meeting: The Parish Council is in recess in August so the next meeting will be on Wednesday 20th September 2000 at 7.45 pm in Orchard Close Community Room.
