Gamlingay Parish Council

Footpath 10 closure (PROW = Pubic Right of Way)

When the developers of the Green End site (Morris Homes) applied to Cambridgeshire County Council to close the footpath for 6 months due to construction works, the Parish Council was consulted. It did not want to hold up construction but commented that "This Council has concerns about the length of the closure order, and would like opening of the section to Maple Court to be prioritised to reopen as soon as possible (adjacent to factory units to the south)." The developers responded as follows "We will of course work with the Parish and as soon as a suitable safe route can be provided through our works area, we will look to provide it. However we believe that for safety reasons the route needs to be fully closed during demolish works and during initial construction works to ensure the safety of the local people." County Council agreed and the closure was approved until 4th April 2021.

Subsequently, Morris Homes applied for an extension to the closure for a further 6 months stating that "there haven’t been any delays to our programme however we were told during the first application that we couldn’t close the PROW for any larger period than six months in one go and therefore it was always going to need to be extended. As mentioned in previous email correspondence we’d be more than happy to meet someone on site so that you can see the location of the PROW against our required construction works so that it is clear to everyone as to the safety reasons this cannot be open." The extension was granted to the 4th October 2021. The Parish Council understands and sympathises with residents who are very inconvenienced and frustrated by this closure as it is an important route through from Greenacres to the rest of the village, but it also understands that it cannot be opened until it is safe to do so.
