Haddenham Safe Walking & Cycling Group is delighted to announce that AVDC's Cabinet has just approved the application for £102,225, made by Haddenham Parish Council with the assistance of our Group to make the Green Lane Community Path.
The money comes from the New Homes Bonus Scheme; ours was the only village project which met the criteria for this Scheme, which is designed to give money to those areas which take a lot of new housing. It is therefore right and proper that Haddenham should receive it.
We would like to thank all those who supported the application.
This path will provide a smooth dry surface for young and old to use for walking, cycling and pushing buggies and wheelchairs in safe and delightful surroundings.
The next stage is for an advert for contractors to be put on the approved website, a contractor to be appointed and work to begin. The Project Manager will be Dr Robyn Thorogood.
