We await news of the ‘active travel’ fund and whether the east-west route will go ahead once the newly elected county council returns.

The Crow Lane section was opposed by Dean Collins (Labour) and Jack Woolley (Conservative) who were both elected for their constituencies.

The Chatsworth Road section was opposed the the previous county councillor John Boult (Conservative) and the prospective (Labour) candidate Steve Lismore. Interestingly about 100 votes went from Conservative to Lib Dem meaning the Lib Dem candidate was elected. The Labour vote fell by around 200 from the last election. Our Campaign has 35+ members in the ward covered by Chatsworth Road, perhaps the two candidates opposition to the route made a difference!
