Hobson's Brook corridor 10-year vision consultation

Consultation runs from 22 November 2017, 10:00am to 9 January 2018, 11:59pm

Introduction and background

The Hobson's Brook corridor is an important green infrastructure corridor to the south of Cambridge city centre. It has multiple aspects that contribute to the cultural and historic heritage, as well as an environmental legacy that enhances Cambridge. These include a rare chalk stream, an ecological corridor, the unique historical waterway of Hobson's Conduit (dating back to 1614), and an important flood risk management asset.

Following the gathering and collation of data, reports and studies, we have defined a series of potential actions and a priority timeline for implementation – a vision for the corridor.
