Tell us what you think of our plans for access improvements to Hodson's Folly

Consultation runs from

20 May 2016, 9:43am to 24 June 2016, 11:59am

Introduction and background

We're proposing to make access improvements at Hodson’s Folly and the surrounding enclosed garden, using Section 106 funding.

Hodson’s Folly is adjacent to Coe Fen next to the River Cam in Trumpington ward, within a walled garden. 

The purpose of this project is to improve accessibility to the Folly and its surrounding garden and we're proposing a number of options to improve the access pathway, as well as the general safety and environment of the area.

It's hoped that these improvements will increase interest in this historically important feature of Cambridge and lead to future developments (depending on future availability of funding).
