Whitehill Road verge protection and biodiversity consultation

Consultation open from 3 February to midday on 2 March 2022.

We plan to plant up to 40 trees on the green verges along Whitehill Road. The verges are currently in good or reasonable condition, and this will protect them from damage caused by vehicles parking on them.

We also want to improve the local biodiversity. To do this we plan to create four new perennial wildflower meadow areas on the corners of the junctions with Stanesfield Road and Thorleye Road.

We have identified locations for the trees and meadows after considering how they would fit within the existing streetscape. You can see the proposed locations on our map of the Whitehill Road verge protection and biodiversity proposal [PDF, 0.6MB].

Have your say

We want to learn whether you support the proposals to plant new trees and wildflower meadows on Whitehill Road. Our short survey should only take about five minutes to complete.

The consultation is open until midday on 2 March 2022. If you have any questions about the proposal or consultation, contact us at projectdevelopment@cambridge.gov.uk or 07923 382595.

Printed copies of the survey are available at the Abbey People Resource Centre on Barnwell Road.

Next steps

If responses are in favour of the proposal, we will develop the project further. The exact extent of planting will depend on how much budget can be made available from our Environmental Improvement Programme.
