As some of you have noticed, a temporary car park is under construction in the field adjacent to the Greenacres development. This will accommodate the workers on site and was agreed in the plans for the site between the developer and the field owner.
The public footpath runs from Moorfield Road directly across the field to Hunts Road. Although the farmer has allowed us to walk on the track around the edge of the field, it is private land and is not a public right of way – he is therefore entitled to stop the use of it at any time. There is no public footpath connection from the one that crosses the field to Laceys Way. The car park area will be returned to its previous use once the development is complete.
For further information on all aspects of the development, the relevant documents can be found on the planning pages of the South Cambridgeshire District Council website www.scambs.gov.uk
For your convenience, here is a link to the approved Greenacres construction management statement – page 5 shows a map of the site.
