Might you be able to help promote this invite to view a potential new 
public open space for the City?

Please see attached for information about three planned guided tours of 
the Coldham’s Lane / Cherry Hinton lakes, that are being organised by 
the City Council.

Thursday 24th September 14.30—16.00

Tuesday 29th September 12.30—14.00

Saturday 3rd October 10.30—12.00

Policy 15 in the draft Local Plan includes the potential to open this 
currently private site for quiet recreation. Preliminary ideas about the 
opening of the lakes are likely to be discussed at the following Area 
Committee Meetings:

o             South Area Committee 5 October

o             East Area Committee meeting 29 October

The guided walks are intended to give members of the public an 
opportunity to get a better understanding of the lakes, so that they can 
give well informed opinions on the proposals.

I thought you might like to promote this to pupils and parents. They 
will need to register to attend one of the walks at 
Parks at cambridge.gov.uk <mailto:Parks at cambridge.gov.uk> or by calling 
01223 458532

Please note:

-              Access is predominantly along earth tracks which may be 

-              Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian

-              No dogs or cycles can be taken around the lakes

-              You will need to wear stout footwear and clothing 
suitable to the conditions

-              You will be asked to stay with the group and adhere to 
any onsite instructions

-              There are no toilet facilities on the site

Many thanks
