Recent work in creating wetlands at Stourbridge Common aims to promote local wildlife and will assist with efforts to protect species in Cambridge.
Abbey Cllr Haf Davies said: “It’s brilliant to see the Labour-run City Council taking proactive steps to promote biodiversity. Stourbridge Common is a brilliant green space in the heart of Abbey ward and is an asset to the whole of Cambridge. These new wetlands are an excellent opportunity to encourage local wildlife as we take steps to tackle the biodiversity emergency.”
Labour councillors also asked for resurfacing of the well-used cycle and pedestrian path on the common, improving safety. The resurfacing works complement ongoing work with the construction of the Chisholm Trail, a cycle route linking the north and south of the city, which is making exciting progress.
