New pathway for Bar Hill Village Green – update

Work has begun today Wednesday 8 December to begin to lay a new path around the Village Green. This will link the existing pathways onto the Village Green from near the Church, the entrance to the school playing field and the Village Hall, forming a new loop around the Village Green and improving access for all.

You can see the route of the path below. The red line shows where the existing, damaged asphalt path will be replaced. The yellow line shows the approximate route of the new path. The surface will be finished with self-binding gravel as shown in the bottom right of the plan.

The new pathway is being paid for in full as an A14 legacy project by Highways England resulting from an application for funds made by the Parish Council in 2019. With a specified budget of £26,000 and limited options, the path was felt to be the best option to bring the widest benefit to the most residents in Bar Hill.

Updates regarding the work giving dates when areas of the Village Green may be closed will be posted here as soon as the schedule has been agreed. If you believe this will affect any activities you may be involved in or have planned during November and December, please contact clerk@barhillpc.org.uk

The Parish Council hope that you will enjoy using this helpful addition to the Village Green amenities and thank you for your understanding while the work is being carried out.
