Haddenham.net revealed today that the long planned Safe Cycling route in Haddenham is under threat following a potential reversal in funding agreements.
Cynthia Floud, Chair of the Haddenham Safer Walking & Cycling Group, recently attended a Zoom meeting with local Councillors from Thame, South Oxford District Council and Oxfordshire where she learnt that the Oxfordshire Growth Board had decided that the Haddenham-Thame Greenway did not meet Government criteria. These require that any project funded by the Growth Fund assists in the viability of new housing development.
BUT the decision has not been formally announced and therefore is not final.
Bucks Councillors and some Oxfordshire and South Oxford District Councillors are doing all they can to stop the decision being finalised.
The Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet has contacted the Oxfordshire Growth Board expressing support for the Haddenham -Thame Greenway and asking them to reconsider.
