A second petition on grazing and fencing on Coldham’s Common

Dear Common User

The council are presently “consulting” on a management plan for the common.

The officers of the council want to graze with cows on the Barnwell Road section of the common, which will require 600m of more fencing and more gates [ = £20 000 ?]. We have been told “off the record” this is what is going to happen whatever. We don’t think this is right, but you have no option to say no in the consultation.

We have a petition with the council to say :
1. No grazing here on the Barnwell Road / LNR section, thank you.
2. No more fencing and gates, ta.
3. Please remove the existing wooden fencing and unnecessary gates.

There are a lot more details on the state of the common on the petition text page on this blog.

We hope that you will sign this.  See the website at

Thanks for your time

Friends of Coldhams Common

P.S. We also hope you will feedback on the management consultation if you have time : https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/have-your-say-on-the-future-of-coldhams-common
