View from Castle Mound.
Cambridge Ramblers are about to apply for the path leading to the top of Castle Mound to officially become a Public Right of Way. This follows worries that access to the Mound could be withdrawn when Cambs County Council vacate the Shire Hall site. The County Council has issued a “Landowners Deposit” on the site and has said “…we have always allowed public access, but we don’t believe it is a public right of way.”
However, Cambridge Ramblers believe that access to the Mound is a right of way and has been for at least the last 20 years.
Please support our application by filling in the Evidence Form and sending to firstname.lastname@example.org – send any queries to the same address.
In addition, some County and City Councillors have lodged an application for the Castle Mound and Shire Hall forecourt to be registered as a Town Green. You can support their application by contacting Cllr Jocelynne Scutt email@example.com or Cllr Claire Richards Claire.firstname.lastname@example.org
Update: Cambridge Ramblers have submitted the official footpath application, known as a DMMO, and this is currently being investigated by Suffolk County Council (who were delegated by Cambridgeshire County Council). [09/03/20]
