I naively thought they had some input and were driving it.
Ckwiv I think you are well aware that Labour and the community have fought and won the case for keeping the crossing patrol. A Toucan crossing will be an additional safe route for cyclists and pedestrians all hours, not just at the beginning and end of school.
"You don,t get handed 250k towards a cycle path for nothing.To clarify, normally to get extra funding then it may well improve the chances of getting the project completed and also give other benefits as well i.e. better,safer road for all users. However, you also should look long term and evaluate possible other side effects, i.e. more housing or commercial premises on Colchester Rd , access to future developments the other side of Clingoe Hill . Not to say that these may or may not be beneficial to Wivenhoe Edited to comply with Moderators request . "

With your approval I would like to proceed with option 1, and seek the additional funding from Colchester LHP with the fall back position of going with option 3a.
The next steps would be to undertake detailed design and costing of the chosen route.
If you would like a more detailed discussion then I am sure we can put this on the agenda for the next Commissioning Board.
