Residents to decide how tree planting money is spent
Cambridge residents will decide how the council should spend its £200,000 tree planting budget with the first phase costing £50,000 taking place over the coming year.
Planting schemes will take place over the next four years and Cambridge City Council officers have suggested where the money could be spent.
Ideas for the first year include additional boundary planting at Trumpington Recreation Ground costing £4,000, new trees for Romsey Recreation Ground, also costing £4,000 and £5,800 worth of planting at Cherry Hinton Recreation Ground.
But the final decisions will rest with the council's Area Committees in consultation with residents.
Rod Cantrill, Cambridge City Executive Councillor for Arts, Sport and Public Places said: "We are committed to maintaining and enhancing the green open spaces that make Cambridge a unique place in which to live.
"We want our residents to tell us how this money should be spent in their communities so that these areas can be improved for the enjoyment of the people living there and by generations to come."
