Leave our Causeway alone

I DON T know where Councillor Shellens conducted his survey (Letters, March 25) but I can tell him this: I have spoken to hundreds of Godmanchester residents in the street, in shops, in the pub and by far the majority want the minimum of change, ie 300 mm

I DON'T know where Councillor Shellens conducted his survey (Letters, March 25) but I can tell him this: I have spoken to hundreds of Godmanchester residents in the street, in shops, in the pub and by far the majority want the minimum of change, ie 300 mm onto the existing wall.

They do not want widened footpaths, flower gardens, extra parking and the whole currently-pleasant scene turned into a seaside marine drive. Leave it alone. Any incursion into the water will leave the carp nowhere to spawn each year, which is just one wildlife reason against this overkill idea.

The decision must be made by the people of Godmanchester and their elected representatives (of which I am one) with advice from The Environment Agency.

Can we please keep the ugly head of party politics out of this and just let the people of Godmanchester decide what they want, using the advice available and common sense.
