PROPOSED new footpaths, cycleways and bus stops to link an evolving conservation project to the surrounding community will be on show during a public consultation.
Members of the public are being asked to comment on the future vision of the Great Fen Project, which aims to restore 3,700 hectares of fenland by joining Woodwalton and Holme Fen nature reserves.
The Great Fen Project draft illustrative masterplan will provide a visual and written guide for the project's future, showing how it will evolve over the coming years.
The masterplan will include information on proposed access routes to and within the project including new footpaths, cycleways, bridleways, waterways and bus stops.
It will also provide details on potential viewpoints and points of interest.
The public consultation is running until Friday, October 16, and will include a series of events for people to learn more about the project.
