Latest news: decision time for BCC

Some of you have asked what is happening with the cycle route as it has indeed gone quiet since the official close of the latest "consultation" on 14 October. By way of a holding news update:
Bucks County Council officers have made a final recommendation to go ahead with the Princess Mary Gate cycle route following the October consultation (directly with Manor Road residents, and inputted to by a number of other Wendover residents), a safety audit and a gathering of all evidence for and against the route (including the WPC vote against).
The formal process that now needs to be followed is that before a final decision is made, BCC are legally obliged to display this recommendation publicly for five days in a key decision report. This 'key decision report' is here: http://www.buckscc.gov.uk/moderngov/ieDecisionDetails.aspx?ID=2501

We understand that if no other objections (not already raised) are brought up then the decision (which I understand will be made on Friday 28 October) should be in favour of the route and work should start within three weeks. 
Thanks for all your help so far and please do forward this latest "holding news" onto contacts who have helped with this campaign.
We look forward to finding out officially and finally that the route is going ahead, seeing it created and using it!
