ELY has its masterplan, Sham has a Visin, but what abut Littleprt?

At a meeting n Mnday, Littleprt district cuncillr Fred Brwn dismissed talk f Littleprt getting its wn masterplan.

"We d need an verview fr the village in the near future," he said.

"Littleprt has gt mst f the majr develpment, but I dn't think a masterplan is right fr the village.

"We'd be putting t much int the melting pt and cme up with a dg's dinner.

"The Ely Masterplan has been very expensive. What has cme ut f it is that cnsultants dn't have all the answers, and we shuld get lcal peple rund the table t discuss what is right fr us."

But Cllr Andy Wright said: "With the cncentratin f funding n Ely Masterplan and Sham Visin we have t fight ur crner. We need t figure as much in these plans as anyne else and nt t be sld shrt because the fcus is in Ely.

"There is still a lng way t g n the Ely Masterplan. Our jb is t watch carefully and t make sure nthing happens t damage the village."

Lng-term 'wish lists' fr Littleprt include a new secndary schl, preferably placed in between Millfield and Littleprt primary, and a multi-strey car park built level with the railway tracks at the statin.

Cllr Christine Ambrse-Smith suggested new cycleways t the statin.
