Working Hard • Greens Win Here • Standing up for Abbey

Our Four Pillars for Abbey

More Protected Green Space

Cllr Hannah Copley

The pandemic has shown us just how important green space is. Abbey’s Green Spaces must be better protected from proposed nearby developments and its biodiversity encouraged.

Better Green Transport

Abbey Ward

The current travel network in Abbey, especially buses, is very poorly connected. Congestion on Newmarket Road, potholes, cycle lanes which end suddenly all makes this worse. Abbey needs better, greener transport now.

Local Wellbeing not Developer Profit

Matthew Howard

The level of development in Cambridge is currently unsustainable. Projects always prioritise the profits of developers not residents. We should build only genuinely affordable and sustainable houses which meet the needs of local people.

Build Community Reduce Inequality

Cllr Naomi Bennett

Abbey is an often forgotten part of the most unequal city in the UK. Through strengthening community ties and sharing resources more fairly across the city, we can improve the lives of Abbey residents.
