The Street Party

Last Sunday (July 27th) we had a wonderful street party to celebrate Tenison Road’s 125th year since it’s official opening and, with lots of people from the neighbourhood milling around, we had the opportunity to showcase some of the data activities we’ve been working on with the community. As you’ll see from the photos, we had lovely weather and with local residents out in force,  it was a fab day with a real community spirit in the air. Follow the link to see the photos.

Data-Instruments go live at the Street Party

A few snaps of our data-instruments at the Tenison Road Street Party last Sunday. If you’re curious and would like to know more, email us.

Poll results: Council proposals

A couple of weeks ago we put 8 posters up on Tenison road and Devonshire road for one week asking about the importance of each one of the council proposed street changes for the neighbourhood (check related post here). You  can find the council proposals here

We are excited to say that 283 buttons were pressed across all the posters during this week. You were mostly in favour of all of the proposed changes (except from the changes on Devonshire). You were more supportive of proposals 6, 3 and 1 (Canon’s green, Felton street junction and Mill road junction).

Here are the results from the posters; the inner pie chart represents the total number of votes cast whereas the outer one the number of votes excluding suspect multiple votes (based on time of button press).

Feel free to comment or contact us if you have any questions on the data, posters etc.

Proposal 1: Your support for Mill road/Tenison road junction

Polling interest in the Tenison Road public consultation

poll

To compliment the interactive posters placed along Tension Road, we’ve set up an online poll to gauge how many people are attending this Thursday’s Public Consolation on the proposed traffic/environmental enhancement scheme.

Make sure you’re counted either by using the interactive posters or the online poll!

(Results from the posters will be added to the online poll later this week)

Local history noticeboard for Tenison Road

More news, this time from Cambridge City Council. Thanks to Frank Gawthrop’s (GTARA) initiative, Tenison Road is getting a new notice board, this time dedicated to local history. The idea came out our discussions about an Archive for Tenison Road and ways to display the materials we’re collecting. The noticeboard will be installed on Canons Green and hopefully be of a similar style to the one there now, but able to be closed.

Details can be downloaded from the City Council website here and seen on page 30.

Consultation on traffic and environmental scheme
