Status of Milton's Walk and Christ's Lane, Cambridge

David Earl made this Freedom of Information request to Cambridgeshire County Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Cambridgeshire County Council,

Please would you clarify the legal status of Christ's Lane (here http://osm.org/go/0EQHfTPsU-?m= ) and Milton's Walk (here http://osm.org/go/0EQHfdD_g-?m= ) including the short section linking through to King Street.

Are both of these public rights of way? Are they public highway? What classes of vehicle are permitted or not permitted, and what Orders or other legal instruments form the basis for this? Please disclose any such instruments.

In particular, is it legal to cycle in either of these locations?

Yours faithfully,

David Earl

Dear Anna,

Thank you very much for the very comprehensive reply.

(Curiously, this would seem to suggest that it is actually illegal to make use of the new bike racks installed by Cambridge City Council at the east end of Christ's Lane, as all bikes are not permitted on any of the three directions of approach, even wheeled).

Regards,
David Earl
