Funding Challenge For Motcombe To Gillingham Cycleway

A lack of obvious funding sources is putting a spoke in the wheel of plans to create a Motcombe to Gillingham cycle route.

And an off-road bike link between Shaftesbury and Motcombe, last touted by Shaftesbury Town Council in 2019, appears to have stalled.

Motcombe Parish councillor Peter Mouncey says progress has been made with improving walking and horse-riding routes between Motcombe and Gillingham, though. They have accessed a fund that could have been withdrawn because it has remained untouched for a decade.
