The poll is now closed. Thank you for voting.
The Parish Council would like to know how much interest there is in a cycle track to link Whissendine to Oakham, ahead of making any application to Rutland County Council. Previous experience has shown the most direct route via Langham is too costly because of the lack of roadside verges and a gas main in the wrong place. A track to Ashwell is longer but would link with other cycle paths already provided.
Please give your vote to one of the following:
NOTE: 20 votes against the cycle track proposal have been made by the same person over a 5-minute period and 19 of these votes will be removed from the final vote tally. We have amended the poll to prevent this from happening again and will check all votes before presenting the findings to the council.
