Wednesday 12 June 2019: In listening mode on Bourn Airfield

At our Cabinet meeting last week, we agreed to consult on the Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document. I know what you are thinking as this sounds dry and technical. However, this is in fact a really important consultation for people to get involved in.

The document sets out a proposed vision and masterplan for the new village to make sure it is a great place to live and work for new residents and people living nearby.

We want the new village to have great schools, shops and a 21st century centre where people enjoy meeting for recreation as well as shopping. We also want to make sure that the new village is designed so it supports our aim of reducing car use.

But what we really want is for you to get involved in the consultation that will launch next week. We are in listening mode so please make sure you have your say.

You can take a look at the draft documents we considered at Cabinet by visiting the agenda page on our website.

From Monday 17 June you can have your say by visiting www.scambs.gov.uk/bournairfieldspd. It closes on Monday 29 July.


Tuesday 4 June 2019: Scout celebration at AGM

Gamlingay village sign

Welcome to my new Leader's blog. Through the blog I hope to be able to share with you a mixture of the work I am doing as the Leader of the Council along with some great things taking place in my patch as the local member for Gamlingay.

Last night I attended the AGM of the Gamlingay and Gransden Cubs and Scouts. It was brilliant to witness Chloe, one of the Scouts, being awarded the Queen's Scout Award by the County Commissioner. We were told this is the highest award for a Scout which is an incredible achievement. Well done Chloe.

In my future blogs I hope to also be able to share more photos with you. I'll try remember to take some snaps and make sure we tick all the boxes with permissions too.
