Consultation closing this week

Important deadlines for consultation

This is the last week for responses to the Greater Cambridge Partnership consultation on the Cambourne to Cambridge route and future Park and Ride sites, including one proposal for a park and ride site at Scotland Farm Dry Drayton. A printed booklet on the alternatives was distributed to all households. Consultation closes on 29 January at 23.59 hrs. If you intend to fill in the consultation questionaire on their web site at www.greatercambridge.org.uk  you might be disappointed as links to the pages you want on their site don’t seem to be working. We have told them about this, but it might be safer to send them a letter at Greater Cambridge Partnership, SH1311, Shire Hall, Cambridge, CB3 0AP.

At the Dry Drayton Parish Council meeting on Tuesday last the Parish Council agreed their response to the Greater Cambridge Partnership consultation and the letter which they signed off can be seen on their website here: Important Documents – Dry Drayton Parish Council

And if you want to let the planners know what you think about what could be the biggest housing development in Dry Drayton since the 1970s, then you have until 25th January to do so. For details of the proposal go to South Cambs website, View or comment on a planning application | South Cambs District Council  and search for application number S/4554/17/OL
It’s not too late to have your say on these issues affecting our community.

Madingley village is holding a further traffic meeting at 7pm this Wednesday (22nd) in the Madingley Village Hall. This is not a Parish Council meeting but a village meeting. All are welcome.

There are a lot of important issues being discussed and there will be information and discussion on the A14 upgrade, traffic measuring, the proposed busway into town and Madingley traffic calming.

1. Development in Dry Drayton

There will be an important discussion at Dry Drayton Parish Council on Tuesday 21st July (open to the public – in the Village Hall 7.30pm for 8pm) on permitted development in the village. South Cambs District Council Policy DP/7 states that outside the village framework, only development for agriculture, horticulture, forestry, outdoor recreation and other uses which need to be located in the countryside will permitted. A developer is applying for permission to erect six houses on land outside the village development area, stating that Policy DP/7 is out of date and should not be followed. You will find the planning application No S/1497/15/OL  at https://www.scambs.gov.uk/

2. Dry Drayton Parish Council’s Website

The council’s new website, under the government’s new Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities, has agendas, minutes and lots more at www.drydraytonpc.org.uk

3. City Deal Busway Proposals

This is the proposal to move the Madingley Road Park and Ride site to somewhere near Madingley Mulch and provide a busway from there to Cambridge. Further to the info on this already circulated, Bill & Sandra Martin advise us that there is an active group in Coton which is very concerned with this possible development.  There is a blog item on http://www.cotonvillage.co.uk/2015/06/12/proposed-new-route-through-coton-have-your-say/ and a googlegroup on https://groups.google.com/d/forum/west-cambridge-busway both of which might be of interest to Dry Drayton residents.

4. Super Fast Broadband in Dry Drayton
