Cambourne to Cambridge Public Transport Route – Have Your Say

With just weeks to go, the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) wants people to have their say on proposals for part of a new link between Cambourne and Cambridge. The GCP Project Team has been sharing proposals across the surrounding area, with a good turn-out at Dry Drayton Village Hall on Tuesday (6th).

The Project’s Communications Lead, Laura Gates, said: “We’re really keen to get to gather views as widely as possible, in particular from those in villages close to the proposed route and P&R sites. Views will be used to shape plans for an end-to-end route and P&R site, which will be presented to the GCP Board in the Autumn for final decision. We’ll also be attending the next Dry Drayton Parish Council meeting on Tuesday 12th, so please do come along if you have any questions”.

Consultation closes on Sunday 31 March and you can respond via the paper questionnaire delivered to homes and businesses in the area or online at www.greatercambridge.org.uk/cambournetocambridge

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.

 The Greater Cambridge Partnership, who are running the event say: We would be grateful if you could encourage members of the Parish Council and others locally to attend the event in order to have their say on the proposals for a new park and ride site and bus links into Cambridge.
