Cambourne To Cambridge – Consultation Event on Tuesday 9 Jan.

Cambourne To Cambridge  – Consultation Event on Tuesday 9 Jan.

 We have just been reminded that there will be a consultation event taking place tomorrow evening (Tuesday 9th January 2018), at Dry Drayton Village Hall from 6-8pm

 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. As one of the proposed sites is at Scotland Farm, we are particularly keen to hear local views from Dry Drayton on the project.

Written Consultation Exercise

You will probably have received at least one booklet about the various options for this scheme (locations of a new Park and Ride site and different routes into Cambridge)  and a further letter of clarification dated 28 November 2017, inviting you to take part in the consultation exercise – just a reminder that the closing date for the consultation process is 29th  Jan at 23.59.

Dear All,

1. Your Parish Council wants to hear from you

Next Tuesday, 15th November, the Parish Council meets. Their agenda is on the Parish Council’s website www.drydraytonpc.org.uk . The meeting starts at 8pm, members of the public can speak only at the beginning of the agenda. There is still time before the meeting to give the Parish Council your views on the four questions they posed in their mini village questionnaire in the November Village Newsletter. The questions (see page 8 of the November Dry Drayton Village Newsletter) relate to introducing CCTV into the village, planning issues regarding new housing near the school, preventing dog fouling and how the PC communicates. You can e-mail your responses to the questions to the Parish Clerk  clerk@drydraytonpc.org.uk and/or to Councillor Sylvia Pryer sylviapryer@aol.com , or if you prefer, you can complete the questionnaire online at the Village Website http://www.drydrayton.net

2. West Cambridge Park and Ride, Scotland Farm Dry Drayton

In case you had not heard about the proposal to site the West Cambridge Park and Ride car park at Scotland Farm – this is on the Parish Council’s agenda for Tuesday. You will find material on this on the Greater Cambridge City Deal website http://tinyurl.com/hddnxw

3.  Police and Crime Commissioner

The Police and Crime Commissioner (former Dry Drayton resident Jason Ablewhite) has just published his latest Newsletter which you can read on his website at http://www.cambridgeshire-pcc.gov.uk/whats-new/newsletters/. He has just signed a rural crime concordat with the Police and Crime Commissioners of Norfolk and Suffolk  promoting closer cross border cooperation on rural crime. Incidentally, following the recent spate of burglaries in the village,  there is advice for you on security from our Village Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator and from the Cambs Constabulary on the village website www.drydrayton.net

Police activity in Dry Drayton

A couple of months ago police prioritised dealing with antisocial behaviour in the vicinity of the School – until mid August. Does anyone know the outcome of this work? We have asked the e-cops but have not had a reply.

Meanwhile we clearly are getting some police attention in the village as according to e-cops yesterday:

” This morning for around one hour (0830 hrs onwards), PC Soni and PC Reeve conducted speed/seatbelt/mobile phone checks along Scotland Farm Road, Dry Drayton.  Traffic was light to moderate, and only one vehicle was stopped which was doing slightly over the 40mph limit and words of advice were given. There were no other offences. PCSO Karen Mahoney”
