County Council by-election
Following Peter Topping’s resignation as County Councillor for Duxford division, I decided to put myself forward for this seat in the by-election, which will be held on Thursday 27th February 2020. Given all that is going on with infrastructure and the impact that County-level decisions have on us, I felt it was the right thing to do. Naturally you'll all make up your own minds about this!
Wellcome Genome Campus (AgriTech)
Hinxton and other parishes submitted to the Secretary of State to call in the planning decision based on landscape issues and inconsistencies. We have been informed that the Secretary of State will not be making any decision until 30th March 2020.
Huawei consultation is now
Public consultation is taking place now for the proposed Huawei development at the former Spicer’s site in Sawston. Be sure to have your say before it closes on 22nd February 2020.
Marshall won’t be coming to Duxford
As I expect you'll be aware, Marshall Aerospace and Defence reluctantly decided against Duxford as a potential relocation site. This was largely because of the excessive stress that would be put on historic aircraft due to flight restrictions over the village and the surrounding area, which would in turn make it impossible to carry out any aerobatics from this site.
