East West Rail
Ian attended several EWR meetings recently, and has asked Anthony Browne MP to lobby for a route from a proposed Cambourne North station into Cambridge North to be included in the next consultation, which is expected early next year.
The Cambourne North proposal is extremely popular in Cambourne, and has the potential to align much better with the next Local Plan than other options.
EWR has launched its Community Hub website where residents can engage with the process. Once you have registered, you can access information, opportunities for feedback through discussion and surveys, and the formal consultation when that comes.
Cambourne to Cambridge busway
The Mayor has said that he will be bringing a new route proposal to the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority Transport & Infrastructure Committee meeting on 4th November. We have no further information at this point but will report back as soon as we know more!
District councillor resignation
As you may have seen, our ward colleague Phil Allen has resigned from the District Council. Due to the pandemic, a by-election will most likely not be held until May 2021 (alongside County Council, Mayoral and Police and Crime Commissioner elections). We will obviously be stepping up to cover Phil’s duties in the meantime, and hope you won’t see any difference, but do let us know if you have any concerns.
You can view all our campaigns on the campaigns page of this website.
Do you have an idea for a campaign in your community? Why not let us know, or better yet, let's run it together.
