A1307 Update

The public-involvement stages of the A1307 Local Liaison Forum have started up again, and the next meeting will be on Wednesday 11th September, 6.30pm at Shire Hall, Castle Hill, Cambridge CB3 0AP.

This is a good opportunity for members of the public to engage in the process - please do so, as the changes to the road will be here to stay. Find out more

The Greater Cambridge Partnership is seeking residents' opinions on larger-scale elements of the project. These include a new roundabout at Bartlow Road, Linton; upgrading the Dean Road junction; a new Park and Ride site; new cycle routes; and changes to traffic light systems in Linton and Hildersham.

A1307 improvements due this financial year (before 31 March 2020)

  • Upgrade of traffic lights at Village College – completed

  • Bus lane from Dalehead to Village College plus upgrade of cycle path – May/June

  • Further consultation on parking proposals for the High Street and the operation of traffic lights at the High Street/A1307 junction – June, followed by implementation later in the year

  • Traffic lights at the Hildersham crossing – later this year, awaiting date

  • The work on the Dean Road crossing has moved to the 2020/21 programme, to be coordinated with the new roundabout at the Bartlow junction

All projects should be complete before the end of March 2021.

Planning - Bartlow Road, Linton

A couple of months ago, South Cambs’ Planning Committee refused a detailed application for 55 houses on Bartlow Road. The developers have now come back with two new applications, also for 55 houses.

These are new applications so public comments MUST be submitted again – previous comments will not count.

S/2073/19/OL is an outline application seeking to confirm the principle of development on the site. Since the first outline application, which was approved, the situation has changed. The Local Plan is in place and we have met the government's standards for land supply. This site is not in the Local Plan and is outside the Village Envelope, both good reasons for refusal. Comment on the application

S/2501/19/RM is the detailed plans for the site. Again, comments need be resent if you have a view. Quality of design, intrusion into the countryside and landscape treatment are the issues to highlight. Comment on the application 

There is a real chance, with the outline application, of getting the principle of development overturned, so do please respond via the above link.



Liberal Democrats run local campaigns across the District. We all support each other to do this, pooling our knowledge and efforts. You can view our campaigns on the campaigns page of this website.
