Babraham Rd developments: a platform for residents' views
As the new housing developments continue apace off Babraham Road, councillors Clare Delderfield and Brian Milnes are pleased that the Lib Dem-run district council is setting up a brand new Liaison Meeting for Sawston from the autumn. This will enable issues around the developments to be resolved more quickly.
"Local residents can get frustrated if concerns they have about new developments are not acted on there and then," said Brian. "We have seen these type of Liaison Meetings work really well in other places undergoing growth, both before lockdown and now using virtual meetings, and we are delighted that we will be able to have this available for Sawston."
Clare added, "Sawston really needs good new housing in the village, especially the addition of around 60 affordable properties at this site. If we can make the construction process as positive as possible for current residents that is a good thing."
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.
