Liberal Democrat County Councillor Ian Manning has hit out at Labour Leader Lewis Herbert after Herbert accused him of wanting “the world to go away, the greater Cambridge Partnership to go away” at a meeting of the Greater Cambridge Partnership Executive yesterday (2017-07-26).
Cllr Manning had submitted notice to the greater Cambridge Partnership that he could not support the plans for Milton Road – after representations at the Local Liaison Forum had once again been effectively ignored.
“Cllr Herbert can claim to be residents’ rep on the Great Cambridge Partnership all he wants, with multiple voices from the community not content with plans, he still won’t stand up for residents and slow the progress of this project.”
Kings Hedges Lib Dem campaigner Jamie Dalzell pressed the meeting as to why the promise of “Mature” replacement trees had now back tracked to “semi mature” replacement trees.
“For all Labour’s criticism of the 2010 coalition, its seems Cllr Herbert is happy to vote along with the Conservatives on half formed plans that could see Milton Road’s beautiful tree line ruined.” said Jamie.
