Residents who got together to have their say on the Cambridge's new Tivoli pub, have set up a permanent group to give them a voice on future developments in the area.

The Friends of Mitcham's Corner will hold their inaugural meeting at the Waterman pub at 8pm on Thursday, October 14.

The meeting is open to anyone who is interested in preserving and enhancing the environment in and around Mitcham's Corner.

Cambridge City Councillor, Max Boyce, who represents West Chesterton welcomed the initiative.

"I am delighted that residents are taking an active part in their community," he said. "This is an area of Cambridge which is changing and there are a number of large planning applications that will be coming forward for discussion.

"The Friends of Mitcham Corner will be able to present a collective voice to make sure that residents' views are heard and acted upon."

Future planning applications include the site of the office supplies giant, Staples, land at 1 Milton Road and Cambridge City football ground.
