The North Area includes Arbury, East and West Chesterton, and Kings Hedges, and has an active Lib Dem team. See our blog below for what we've been doing for your area recently!
Since my last update https://www.cambridgelibdems.org.uk/sewage_works_development_update_the_necaap_forum we've had two further meetings of the forum, and a draft of the framework was due for presentation to Councillors at the end of November, however this has now been delayed due to the General Election.
This has also impacted on the timescale for this planning phase. More details when we have them.
I've attempted to summarise what is being discussed in this blog post - this is very high level and brief.Read more
Here is more detailed street by street breakdowns of answers to my informal survey on parking controls, as well as other results from the survey.Read more
I've "called in" planning application 19/0981/FUL . Calling in is the process by which a local Councillor can insist that a planning application decision is made at committee rather than by an individual officer under delegated powers.Read more
These are the results of the citizens jury.....read on for the initial results of the parking survey ( https://www.cambridgelibdems.org.uk/west_chesterton_parking_a_larger_scheme ) I'm reporting back initial results as of the time of writing.Read more
As noted in a previous blog post I had to select five top bids to progress to the next stage of the LHI process. I'm going to explain which ones I've selected, and some reasons for those as well as the ones I didn't progress.Read more
As residents will hopefully be aware, the Councils are in the process of preparing for the potential development of around ~7000 homes on the current site of the sewage works near to Cambridge North.
How wil this happen? How will decisions about the shaping of this take place?
Further to my last update on parking controls in West Chesterton http://bit.ly/chestertonparking201907 this is a further update.
My intention is to ask residents of the chesterton triangle area and hurst park areas if they are willing to go ahead to ask the Ascham area if it will expand to be one large scheme covering all three areas.Read more
This year the local highways process is slightly different, in that a cap of 5 bids per division has been placed. The local County Councillor, me in the Chesterton case, has to rank the top five to go to the next stage of the process. Read on to find out what bids have come in for Chesterton.Read more
We've been alerted there is a large funeral St Andrew's Church on Monday 29 July at 1pm. Alternative arrangements that Cllr Ian Manning put in place for traffic on St Andrew's Road to exit via the VIE estate will be in place.
This blog post attempts to update residents on the status of residents’ parking across West Chesterton and East Chesterton.
There is an added level of complexity because the County Divisions do not match the City ones. There is a Chesterton Division at County level, but West and East Chesterton Wards at City. This is important from an accountability perspective, as residents’ parking is a County matter. I’ve tried to note in each area update which Division (County) and Ward (City) it is in.
Please read on for a summary of the main areas, and a lot of detail on the work that has been done since 2017 to find workable solutions.Read more
