Meadow Drift Appeal – Public Meeting – 7 November


All parishioners are invited to a public meeting on Wednesday, 7 November at 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the School Hall concerning the appeal against the refusal to grant planning permission for the Meadow Drift development off Broad End. Further information is set out in the latest edition of the Elsworth Times. This meeting will be an opportunity for parishioners to be brought up to date about the proposals and to express their views and listen to the views of others.

The Parish Council is also keen to encourage input from parishioners who cannot come to the meeting or who want to make their views known after the meeting. A mail drop box will therefore be available for this purpose in the Village Shop for 5 days after the date of the public meeting; alternatively, parishioners are welcome to email the Parish Clerk (  The confidentiality of submissions will be respected though they should carry the name of the persons making them if they are to be given their proper weight.

Cambridge Area Bus Users – Rural Services cutbacks

Cambridge Area Bus Users have been concerned about cutbacks in rural bus services which have left many people feeling isolated. We are aware that parish councils, being especially close to their communities, have been active in opposing cutbacks and in seeking service improvements.

We are a relatively-recently founded organisation, independent of any political party, seeking to represent – and campaign on behalf of – bus passengers in and around Cambridge.

Our Executive Committee wanted to explore how we can collaborate. To that end I am contacting parish clerks throughout what might be broadly defined as the ‘Cambridge Area’.

I would be greatly obliged if you could draw your councillors’ attention to the existence of Cambridge Area Bus Users and also to our forthcoming General Meeting (details in the hyperlinks) and ask them how, in their view we might collaborate.

All intending members and supporters are cordially invited to the General Meeting.
Date & time:     14:00 – 16:00 Saturday 6 October 2018
Location:                      Ross Street Community Centre, Ross Street, Cambridge, CB1 3UZ

On behalf of our Executive Committee, I look forward to hearing from you.


Best regards,

Richard Wood
Secretary, Cambridge Area Bus Users
