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

Application for Tree works 3 Church Lane

Application Ref:


TPO No. (if applicable):

Mr Smith

3, Church Lane


Cambridgeshire, CB23 4HU


Mr Paul Dracott

West Barns Design Ltd

1, West Barns

Shepreth Road

Barrington, Cambridgeshire, CB22 7TB

Tree(s) Location:

3, Church Lane, Elsworth, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB23 4HU


This application is for the removal of a small Taxus baccata (yew) to the side of the house. This is part of works to use this space and open up light to this side of the house.

The tree is growing from a base of a small retaining wall to the boundary of the property and is likely to be a self set specimen as it has several small stems.


The tree has outgrown its space and will soon start to impact on the structural integrity of the wall. It planned to remove this tree and replace with a more suitable deciduous tree such as a multi stem Amelanchier landmarkii
