South Area meeting: 4th June

by Amanda Taylor on 24 May, 2018

The next South Area meeting is on Monday 22nd July, at the Cherry Hinton Village Centre. It starts at 7 p.m. with an Open Forum when anybody can ask a question or raise an issue with councillors. Although the area meeting cannot always sort things out on the spot, it can request action from council departments and get balls rolling.

It will include a report from the Greater Cambridge Partnership presenting the results of their recent public consultation, ‘City access/ Choices for better Journeys’, and on the Cambridge South East Transport developments.

There will also be progress reports from the County Council on pedestrian and cyclist safety improvements for Queen Edith’s Way and the Fendon Road roundabout.

There’s also the regular Environmental Services report. City Council officers will report on their activities over the past three months, with a particular focus on areas they have been asked to concentrate on. Let us know if you want us to bring up any issues.

The agenda is here.

    I can’t believe this station is still only a ‘maybe’. I have worked at Addenbrooke’s for 30 years and we needed a station there back when I started. We certainly need a station more than the north of the city ever did. I can’t make the meeting tonight, but if it came to a vote, I would definitely be voting for a station at Addenbrooke’s.

    thank you

    Can I please encourage all councillors attending the meeting to read in advance the Smarter Cambridge Transport response to the GCP Cambridge South East Consultation? It’s full of great thinking not only about long-term solutions but also some very achievable short-term measures which could be instituted if only our authorities had the gumption to actually do something: https://www.smartertransport.uk/response-to-cambridge-south-east-transport-study-a1307-consultation-2018/
