New Draft Waste and Minerals Local Plan

We were surprised to see that the last consultation was started on 15th November as we expected it to be held during the Purdah period as a result of the General Election.

We have prepared a Newsletter which should start to be distributed by the end of this week and included a guide to responding on well as highlighting both developments since our last and pointers as to what people may wish to include in their individual response

We are very disappointed to see the Astro Turf site included.

Our lawyers are preparing a considered submission to meet the 9th January 2020 deadline. It is important to remember that all submissions will be considered by the Inspector appointed by HMG and not by the authors of the draft plan.

The public enquiry into the Waterbeach incinerator is under way and we would expect the results to be known by around Easter. Should the Inspector decide in favour that decision will have an impact on the draft plan

Hemingford Golf Club Site, Astro Turf Site Activity, Golf Shop and Driving Range

We continue to draw HDC’s attention to the use to which both the bungalow and the Car Park are being put and the Environment Agencies failure to have the Astro-Turf site cleared following their refusal to grant an Environmental Permit. It is also our opinion that certain conditions relating to the Planning Permission for the Astro Turf Site have not been complied with and we have instructed our lawyers to write to Helen Wass at CambsCC drawing their attention to this.

We shall separately ask for the site to be deleted from the Appendix to the Draft Waste and Minerals Plan and ask that you  do the same

Sub-committee to assist with the process of preparing a detailed proposal for the Hemingford Golf Club to be granted the status of a Community Asset et seq

We are meeting with Sanders Boston to be presented with their report on December 2nd (next Monday) and will then discuss the next steps with you. Any submission needs to be made by end February 2020 at the latest


We must not be complacent.
