Covid-19 as the lockdown eases.
We trust everyone remains well and are delighted to see Council Meetings being held in person again.
Astro Turf Site – Planning Application Reference FMW/072/19
On 20th May Mick George Limited formally withdrew this application. The letter of withdrawal was as follows:
New Farm West, Hemingford
Application Reference FMW/072/19
Mick George Ltd wish to formally withdraw the application submitted to vary conditionsat the New Farm West site in Hemngford.
The Company will instead rely on the extant planning consent and is satisfied that the building permitted under the consent (reference H/1424/98) is able to be constructed on site within the building in line with the requirements of Condition 13.
Whilst the withdrawal is good news there is no cause for complacency. We have carefully considered all implications and believe that it would be extremely detrimental for MGL to exploit the existing permission. It is essential that we continue to emphatically challenge MGL’s view that this historical consent can be used.

We have had helpful meetings with the Manager of the American Golf operation and with the sub lessee they have contracted to operate expanded catering facilities. We encourage all our supporters to support these ventures.

Now that elections are over we wish to see CCC and Peterborough adopt the new Waste and Minerals Plan as a matter of priority so that the safeguards we have secured can be implemented.

The Car Park is now emptied.
SUB_COMMITTEE TO ASSIST WITH THE PROCESS OF PREPARING A DETAILED PROPOSAL FOR THE HEMINGFORD GOLF CLUB TO BE GRANTED THE STATUS OF COMMUNITY ASSET et seq
