    News from the Neighbourhood Plan team

    South Cambridgeshire District Council has published its pre-determination statement on the draft Waterbeach Neighbourhood Plan. This statement is a mandatory requirement that demonstrates that the Waterbeach Neighbourhood Plan is compatible with certain European Union environmental protection obligations. It determines that the making of the Waterbeach Neighbourhood Plan is not likely to have a significant effect on a European site. This is good news and means that work can continue on the development of the Plan.

    In this regard the Neighbourhood Plan team would like to thank everyone who responded to the recent pre-submission consultation document. The team is now busy analysing your comments.  (11/03/20)

  • Coronavirus - advice from Public Health England

    There are some really simple steps we can all take to get into good habits to protect ourselves and others to stop the spread of viruses and germs including Coronavirus. These include:

  • Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds, and use soap and hot water.
  • Particularly remember to wash your hands after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas or travelling on public transport.
  • Promote the Catch it, Bin it, Kill it campaign: we can all reduce the spread of all germs when we cough or sneeze, by covering mouths and noses with a tissue, or a sleeve (not your hands) if you don't have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately in a closed bin
