Amey Incinerator

The Parish Council has learned that Amey is to appeal against the refusal of the Cambridgeshire County Council planning committee grant permission for an Energy from Waste facility at Waterbeach Waste Management Park. There are are no firm details available yet, but we will keep residents updated when we have further information. Meanwhile guidance about the process can be found here.

Once an Inspector has been assigned and the appeal registered, the Planning Inspectorate will write to the Cambridgeshire County Council as the Waste Planning Authority, who in turn will contact all those individuals and organisations who made representation on the planning application, advising them how they can participate in the appeal process. In due course, details of the appeal will appear on the Planning inspectorate web site   (19/03/19)

A chance to have your say on Policing priorities in South Cambridgeshire

South Cambridgeshire Police want to know your thoughts on policing in the area. They have launched a Questionnaire and will use the results from this survey in monthly meetings where they grade and direct their priorities.

This is your opportunity to influence policing in the your local area, bearing in mind that their remit also covers issues such as parking and anti-social behaviour. It takes on average 6 minutes to complete and will provide them with a framework to ensure that they are fully sighted on what our communities want.
