  • Council’s Recreation Development Group to seek costings from professional advisors to produce a master plan. We will be working with other groups in the village to ensure a joined-up approach for all village facilities. The scope of the project will see improvements of existing and provision of new facilities.  It will include consideration of a new artificial pitch on leased land at the Recreation Ground
  • Council confirmed it’s objection to the Western Option started in the Greater Cambridge Partnership, Waterbeach to Cambridge 2023 consultation. Council felt this option was likely to have substantial negative impact due to the proximity of the route to residential properties in Impington.  For more information, please see Full Council agenda, click here
