CONSULTATION ON THE HOUSEHOLD RECYLCING SERVICE

Cambridgeshire County Council’s consultation on the Household Recycling Service started Friday 15 August and will run for a six-week period until Friday 26 September. During this period you are encouraged to complete the online questionnaire which can be found at http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/recyclingcentreservice.

This online consultation focuses on residents’ current use of the service and their thoughts on the options being considered – which range from closing sites; transferring them to charitable or voluntary organisations; reduction in hours and days of operation across all sites; charging for certain DIY waste streams; and limiting the use of sites to larger vehicles to deter trade waste use. This online consultation will run alongside surveys being undertaken by AmeyCespa on our behalf at all of the nine household recycling centres (HRCs) within Cambridgeshire (Alconbury, Bluntisham, Milton, March, St Neots, Thriplow, Whittlesey, Wisbech and Witchford) to ensure users of the service can have their say.

LOCAL PLAN                                                       

The Local Plan was presented for public consultation last summer, for the proposed 540 new homes for Sawston on three sites all with sole access from Babraham Road with two of the sites in Green Belt. Sawston Parish Council acknowledged the need for some additional homes but considered the village schools, health centre and other amenities could not cope with this amount of development and the increased volume of traffic it would generate.

The Parish Council mounted a campaign to persuade SCDC that this scale of development was excessive.  Our efforts were unsuccessful and at a meeting in March SCDC voted to accept the plan.

 

LOCAL SITES ANNOUNCED TO PROVIDE NEW HOMES - please see attached press release issued Monday 3rd June
