Last chance to respond to the consultation

windmillOur Neighbourhood Plan ‘regulation 14’ consultation runs until midnight this Friday (16 Nov 18). This is the last chance for people to participate …

We’re pleased with the responses. We’ve had 5000 visits to this site and the best part of 300 people have submitted input. We’ve met hundreds outside Tesco on Saturday mornings, at our two formal presentations and during our drop-in sessions at the library.

We’re really pleased by the way that people have commented on the plan. There are supportive comments and a few challenging ones too. They are all much appreciated.

Thank you. All of you.

South Cambs is tracking our progress. Click here to see where we are in the process. The next significant event is the submission of our plan, updated to take account of input which we’ve received during this consultation, early in 2019.

If you haven’t yet provided an input please go to the online survey and tell us what you think. It’s at

whatever your opinion … pls complete the survey

2018-10-13 12.23.27There’s a simple survey which goes with the Neighbourhood Plan consultation. It’s being run for two reasons:

1 to capture comments. This is very important and before we move to the next stage we must respond to very comment.

2 to demonstrate engagement. Not everyone will want to comment but we would like to know how successful our consultation has been so if people can use the survey to simply indicate their support (or otherwise) for the Plan that will be a great help.

The survey is at Please note that you do not have to provide any comments, although it’s excellent if you do, just identify yourself  and then give us a yes or no to the final question.

  • Are there policies you wish to comment on?
