As you are aware, the Co-op intend moving to new premises on the corner of Granhams Road later in the year. This has caused some, largely adverse, comment from a number of residents.
The planning authorities (South Cambs and the Parish Council) will consider the application on the basis of issues such as traffic, highway safety, parking and noise. Any concerns residents have about the store moving, such as lack of convenience or distance from the centre of the village, are not something a planning committee can consider and need to be discussed directly with the Co-op management.
We are always anxious to hear residents’ views and have therefore set up a public meeting at 1900 on Tuesday 20 February in the Memorial Hall. The Co-op has been invited to send a representative, but has declined to do so.
