Why are we working together?
- The boundary between us is indistinct in many places
- We share many services and sit within a common landscape
- We face the same external development pressures due to our proximity to Cambridge, Addenbrooke’s and the Biomedical Campus
- It’s more time and cost efficient to work together
Does that mean there are plans to merge the two villages?
Our villages have their own distinct personalities and character and it’s important to acknowledge that.
But it does make sense to share the work. Neighbourhood Plans take a lot of effort to produce and require lots of consultation and engagement with the local community.
The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has parish councillors and residents from both villages.
