The pandemic remains at the forefront of everyone’s mind, but I’m pleased that we’re now charting the course away from the difficulties of the last year. The vaccination programme continues apace in South Cambridgeshire, thanks to the enormous efforts of our NHS staff and volunteers. We now have the government’s roadmap to help schools, businesses, and families to plan for the future.
Scroll down to find out what I’ve been focusing on over the last month, including:
Making the case for an upgraded Girton Interchange.
Pushing Thakeham to drop their proposed 25,000 home scheme.
Holding meetings with ministers and campaign groups to push for a full consultation on a northern route for East-West Rail.
Bringing together industry leaders to promote negative carbon emissions standards.
Campaigning for South Cambridgeshire to be classed as water-stressed to help save our chalk streams.
Having met with the Rail Minister, I am supporting the local case for a full and open consultation process on a Northern Route option. Find out more here
My inaugural South Cambridgeshire Life Sciences Forum allowed local life science businesses direct access to top Government policy makers. Find out more here
Last week I met with the CEO of Thakeham and asked him to drop his proposals and to confirm there was no route to bypass the planning process. Find out more here
Planning & Development
My South Cambridgeshire Development survey is now closed. I’m pleased to say we received almost 3,000 responses, and I want to thank everyone who wrote in. More on next steps here
“This is a Budget for rescue, a Budget for recovery and a Budget for repair. As a Budget for rescue, it is absolutely right that the Chancellor has continued support for people and businesses until the pandemic is well and truly over. His actions have saved 1.8 million jobs, probably more than any other Chancellor in history”
This is all a good combination of support, prudence, and growth, and I fully support it.
