Planning Background

Development of retirement care village in class C2 comprising housing with care, communal health, wellbeing and leisure facilities; and C3 affordable dwellings (compromising up to 30% on-site provision), public open space, play provision, landscaping, car parking, access and associated development.

As you are aware the original planning application was refused by East Cambs District Council (ECDC), and was again refused on a subsequent appeal. Both ECDC and Bottisham Parish Council and the Bottisham Medical Practice maintained their position in strongly opposing this development on the Green Belt and have submitted documentation to support this opposition. Many residents have supported this with adding their reasons for objecting and we, along with the Medical Practice, would like to thank you for your support and commitment to helping maintaining our village with Green Belt land.

Police - Have your say

Survey Online

January 2022
Police Survey

Police & Crime Commissioner, Darryl Preston is asking Cambridgeshire and Peterborough residents to give their views on his proposed increase to the policing part of council tax in a short survey.

The survey will be open until 5pm on 20th January 2022.

https://www.cambridgeshire-pcc.gov.uk/get-involved/consultations-surveys/

For the 2022/23 financial year, as with others, it is important to clarify that police funding comes from two main sources: 56% from central government (excluding specific grants) and the remainder from the policing part of council tax.

Police and Crime Commissioner, Darryl Preston is keen to understand your views on crime and policing through the below short, online survey which I urge you to complete.

From the many conversations had with people across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough that many of you value the policing service you receive.

Police and Crime Commissioner, Darryl Prestonalso states, however, that household costs are rising across the board. Unfortunately. it is no different for policing. Inflation pressures and national insurance increases mean that there are considerable increasing costs for policing which must be met to enable the Constabulary to continue to provide a good service.

Whilst the additional 82 officers recruited through the government’s national ‘Uplift’ programme will bring officer numbers in the county to record levels – 1,714 by March 2023, these officers (and those who have recently joined) need support, supervision and training before they are fully up to speed and working within our communities.

Police and Crime Commissioner, Darryl Preston proposal is to increase it by £10 per year (based on a Band D property) will enable the Chief Constable to invest in a number of areas which are detailed here.

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey – your views will help inform my final decision on how much to raise the policing part of council tax.

The survey closes at 17:00 on Thursday 20th January, 2022.
