Barrington Plans Approved

Cemex’s application for 220 houses on the cement factory was passed by South Cambridgeshire District Council’s planning committee yesterday morning, by 6 votes to 5.

There was a very good turnout from local residents. The committee took the arguments about the impact and sustainability of the development seriously, but in the end they gave more weight to the current shortfall in housing in the district, which is putting a lot of pressure on the council.

There is no room for appeal against the decision (except by judicial review, which is unlikely).

Cement Works Decision This Wednesday

It has now been confirmed that the application for 220 houses on Barrington cement works will be decided by the planning committee of South Cambs District Council this coming Wednesday, 3 June at 10am at South Cambridgeshire Hall in Cambourne Business Park. The planning officers are recommending that the committee approves the proposal. They have given a lot of weight to the fact that a brownfield site is being redeveloped and they say that this outweighs all of the negative impacts of the proposal.  The agenda for the 3 June meeting can be found here:

Haslingfield in 1944

Mike Wickham was evacuated to Haslingfield in 1944, and this is some of his recollections of that time…

Aged 10, I was evacuated to Haslingfield during the Summer of 1944 from our home in Hornchurch, Essex, because of the menace of V-1’s and V-2’s. With my Mother and Sister (6) we stayed at 1 Scotts Yard, Haslingfield, which was a 2-up and 2-down cottage with an outside closet (earth or bucket – I cannot remember which) and no mains electricity, gas or water. I remember taking a pail to the village pump daily to get it filled with water. The lady we stayed with was Aunt Annie (King), who was noted for her Apple Pie making – so I was assured by my Dad.

Little Rose Wins Community Pub of the Year

Landlords Neil and Sue with their Award

Landlords Neil and Sue with their Award

The Little Rose Pub has won the Rural Community Pub of the Year Award from the Cambridge and District Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra).

It’s in recognition of what Camra thinks is the way that the pub is rapidly becoming a focus of the village community since Neil and Sue Poole took charge of it in July last year. Camra cited things like the Parents and Todlers group that meets once a week there, Bingo, the Quiz, and wide variety of sports teams as well as special events like Wakes, Live Music and Charity Fundraising Nights as reasons for why the Little Rose has won the award.
