A local resident has kindly put together a Google map of the locations of East West Rail Environmental surveys known to us.  As I said in my previous post we have not yet been able to get this information from East West Rail or their contractor Ardent. The map is available on this link. Read more

East West Rail Environmental Surveys in Haslingfield

EWR aims to build a railway from Cambourne to Cambridge in the 2020s. Information on the status of this section of the route can be found on their website here. They have selected a search area for the route that includes all of Haslingfield and the area to the north. In terms of possible impact on village life, this is probably the biggest planning issue we have faced in decades. Read more

Village Green – Grass damage from storage of pipes during the Gas works

The  Parish Council have made a complaint to Cambridge County Council Street Works Team regarding the damage caused to the Village Green grass through weeks of storing large yellow piping during the gas works to Broad Lane are being carried out – the grass is completely dead where the pipes have been stored.

The Street Works Inspector has attended site and confirmed that the works team will make good the Village Green before clearing the site.

New/expectant parents

Are you a new/expectant parent, or parent to a baby, and living in Haslingfield or Harlton? It would be great to make friends and be able to support each other, and especially so in the current situation. We may not be able to meet in person for a little while yet, but we can still do a video cuppa (and cake!) and of course be at the end of the phone. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please email Alison for more information: newparents.haslingfield@gmail.com.

Green Bin Collection

The phased starting up of the green waste service began on Monday 4th May. 
Under the phased reintroduction of the green waste service, residents are guaranteed one collection
per month but are encouraged to put the green bins out each time the blue recycle bins are due for
collection, in case crews are able to collect more than the scheduled rounds. Collection days for Haslingfield are 14th May, 10th June & 8th July.
To find out which weeks have a guaranteed collection, residents can check by postcode at:

Water Leak

Anglian Water have just rung to tell me that we have a water leak from between the Village Hall and Porkers Lane. It’s a broken pipe that will take a little while to repair but rest assured it is being dealt with.
