Fibre Broadband

Good news – We have met the minimum threshold to move into the next stages of the project, which is the Project Review. This stage, which on average takes approx. 4 weeks, takes various things into consideration such as reviewing build costs, looking at existing infrastructure and traffic management. Once all this is complete, this will be presented to Aviva to release the funds and the next stage of build works can commence.
County Broadband are leaving the offer of free standard connection open for residents that still wish to place pre-orders until connection has gone live. Thanks to all those that have supported the project and getting us this far.

Get Involved in the Cambridge Approaches East West Rail Campaign

The next East West Rail consultation on route alignments in our area has been imminent since the start of January 2021. We are currently told that it will be out before Easter. Now is a good time to step up the campaign for a fair consultation on the northern approach to Cambridge as well as the southern approach.

The EWR action group in The Eversdens is opening up to invite like-minded people from Haslingfield and Harlton to attend (but also any local village). It’s a Zoom meeting on Thursdays at 8pm on this link. All welcome. This group is well connected with other parts of the CA campaign. Through this group you can get involved with various more specialist teams working on the project.
