The May meeting followed the published agenda. Amongst routine business, the following topics were reviewed:
Madingley Road Cycle Path: This project progresses and a recent survey indicated over one hundred potential users. Negotiations with local landowners continue.
Callow Brook: the drainage problem is being addressed.
Telephone: the two BT boxes are under repair.
Finance: the audited Statement of Accounts was approved and adopted. Disbursements included £513.90 for Parish Council insurance and £258.75 for grass cutting.
Public House: various possibilities are being explored and the owners have applied for a new licence.
Housing Needs: the Rural Housing Enabler from ACRE, Miss Catherine Shilton, will be addressing the Parish Council at its next meeting on June 16th.
Village web site: this has been updated by Mr L.Waters. Its size and content will be discussed at the next Parish Council Meeting.
Village Plan: the Parish Council was suspended for a short period to allow an open discussion of the final version of the Village Plan. The discussion was positive and well focussed and on resumption of the Parish Council meeting the final version of the Village Plan was formally adopted. The Village Plan will now be forwarded to Cambridgeshire ACRE for consideration and evaluation. Developments will be reported in due course.
Future Agenda Items: the community is reminded that Parish Council agenda items should be sent to the Parish Clerk in writing at least 14 days prior to the Parish Council meeting and that village organisations are invited to forward short reports on their activities to Council meetings
