There are lots of ways you can find out what’s happening and ask questions about urban growth in and around Cambridge.
North West Cambridge and Cambridge East
For ongoing major developments in North West Cambridge (Eddington and Darwin Green) and Cambridge East (Wing/ Marleigh and land north of Cherry Hinton), there are community forums.
These bring residents, councils and developers together to raise issues and discuss how the developments are moving forward. They are open to everyone and usually meet three times a year. The format tends to involve an informal drop-in session followed by a more formal meeting.
Until recently, if you live on one of the developments at Trumpington Meadows, Glebe Farm, Clay Farm and the Bell School site you could use Southern Fringe Community Forum meetings to raise questions about planning and construction. The last of these took place in June 2019.
The construction stage is nearing completion, with over 3,000 homes now occupied on the Southern Fringe. So the time has come to welcome you from these developments into the regular arrangements for addressing local issues in the South Area of the city.
You are invited to come along to South Area Committee meetings, which serve Cherry Hinton, Queen Edith’s and Trumpington wards. These formal meetings involve the local councillors for these wards. They normally take place four times a year, in January, April, July and October.
The meetings include an opportunity for you to raise local issues during an ‘open forum’ slot.
The next South Area Committee meeting will take place on Monday 9 December.
