Colne Parish Council has arranged with Cllr. Criswell to attend an informal briefing session on Rural Exception Site policy. Mr Andy Moffat, Head of Development at HDC will be in attendance to explain HDC policy relating to Rural Exception Sites and answer questions that residents may have. Although this session relates mainly to the Land at Bluntisham Road Mr Moffat will no doubt be happy, if time permits, to answer other planning related questions.
Any interested residents are invited to attend
To be held at Colne Community Hall on Tuesday 11th November at 7.30pm
Unfortunately Frank Boddy will not be able to attend to give a cooking demonstration at our meeting in October as planned, but we hope to be able to substitute with something similar.
Check out our facebook page for details.
Cambridgeshire County Council's consultation on the Household Recycling Service started on Friday 15th August and will run for a six-week period until Friday 26th September. During this period they are encouraging residents to complete the online questionaire which can be found at http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/recyclingcentreservice
This online consultation focuses on residents' current use of the service and their thoughts on the options being considered - which range from closing sites; transferring them to charitable or voluntary organisations; reduction in hours and days of operation across all sites; charging for certain DIY waste streams; and limiting the use of sites to larger vehicles to deter trade waste use. This online consultation will run alongside surveys being undertaken by AmeyCespa at all of the nine household recycling centres(HRCs) within Cambridgeshire (Alconbury, Bluntisham, Milton, March, St Noets, Thriplow, Whittlesey, Wisbech and Witchford) to ensure users of the service can have their say.
Work is due to commence, on Monday 18th August, to carry out maintenance to the footways on Colne Road, Somersham and Somersham Road, Colne (B1050). This refers to the footway on the eastern side, south of Chatteris Road, Somersham and Deadman's Hill.
The work will involve siding out, excavation and reconstruction of the footways and replacement of some lengths of kerbing. This will be carried out using temporary traffic signals, not necessitating closure of the B1050 at any time, between the hours of 9.30 - 15.30 to minimise disruption to traffic flow.
Subject: A1123 Earith Closure
Please be aware that the A1123 at Earith bridge will be closed on the 17th July between the hours of 9.30am and 3.30pm. The diversion route is the A1123, A1421, A142, A141 and vice versa.
The closure is in place to facilitate the installation of gates to be used to close the road during a flood event.
The large hall is now available for hire on Tuesday Evenings. Contact Tony on 841735 of details.

The contractors will endeavour to complete the work at Bridge Road before Easter, rather than 22/23 April as programmed, but this will be dependent on weather and the agreed extent of works on Colne Road.
The relevant sections of road will be closed throughout the works, with a diversion route being signed in advance and roads being reopened when works are not in progress. Access will be maintained for occupiers at all times.
Unfortunately our speakers for March, The Nutty Tarts, were unable to make our meeting last night so our committee jumped into the void and gave members and visitors alike a great evening.
Firstly we had a Beer Bread Demonstration and tasting session....with recipe details available to take away. For anyone who missed these or could not be there on the night, the details are on our facebook page. (TheWIBluntishamandColne)
We then got the chance to demonstrate our cupcake decorating skills with cupcakes baked by two committee members. ...and just to keep everyone busy throughout, there was a picture quiz about cakes on each table...needless to say most people got most of them correct....it is the WI after all...!
A good fun evening was had by all......
Join us next time for a talk by Amy Lewis on 'The Wildlife Trust'
