Mayoral Candidates Event *** UPDATED ***

Eversden Parish Council, supported by Cambridge Approaches, have organised a Q&A session with three of the candidates for the Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. These are James Palmer (Con), Aiden Van de Weyer (LibDem) and Nik Johnson (Lab.). This will be on the subject of the approach of the EWR to Cambridge and will start at 7pm on the 7th April 2021. The details of this meeting can be found on on The Eversdens village web site here.

Fair Consultation on a Northern Approach Webinar

We had an opportunity to present our case to the rail minister Chris Heaton-Harris on the 23rd February 2021. This meeting was convened by our local MP Anthony Browne and we were supported by CBRR, the BCN Wildlife Trust, CPRE and Cambridge Past, Present and Future. Our message was to request a fair consultation on a northern approach to Cambridge. We are advised that the response from the minister will arrive shortly.

William Harrold and Sebastian Kindersley replayed the presentation to local people on the 9th March 2021 and a recording of that webinar can be found here along with a Q&A session afterwards.

David Revell and Sebastian Kindersley will make the same presentation again on the 23rd March 2021 and you can register for that meeting here.

Cambridge to Newmarket Webinar

On the 16th March 2021 Steve Edmondson, William Armes and William Harrold from CA presented to people affected by the East West Railway on the Cambridge to Newmarket corridor. Our message was to alert people to the effect of the East West Railway both in Cambridge and to the east, especially the impact of freight traffic. We also pointed out that, with the route proposed by CBRR, then these problems can be significantly alleviated either at the time the railway is built or as a subsequent upgrade. This could be achieved for example with a rail chord to the south of Ely.

A recording of that webinar can be found here.

In 2006 there were apparently 5 black poplars near the Lord’s Bridge Observatory . If these are still there they might be impacted by the proposed EWR development. Black poplars are among the most endangered British trees . I cannot check them out, but someone knowledgable about trees might find it worthwhile to do so.
