Parish Council Elections 

Elections will be held in May 2018 for all 9 members of the Parish Council. Some of the existing councillors are not standing for re-election, so there will be some spaces on the council.

To find out more, please come along to an open meeting on Monday March 12th from 7pm until 8pm in the Village Hall. You'll be able to speak to existing councillors about the roles and responsibilites, and you can also pick up an application form.

 

Proposed Grain Store 

Thriplow Farms have submitted a planning application for a 10,000-tonne grain store on Fowlmere Road, to replace the existing store in Thriplow. The planning committee of Foxton Parish Council have serious traffic safety and lansdcape issues with the proposed site on Fowlmere Road, and would prefer an alternative site on Newton Road (as originally proposed by Thriplow Farms). For more details, please see the notes from a planning committee meeting on 23rd March, which can be found here.

This application was discussed at the planning committee meeting on Tuesday 31st October, and the Parish Council have recommended refusal of the application. 

This application is currently scheduled to be discussed at the March 7th meeting of the SCDC planning committee; anyone can apply to speak at the meeting, and details of this can be found here.

 

Conservation Area Appraisal

After work done by the Parish Council in conjunction with SCDC, the proposed update to the Conservation Area is now subject to a public consultation. This runs until 9th February, and you can find out more details and respond to the consultation here.

Following completion of examination hearings into the Cambridge Local Plan and South Cambridgeshire Local Plan in July 2017, the plans have reached the next key stage in the process.  The Inspectors have now asked that consultation be carried out on the Main Modifications to the plan - see here. The consultation runs until Friday 16th February, and you can find out more details here.
