Notice of Weed Spraying on the Recreation Ground

Selective weed spraying will be carried out on the recreation ground during the first week of July 2019 by SP Landscapes. The exact date of the work is weather dependent.

SP Landscapes will be using a combination of 2 selective weed killers. These are MPCA (AGRITOX 50) AND 2 4 D (Depitox).  Both these weed killers are herbicides.

There could be a ‘fishy’ smell (amine) while the work is done, but this will soon disperse.

There is no danger to people or animals.

Communities urged to have their say on Cambridge-Oxford rail link 

Foxton Parish Council have responded to the East West Rail current proposals for the rail route from Bedford to Cambridge. The Parish Council supports the 2 northern routes over the 3 southern routes but is in favour of the CamBedRailRoad proposal, details of which can be found at http://www.cambedrailroad.org/.

The response of the Meldreth, Shepreth and Foxton Community Rail Partnership and Rail User Group can be seen here.

Foxton Parish Council's response can be seen here.

This is not a statutory consultation and there will be much more information in the coming months, but it is important that Foxton gets its view across at the start.

Some of the 5 proposed routes for a new Bedford to Cambridge railway line across South Cambridgeshire include Foxton within their hatched areas of search or lie very close to it.  

Route options A,C, D can be found here.

Route options B, E can be found here.

CamBedRailRoad (CBRR) believe that none of the five proposed Route Options are suitable and have put forward an alternative proposal for a northern route that would serve planned new developments and areas of population growth and join the existing network north of Cambridge.
