Hinxton makes real the infrastructure deficit issue

Hinxton makes real the infrastructure deficit issue

Very pleased to see that BBC Regional News for the East this evening covered the issue causing much concern in small but perfectly formed Hinxton. The news reporter interviewed parish chair Willie Brown about his concerns on the impact north of the border of a proposed development at Great Chesterford just a few hundred metres south of the county border in Essex. The news item reported that at the moment all the options are paused, according to Uttlesford District Council.

The scale of the proposals means that there will be a major settlement with a high degree of impact on the roads and infrastructure in Cambridge.

Sometimes you need a simple story like this to bring home and explain the issue of infrastructure deficit that we face in Cambridgeshire and south Cambridgeshire in particular.
