You found my new blog - welcome!

I'm County Councillor for 12 villages in the south of Cambridgeshire - Duxford, Fowlmere, Foxton, Great  & Little Chishill, Heydon, Hinxton, Ickleton, Pampisford, Shepreth, Whittlesford and Thriplow.

I also represent the residents of Whittlesford, Heathfield and Thriplow on South Cambridgeshire District Council. Since 2016 I have been leader of South Cambs District Council.

Fiat Lux - or maybe not - Duxford gets poor service. from Balfour Beatty .

Despite months and months of chasing up, Balfour Beatty are still .not able to investigate if there is. power in. an old streetlight post in Duxford. Locally, . people have complained to say it is dangerous to children because the post .may still have a live electric current through it.

The district council has chased up Balfour Beatty, who have the contract for re.pairs to street lighting, but I am told BB's quotation service has been closed for a while and is now starting up again, and so cannot even give anyone an indication of how much the work would cost or when it could be done. .

If a company that claims to be an international provider of sustainable infrastructure solutions cannot send a team out to check the .safety of a streetlight some six months after being chased up - and possibly even longer - then there is something really wrong. I will get to the bottom of this tomorrow. 

Fall, leaves, fall. At Hinxton. .
