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.

 

a stiff letter to Hexcel about Hinxton

a stiff letter to Hexcel about Hinxton

Really annoying - after the good work done last year with Hexcel to ensure lorries do not get stuck in the narrow lanes at Hinxton - to see some rogue HGVs still trying to access the site via completely inappropriate routes. The consequence is the lorries get stuck and then have to try to reverse, holding up everyone else as well as risking damage to Hinxton's historic fabric.

The work last year involving the county council, the parish councils of Duxford and Hinxton, and Hexcel too, saw Hexcel agree to direct lorries via Hunts Road, amending the paperwork going out to the suppliers. Also signs in the site direct heavy goods traffic via the A505. Ive written to the directors that I met last year to ask them to remedy the situation soonest. 

Thanks to Mark Alexander from Hinxton for sending me this pic.
