Updates on last month’s Parish Council items
Mobile Warden - The cost will be £5 per week, for which you will get a call every day and a visit every week.
Speeding - There was a meeting between Milton, Waterbeach and Landbeach Parish Councils and the Police on 23 February. The PC are looking into changed speed limits and traffic calming measures.
From last month
A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement Scheme is now underway. See newsletter.
Affordable Housing - There is a need to identify a blank area in the village that could be used for affordable housing. Please contact the Clerk with suggestions for venues, or if you know of elderly or younger members of the parish who would be interested in affordable houses.
Boundaries - Please could residents keep boundaries with the footpath tidy, with no overgrown bushes, leaves etc, which might make it difficult for prams, wheelchairs and scooters to get through. Please don’t park cars on the pavement, as this obstructs pedestrians, wheelchairs and pushchairs.
Bus Shelter - As you know, the bus shelter was damaged by a car; this was made safe as quickly as possible. It has now been demolished and will be rebuilt in the near future.
Dog fouling - Please pick up dog foul and please do not take dogs on Recreation Ground. Thank you for your consideration for others.
Landbeach Helpline - contact the Clerk for contact details for groups/agencies who may be able to help.
Mobile Warden -
The new post of Mobile Warden for Landbeach and Waterbeach will be trained by Age UK and will assist frail, elderly residents.
District Cllr Ingrid Tregoing informs us that funding has been agreed for this. Landbeach would pay up to £1,000 a year (probably considerably less pro-rata'd amount in conjunction with Waterbeach) towards the scheme. This would be a commitment of 3 years with a minimum of 2.
The Parish Council would like to hear from, or of, Landbeach people who might appreciate visits (e.g. once a week). For more information, or to register an interest, please contact the Parish Clerk. Please see back page for more information. The cost to the client would be £5 per week, for which you would get a call every day and a visit every week.
Security - Please be vigilant, in dark nights, to lock doors and cars.
Stagecoach - People can contact the Parish Clerk if they have any complaints about Stagecoach.
Speeding - Urban and Civic have carried out a survey on speeding in the village and have produced some figures, but we have asked for more. They showed that 84% of the south-bound morning peak traffic flow is from Cottenham. Average speed on Waterbeach Road is 39-40mph and the High Street is 31-32mph. This is a broad summation over 24 hours on weekdays.
