Balfour Beatty (in conjunction with Cambridgeshire County Council) are now in the process of producing designs to streets in the area.

Attached are the street lighting design maps for Quaker close and Ramsey Road.

Quaker Close

Ramsey Road

Residents input to these designs are important and you are encouraged to take time to view the maps. 

In residential areas street lights are being replaced on a one-for-one basis.  In these residential areas some columns will be permanently removed.  They have used their extensive street lighting design experience to make decisions that are likely to have the most positive affect.

You are urged to feedback any comments to your Parish Councillors for them to provide a local view on any decisions that may impact on village.

Please comment by 05 Jun 2014. Work is due to start 13 Jun 2014.
