John Trapp and Charlotte Cane
Your Candidates for the Bottisham ward
Speculative and inappropriate developments threaten our villages now that the Conservatives have made such a mess of the Local Plan. Developers will have a field day.
Yet we badly need more affordable homes so that young people can find somewhere to live nearer than Wisbech or Peterborough. What’s so infuriating is that the Local Plan shambles will enable developers to ignore these concerns, building expensive houses in unsuitable places.
And our villages desperately need better public transport to relieve the strain on the Quy roundabout where delays make the journey to school or work take a ridiculous time.
The Conservatives running East Cambs have made these problems worse, not better.
We badly need a clear out at the council.
