Have your say on Bottisham Masterplan



Residents in Bottisham in East Cambridgeshire are set to have their say on the future of their village.

A draft Masterplan for the Bell Road area of Bottisham has been created through the joint efforts of a Liaison Group which consisted of the local Parish Council, the District Council, the landowner and developer.

The plans, they have developed, look to marry the competing demands of building new homes and developing a sustainable community all in a historic context of a village which has buildings stretching back to the 16th Century.

All residents are invited to attend a public exhibition on Wednesday 25 September from 3pm - 8pm at Royal British Legion, 31 Downing Close, Bottisham to see the plans and talk to the Liaison Group about the draft plans.

Councillor Peter Moakes, Chairman of Development and Transport Committee at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: "A huge amount of work has gone into developing the draft Masterplan in the Bell Road area of Bottisham. It has been a collaborative effort with all those involved working together for the benefit of the village and its 2,000 residents. The people who live in the village will now be able to view the plans and ideas and have their say.

"Homes in Bottisham are in huge demand but there is a very limited supply especially for local residents, so we believe the proposed new 50 homes will make a real difference in the village. The consultation will begin on Wednesday 25 September until Wednesday 23 October and we look forward to hearing what people think."
