Q&A Session on Babraham Parish Development H1/b next to Sawston, Wednesday 15 August, 19.00 at Babraham School

There are currently two proposed developments to extend Sawston along Babraham Road, which would fall within the Babraham parish boundary. The architects for one of these, KWA, have arranged for a transport consultant to attend a Q&A session on Wednesday 15th August at 7pm at Babraham Primary School so that they can answer any technical questions as well as give an overview of the transport proposals. KWA are in the process of going through further pre-application discussions with Highways and are expecting their formal response shortly.

We invite you to attend to hear the presentation and take part in this important discussion. The Parish Council is in conversation with many partners to seek improvements to traffic behaviour through the village and this event will be a valuable contribution to those developments.

Please come and make your views known.
