Annual Parish Meeting : Summary

The Annual Parish Meeting was well attended this year, with more than twenty people present – that doesn’t sound a lot, but it’s more than Sawston PC get at their APM! All the various reports were listened to with interest and there were many questions. We learned that, due to cuts, the local police are having to concentrate on catching criminals rather than speeding motorists. This makes the Parish Council’s resolve to achieve more traffic calming in the village even more relevant. There was also much discussion about Babraham Biotechnology’s plans to expand further into the Green Belt. The Parish Council decided last year that it would not support any development in the Green Belt (except for rural exception sites for affordable housing). Unfortunately the PC has no statutory powers so its opinion, though listened to, is ultimately irrelevant.

No formal minutes are taken of annual meetings.
