Current Affairs:
These are the main matters that are currently under consideration:

A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet Road Improvement Scheme

Highways England is considering options to improve the A428 between the A1 Black Cat Junction and the Caxton Gibbet Junction.  Great Gransden Parish Council invites residents to a public meeting at 7.30pm on Wednesday 14th September at Barnabas Oley School Hall.  

The Projects Team will be present and this is your opportunity to find out more information about the options – a route to the north of the existing section of the A428, alternatively a route to the south or dualling of the existing road.  It will also be the Parish Council’s opportunity to canvass local opinion during this early stage in identifying potential options.  Come along to the meeting to find out more and share your views.  

Devolution Consultation
The County would like to learn of your views on a possible devolution deal for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. They have created a survey to inform Council debates later this year. Councils have proposed a deal to Government that could see more decisions made in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough by a new organisation called a Combined Authority, which would involve enstating 
a new elected Mayor for the region.

"Twenty's Plenty"

The Parish Council is hoping to introduce a 20mph speed limit in Middle Street between the roundabout and the crossroads at Fox Street.

 Before going ahead, the county Highways Policy and Regulation team will be holding a formal consultation period between 

18th August and 8th September.

Ash tree disease threatens to destroy 30 million trees in the UK. There have been reports of cases as close as Gamlingay. Do, please take pre-emptive action if you can to attenuate the catastrophic effects on our country and our village, by planting replacement trees such as Field Maple, Oak, Wild Service, Small-leaved Lime, Birch, Alder or Wild Cherry.
