Current Affairs:
These are the main matters that currently affect us:

Proposed housing development on Sand Road
Catesby Property Group's  proposals can be viewed on their website 

Speedwatch volunteers needed!
The latest review of speedwatch data shows a 23% reduction of overall speeding during morning Speedwatch sessions by Audley Close, 
from 41% to 18% 
Just two hours of your time per month could make the difference between a viable team of three volunteers, or no session. Do please join us if you can.
The next training session will be held on Saturday 3rd June, 
10:00 a.m. at Cambourne Police station

Great Gransden Matters

The Parish Council's official forum is a great way to make sure you never miss an important development

 Great Gransden Matters is intended to improve village communication in all ways, both for residents to discuss significant issues, and for your Council to inform the public. Any matters raised on the forum are discussed at the next meeting, and responses are posted soon after. There are an increasing number of matters where the Parish Council would very much like to keep residents as up to date as possible.  Change may take some time to achieve, but please be assured we are committed to doing our very best for Great Gransden.

It is of vital importance that as many people write to express their views as possible. 
This is the only way we can hope to protect our villages from the proposed development.
Ideally every adult in a household should write separately.
Please click here to view or download a summary sheet of points in favour of the orange route, to assist with compiling your letter.
Please share this with as many people as possible.
Paper copies of the sheet will be available in the village shop.

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.
