Monday 10th february,7-9pm local plan eco-input.

Concerned about what’s happening all around us here in the Cambridge area? About the impacts of growth and development on climate change, wildlife, sustainable transport? About getting more eco-homes in the right places at affordable prices for our younger and older people? The two Councils (SCDC and Cambridge City) are collaborating in making a joint Local Plan - and are at the very first stage, wanting to get input from everyone young and old, about what really matters. They are urging us to get involved now in creating “the most important document most people have never heard of”
