C2C Busway – Independent Audit

Dear residents,

For information, Mr Phil Swann (Director Shared Intelligence) has been commissioned by the Greater Cambridge Partnership to manage an independent audit of the project.

His first step is to commission an independent transport expert to carry out the review. The expert’s first task will be to prepare a statement of the key constraints and assumptions which underpin the selection of the preferred route. He will publish the statement together with an invitation to local representative groups to submit representations to the audit on the constraints and assumptions.

In the meantime if local representative groups wish to ensure that previously submitted evidence is drawn to the attention of the transport expert, then please let Mr Swann know.

Mr Phil Swann can be contacted via e-mail at C2Caudit@sharedintelligence.net

For info: Voluntary groups vaccination information

Dear residents,
Please see information below pertaining to priority groups for vaccinations:

The NHS has now opened up access to the COVID vaccine to staff and volunteers from community groups currently directly working or having contact with people in the priority groups outlined here:
Priority Groups for Vaccination

  • those involved in the direct supply of food and other goods
  • those supporting older people and those with long term health issues
  • those supporting vulnerable children and young people
  • volunteer drivers involved in transporting people to vaccine appointments

We are working with the NHS on the identifying community groups to receive the COVID vaccine and will be your point of contact, if you believe your staff and/or volunteers meet the eligibility criteria please confirm and we will send you details of how to book appointments.

At this point there is no restriction on numbers of vaccinations available, with plenty of appointments available this week, so we urge you to respond immediately.

If you fit within the above, please contact the Parish Council through the Clerk.
