Todays Questions From South Cambridgeshire District Council - Full Council Meeting

Here are the questions Councillors raised during today's Full Council meeting in Cambourne, The full agenda (with reports) is available here (on South Cambs DC website);

15a From Councillor Charles Nightingale
“Could the Leader please inform this Council of any planning applications or licences that have been applied for to carry out Fracking in South Cambridgeshire?

Could he also tell us if this Council will ever support any possible future applications for Fracking or Hydraulic Fracturing in South Cambridgeshire?”

15b From Councillor Ben Shelton
“Would the Portfolio Holder please update Members on any recent property purchases made by the Council?”

15c From Councillor Tumi Hawkins
“Several residents have noted that the marketing information being put out to the public by the Council in relation to the on-going local development plan consultation, is worded in such a way as to imply that the selection of the new settlements, in particular, Bourn Airfield, is a done deal.

As such a lot of them felt that there was no point in giving their response or an opinion as it would not make any difference.

Will the Leader or Planning Policy Portfolio Holder please tell us if this indeed was the intention of the council to mislead the general public about the sites selected and the local plan process, and what the council will do before the consultation ends, to correct this ‘misinformation’?”
