Focus on Buckden, March 2017


Our latest newsletter gives a summary of how the recent budget was set in Cambridgeshire County Council. Despite the best efforts of Liberal Democrats to protect services, Conservatives, UKIP and Independents pushed through a 2% increase for Adult Social Care only. Sadly, this limited increase will cause real problems for some of the most vulnerable in our society.

The other key item in the newsletter is the feedback from the "Life in Buckden" survey. The overall impression is that Buckden is a good place to live, and medical facilities and education opportunities are appreciated, but there are concerns about traffic and mixed views on housing development in the area.

There is also an introduction to Rod Cantrill, the Lib Dem candidate for the Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, plus a reminder to all that Council and Mayoral elections are on 4th May. If you are likely to be away, you can apply for a postal vote, so don't forget.
