Latest Newsletter hits the streets

Urban&Civic have published the latest edition of their community newsletter, updating local residents about progress on site and the facilities opening up for local people.

As well as including features on the Cadets use of the site for training, and the latest yoga classes, the newsletter also reports on May’s running festival – organised by the Waterbeach Toddler Playgroup – and the “Summer at the Beach” Open studios exhibitions held in July.

This edition promotes the reopened Waterbeach Military Heritage Museum – which is located in its former home next to the Barracks entrance – and pays tribute to Oliver Merrington, who worked so hard to secure the Museum and open it back up for the village, veterans and their families.

Urban&Civic also provide an update on the planning process, setting out in summary the key principles which were shared in the recent Drop-in Sessions, as well as promoting the next consultation events which will be held on:

  • Thursday 29 September, 3-8pm
  • Friday 30 September, 3-8pm
  • Saturday 1 October, 10am-4pm

Alongside this, the newsletter updates people on the Environmental Impact Assessment Scoping Report, which will form part of the future applications’ Impact Assessment, as well as feedback from Cambridgeshire’s Quality Panel Review of the Development Framework evolved to date.

Rebecca Britton, Communities and Partnerships for Urban&Civic, said:

“It’s been a busy few months for the team, as we progress the evolving designs for developing the former barracks and airfield. It’s also great that the site is getting busier with local groups using the facilities and space. We know the value of keeping people updated as things progress, and we hope the newsletter gives a good flavour of the range of projects and partners we are working with as well as ensuring people are engaged at every stage of the planning process. We are always happy to meet up and talk in more detail about any of the aspects featured in this edition, and give people a look around the site.”
