News and Updates
Many Bourn residents will recall assurances given in 1996 from South Cambridgeshire District Council that the new Cambourne development would not be permitted to increase traffic into Bourn.
A minute from the Planning Committee meeting of 24 April 1996 records as "Resolved that there should be no emergency vehicle and bus link between the new village [Cambourne] and The Broadway". Specifically, we were told that "such access will never be allowed".
With additional bus traffic from Cambourne via this new link, as well as additional new traffic if Bourn Airfield goes ahead, traffic in Bourn village could be set to become a major problem.
If we value our beautiful and historic village we must say no to this constant encroachment.
