Cllr Eamonn Dorling gave a brief talk on the benefit of

A robust discussion took place, basically supporting, however it was the conscientious that this initiative should be ‘community led’ as on several previous occasions.
Cllr Dorling is in contact with various organisations.
I am in full support of ‘more’ tree’s and ‘bushes’ and have taken part in several previous projects.
The big concern is ‘where’ to plant, getting permission to ‘plant’ and any future maintenance.
Other Items discussed :- Cllr Mrs Laws gave an update on the for-coming ‘Local Plan’ consultation process and to get as many public to take part – It is important they do so.

News that ‘The Bower’ maintenance concerns/issues, is being resolved, Cllr Mrs Mayor, arranged a meeting with FDC and other agencies, it would now appear the FDC are responsible for a large part of the ‘Walkway’ – however there are other parts which come under Cambs CC and Mid-Level Commissioners.
A ‘Fly-Tipper’ was caught red-handed – and issues on the spot £400 fine.
