Great Shelford Parish Council


Parish Council New Year message from Chairman Malcolm Watson

I hope you all had a good Christmas and wish you all the best for 2020.

There are certainly a large number of potential developments that are happening near our village and I would urge you that when you have the opportunity to comment on these potential developments that you do so.

In the last few months alone we have had plans for a new transport system from a new Park and Ride site near Four Went Ways going to the new Cambridge South railway station and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus crossing Haverhill Road in Stapleford and Hinton Way and Granhams Road in our village; a proposal to put solar panels over the parking spaces on the Babraham Road Park and Ride site; a major development by the Wellcome Genome Campus on a new site near to their existing site and being bounded by  the A11, the A505 and the A1301: a retirement village in Stapleford; a care home in Station Road and the Parochial Charities proposing to build some new affordable homes near to their existing development at More’s Meadow. All of this is to ignore the potential relocation of Marshalls from Cambridge Airport to Duxford Airfield.

As you can see there is potentially a great amount going on around our village all of which will have an impact on the infrastructure of the village.

In the last few years the level of services being directly provided by the County Council and the District Council have been cut back and the Parish Council are now able to put bids in for projects this is particularly true with roads and traffic issues and the Highways committee have been able to create the pedestrian crossing in Woollards Lane, speed reduction zones, yellow lining and some resurfacing work to the roads.

The Parish Council has also repositioned the utility services so that the Feast and other users of the Recreation Ground are able to use the services without having extreme lengths of cables and pipes and the attendant Health and Safety issues – although the project did overrun a little as we found asbestos in the ground!

In the last 12 months we have supported community events such as the” Big Lunch”, the fireworks at Shelford Rugby Club and the Christmas Lights Switch On.

We have also helped to fund the Library Summer Reading Challenge, the Shoppers Bus, the Great Shelford Mobile Wardens Scheme and Relate. The Shelford and Stapleford Youth Initiative have had increased support from the Parish Council and have now permanently moved into the old Football Club Room upstairs in the Memorial Hall.

So what are our plans for 2020? Basically more of the same but we will be starting to implement the first stages of the Playscape Design Scheme.


The Parish Council meets every third Wednesday of the month in the pavilion on the recreation ground at 7.30. Please do come along and let us hear your views.
