Paper caddy recycling changes from 11 December
From Monday 11 December, residents will no longer need to use paper caddies as part of their recycling routines. Instead, used paper should be placed directly into blue wheelie bins. It will still be recycled. South Cambs DC are running an upcycle competition for the most imaginative re-use of a caddy.
More information can be found about the changes, and the competition, by visiting www.scambs.gov.uk.

Update on possible new Park & Ride in Hauxton
On 22 November, Greater Cambridge Partnership (formerly City Deal) approved a plan to develop a business case for a 2000 space Park and Ride in the field north west of Junction 11 – off the A10. This is to cater for the expansion of the Biomedical Campus around Addenbrookes.
As you may have seen from reports in the Cambridge News, Jane Ward, Hauxton Parish Council Chair, and Janet Lockwood, our South Cambs District Councillor, posed questions at the GCP Board meeting raising concerns, and together with Harston, have been lobbying alternatives for some time. Chris Tunstall, Transport Director for GCP, said the board would receive a report in February on other transport options including rail, but the Board decided to press ahead with looking at the Hauxton site.
Hauxton Parish Council will now work with neighbouring parish councils to try and ensure local residents views are taken into account.
Progress on BPHA ‘extracare’ homes
Construction is progressing well with the core of the building having reached the first floor. BPHA currently anticipates the building to be complete and ready for occupation from April 2019 onwards.
The building comprises 70 one and two bedroom apartments for rent and shared ownership sale. Marketing for the shared ownership properties will commence in Summer 2018 and BPHA have already received enquiries in response to the hoarding around the site. Fore more information click here.
Following the withdrawal of the planning application for the village hall in a central position on the Recreation ground, the Parish Council has submitted a revised planning application, with the village hall now in the location suggested by the planners last year.
