Update from Great Boughton Conservatives

New A41 Speed Limit

In response to many residents concerns, Councillor Pamela Hall campaigned for the A41 to be used as a pilot scheme for local people being able to decide local speed limits. With the support of the parish council the A41 is now 50mph which will make it safer for those trying to cross the road. Councillors Keith Board and Pamela Hall are also campaigning for additional crossings to be implemented to help school children cross to Christleton and Guilden Sutton.

Local Funding Support

Later this year Pamela and Keith will hold an event for local groups to request funding for schemes which support local people becoming more active and involved in our community and with each other. Further information will be published but if you are interested in taking part in the event please contact Keith or Pamela. Last time awards were given to local football and netball teams, schools and older peoples groups with the event providing a great opportunity for the groups to share ideas and work together.

Planning Matters

Whilst the Great Boughton greenbelt is protected from development, there are still many requests for large scale new building on brownfield sites. Keith and Pamela will continue to work with residents and local groups when these applications are submitted and are delighted that thanks to the dedication of the Centurion Community Action Group the recent care home application was refused. We are currently supporting local residents in Heath Lane against another large care home proposed in this area served by narrow roads.

Sandy Lane Water Park

With the new toilet facilities almost complete, Keith and Pamela are now working on the next steps to improve the area and the car park for residents as well as visitors. As soon was we have some plans we will arrange to discuss them with local residents
