Letter-PicklesRe; The proposed development at Greenacres...


In response to a letter I sent to our MP, the Rt Hon. Andrew Lansley, some months ago, I have today received a reply with a letter from the Rt Hon. Eric Pickles MP, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. It makes interesting reading.

No doubt by now most Duxford residents will have received an invitation through the post about the 'Consutation Event' organised by Countryside - the prospective developers of the land to the north of Greenacres.


The event is to take place between 5.00pm and 7.30pm at Duxford Primary School, although this wil make it difficult for those who work outside Duxford to attend.


The developers say they want to know your thoughts on the proposed development, so here's a question...

Have you spotted the difference between Countryside's first leaflet and this current one?

Here a pictorial clue......

I wonder where the dead-end road on the recent graphic will utimately lead to?
