I was there – I was the only one there – FDC Full Council Meeting Today.

Disclaimer: These observations are not the ‘official’ minutes of the meeting, these are supplied by Fenland District Council, normally (1) month following the meeting and can be viewed on their website.

I was the only member of the public present at today’s full FDC Council meeting.
The agenda for the meeting was published on this web-blog on 17th July – scroll down to view.
Undoubtedly the main question early on was fielded by Independent Councillor Michelle Tansfield, who asked about the update on the Kings Dyke Crossing.
I dare say most of the FDC Councillors are aware of ‘our’ issues concerning the KD Crossing.
Whittlesey Town Councillor/FDC Councillor-Leader & Cambs CC Councillor Chris Boden gave around a 5 minute answer/update to where the ‘project’ is -today –
Press reports that most of us have seen.

CCC Cllr Steve Count response KD Crossing

At the end of Cllr Boden’s response, he intimated that ALL concerned parties, The Mayor of the Combined Authority, Cambs CC and Fenland District Council were committed in delivering the project.
After the meeting finished I happened to be able to talk with Cambs CC leader Cllr Steve Count and asked him whether he would be prepared to come to Whittlesey and from the ‘top’ tell us the way forward, which is was in agreement – that also the people and electorate of Whittlesey and the Villages deserve to be informed.
This is being worked on.
The video below is a usual not very good sound quality – it is Cllr Boden’s response to Cllr Tansfields question on the KD crossing –
