Putting Communities First
TRANSPORT & GREEN ISSUE
Public Transport, Safety and Green. Your Labour team reports
Labour Listens. Before
lockdown we asked people
about the number 11 bus route.
We held drop-ins at Burwell,
Swaffham Prior, Bottisham and
Reach. You told us that
➡People lose job offers because
shift and evening working is
➡No evening, Sunday or Bank
Holiday service means people
➡16–18 year olds in further
education or training have to
leave Burwell by 0715.
➡Students arrive late and miss
lessons. They have to leave
before after-school activities.
➡Up to three hours per day on
buses just go get to class.
Students give up or parents
drive them in.
“Our bus service isn’t
acceptable. We need a
proper alternative to
cars”. Liz Swift,
Labour for Burwell.
Labour Speaks Up.
Councillor Rebecca Denness,
Labour for Ely South wants
action on flooding.
“I’m receiving lots of complaints
about blocked drains. As well as
pushing for policies to stop
climate change, I want to see clear
flood management. It’s time for
Labour Cares. Road Safety on
the A10 Ely to Milton is a major
problem. It will take more than
repainting a few white lines.
“I want to see
junctions with new
traffic lights. Raised
cycle lanes and
footpaths. As a County Councillor
I will demand action” James Bull,
Labour for Milton & Waterbeach.
Labour Acts. The Histon &
Impington team is using Covidsecure
walks for a Safety
We’re on a mission to spot and
report safety matters around our
villages. 40 issues logged so far.
➡Uneven footpaths and potholes
➡Road markings worn away.
➡Slip hazards from rotting leaves.
➡Flooding from blocked drains.
Just some of the many streets
where we’ve reported issues
Labour Asks. How do you
double nature by building 4500
houses over green fields?
The Liberal Democrats on South
Cambs Planning Committee
recently voted to build over
Greenfield at Waterbeach. This is
on top of the 6500 homes coming
to the former barracks.
Do they know about the South
Cambs Lib Dems who claim to be
Peaceful fields by Waterbeach.
Lib Dems want to build here
We support sustainable building
especially bringing brown field
sites back into use. But is there
really no alternative to concreting
over green fields?
The outline plans that South
Cambs approved cut 10% off the
normal affordable housing
We’re also worried that this is an
area prone to flooding.
We say: time for a rethink.

£4m Covid recovery budget rejected by Tories and Lib Dems
Labour’s proposed Council Tax is the same as the Tories but
spent far better. Labour is focusing on Covid recovery and
communities are at the heart. Tories and Lib Dems voted our
Covid recovery plan down. Our plan:
Make sure kids aren’t left behind after lockdown.
Community grants to charities. The Tories cut this by 70%.
Support local businesses.
Help families to have a basic standard of living. Make sure all
Council staff are paid at least the Real Living Wage.
Long term investment in Adult Social Care unlike the other parties.
Green initiatives and enabling every primary school pupil to learn to
cycle safety through the popular Bikeability scheme.
Elisa Meschini, Labour County Leader says “Our plan contrasts with
the Tories and Lib Dems who want a lot of money for Highways. At this
time of Covid crisis communities should be top priority”.
Councillor Elisa Meschini:
top priority to communities
Dr Nik’s Transport Plan for Cambridgeshire & Peterborough
Dr Nik Johnson is your Labour candidate for Mayor. Everything he does is based on the three Cs of
Compassion, Co-operation and Community.
I want to see greener, integrated
and affordable transport. We need
better links that end feelings of
My first act as Mayor will be to
assess what we need—and what
we don’t. I won’t over-promise
and under-deliver. My guiding
Dr Nik for Mayor
Ensure the whole area benefits by re-branding to
the “Oxford to CambridgeSHIRE corridor.
Rethink the proposed Metro System. Ensure it is
value for money and serves rural communities.
✓ Encourage healthier lifestyles and safer cycling
and walking. As a Doctor, I know health matters.
✓ Push for Councils to run bus services. So we
restore routes and have free travel for young
people. Could co-ordinated school transport
(American-style yellow buses) make a difference?
✓ Make a greener bus fleet a priority—aim to
convert to electric to cut pollution. Install more
charging points for electric vehicles.
Encourage car clubs where communities share
travel to work.
Meet and beat the toughest air quality targets.
