May 21 2016: Electoral Review of South Cambridgeshire. The independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is carrying out an electoral review of South Cambridgeshire District Council. This has proposed that Oakington and Westwick should be moved into a new ward called "Longstanton" that will also cover Northstowe, until maybe that reaches a sufficient size to justify a separate ward.  There is a consultation on this move open until 25 July 2016.  For further information and details of how to comment on the proposal see a summary here and a fuller document with map here.  The Parish Council would also be very interested to hear your views, through our "Contact Us" page.

September 30 2015: Future District and Parish Council Elections.  It has been decided that in future all South Cambridgeshire District Council and Parish Council Elections will take place on the same date, in order to reduce costs.  The first such combined Election date will be in May 2018.  However, any District Councillor elected in 2012 will have to stand for election again in 2016 but will then serve only two years, and councillors elected in 2015 will serve only 3 years, etc.
