2016 AGM

Our AGM was held on 15th September at Madingley Village Hall.  We were sorry to say farewell to our Chairman, Michael Monk, who is stepping down after six years’ service.  However we hope that he will enjoy his new role as CPRE East of England Regional Group Chairman.

Our speaker, Professor Peter Landshoff, spoke about the issues facing the Cambridge sub-region, and an interesting discussion followed.  The slides of his talk can be found at

If you, or anyone you know, would be interested in our Branch Chair role, please contact Tracey Hipson, tel: 01480 396698 or e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We were delighted to hear that Holt Island Nature Reserve, in St Ives, won Anglia in Bloom’s “Best Conservation Project in East Anglia”, and were runners-up for “Best Environmental Quality”.

The Friends of Holt Island, who help manage the reserve, are CPRE members and we enjoyed a visit last year with CPRE National Chairman Su Sayer.

Shaun Spiers (CEO), Tom Fyans (Director of Campaigns and Policy), with Tom Quinn (Publicity Assistant) recently visited the rapidly changing Alconbury Weald Development on a fact-finding mission. They were shown around the site, a former USAF airfield, by representatives of the developers UrbanandCivic. CPRE has supported the development for 5,000 homes and 8,000 jobs in an Enterprise Zone as an example of making good use of a brownfield site, saving many acres of Huntingdonshire's productive farmland. They were keen to understand the issues involved in developing a brownfield site - its advantages and challenges.
