Meldreth Station Yard Community Liaison Group


A new group has been formed over the summer for the purpose of working together to solve difficulties of residents arising from the situating of business premises at Meldreth Station Yard.


As the cold storage food distribution business at the Station Yard has grown, noise issues and lorry movements have become an increasing problem for residents living in the vicinity.


It is good to be able to learn from examples of problem solving in other villages. In Barrington, a community liaison group was set up many years ago to help coordinate activities of the cement plant around the daily lives of village residents. There, issues such as air quality monitoring and lorry movements were carefully monitored through the liaison group and the benefits extended to other villages too. Indeed Meldreth was spared cement factory lorry traffic on account of an agreed traffic movement scheme that avoided village roads as much as possible.


It seemed a good idea to follow this type of model for Meldreth and hence the ‘Meldreth Station Yard Community Liaison Group’ held its first meeting in July. We have had strong support from South Cambridgeshire District Council in its environmental health and planning role, from Eden Farms (the business currently situated on the station yard premise), a representative of the current owner of the site, Meldreth Parish Council and UK Power Networks, who are engaged in establishing a permanent power supply on site to replace the temporary generator.


It is still early days but we’ve made a good start. I’ve created a new page on my website for the Group in case anyone would like to know more about what has taken place so far and updates will of course be made as required to Meldreth Parish Council.
