2013 New Year Message

2nd January 2014

Let’s consider just how rapidly things have progressed in Huntingdonshire in 2013.

Not only was the A14 upgrade announced, more good news followed when the Government decided, that having considered consultation responses, plans for tolling part of the road were to be dropped. This decision was a welcome one, especially for those who were concerned about the impact of a tolled A14 on other roads such as the A428 and the A1123.

Alconbury Weald Enterprise Zone has now built its first incubator unit. It is now considered the leading Enterprise Zone in the UK and the site will provide up to 8000 new jobs and much needed new homes for the area.

Our market towns have also seen the promised growth with Huntingdon benefitting from a £25M investment to bring some big hub shops into the town and a further £10M on the new link road. St Neots will soon see its cinema open for business!

So Huntingdonshire certainly is ‘holding its own’ and as I look to the next few years the foundations have been laid for our area to experience arguably its most exciting period of growth, investment and development. This will be a key focus for me in 2014 and beyond.

A priority now is the need for an improved A428 and I recently launched a campaign on this issue. I need a huge show of people saying this road is not working, backed up by thousands signing an online petition to get the ball rolling. Then I can go to the Highways Agency and the Government, have a meeting with the Transport Minister, and say this has got to be dealt with. If you agree with me that this road needs improving then please add your support by signing the petition.


With best wishes for a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
