Flooding in Cottenham

14th September 2004

We had a very good turn out to hear presentations from the Environment Agency, local councillor Mike Mason, and developers the Fairfield Partnership outlining the issues relating to flooding, flood defences and the proposed new 'Northstowe' development. Many thanks to all our speakers.

Some of the visual presentations given by the speakers can be downloaded below.

We also presented the winner of our Windows Competition Mrs Andrea Thompson with her prize - a beautiful print of Cottenham by local artist Rebecca Tindall. Congratulations to Andrea and everyone who correctly identified all nine windows.

We aim to ensure that development and change in Cottenham is based on a considered understanding of the Village's past and present, and that it will contribute positively to the future of the Village, protecting and enhancing its special nature
