LDHS is delighted to announce that after years of campaigning, the Section 106 agreement for Northstowe phase 2 contains the following legally binding commitment:
The S106 for Northstowe Phase 2 includes the provision for a Heritage Core Group to take forwards the issues over heritage assets in and around Northstowe, including the provision of a Heritage Strategy for the entire site, both during and after construction. The group will be convened by the County Council, and initially will include a representative from SCDC, the HCA and LDHS/Longstanton Parish Council.
In addition the S106 contains a commitment to provide storage and display facilities for the LDHS archives.
We are on the brink of making our aim of a museum on Northstowe a reality and we are delighted to have been asked to provide a representative to the Heritage Core Group which will be tasked with taking these matters forward. After a decade of working on this project we are starting to see tangible results.
Many thanks to all our members, past and present, who have helped us get to this moment. We couldn’t have done it without you.
