Sawtry Development

18/01458/OUT | Erection of circa 350 dwellings alongside associated site, infrastructure, open space (including provision of sports and play facilities), land earmarked for a community facility, and a high level of landscaping. | Land North Of Shawley Road And West Of Glatton Road Sawtry .

There are concerns over traffic created from the Glatton road planning application.

The application assumes most of the traffic coming from these houses will go south through Sawtry to access major roads.  However, it has been suggested that a large amount of the traffic coming from these houses on the north side of Sawtry will come through Glatton to access the A1, etc.

The Parish Council would like to encourage anyone wishing to comment to do so on the  HDC planning portal under the above reference.

The closing date for comments on this development is 8th October 2018.
Please have your say!

Gritting Volunteers 2018-19

Photo: Terry Brignall

The Parish Council are asking for local volunteers to help keep the community of Glatton moving in freezing weather.  The council would  like to thank the volunteers who took part in the Community Gritting Scheme during a very challenging winter season last year.  We very much hope you will do so again this year.

For those hearing about the Community Gritting Scheme for the first time, it is a scheme where local volunteers can help to keep the community moving in freezing weather. Under this scheme, the parish council agrees specific routes in our area which are important to the local community and agrees them with the county council.

You will need to complete a Community Gritting Word Form  and send it to our Clerk to the Parish Council, Helen Ford, so you  may be included in this year’s scheme.  Those who have volunteered before will need to complete a new form  so as to ensure  health and safety standards are being met.  Please return your forms as soon as possible to enable Helen to return them to Cambridgeshire County Council by the end of October. 

For further information please see the web page:

Harvest Festival Weekend – 6th & 7th October 2018

Posted in St Nicholas | Tagged , | Leave a comment


A Glatton couple have been in touch with the police and the Cambridgeshire County Council fraud team, as they were getting answer phone messages (five in total) from, allegedly, the HMRC stating they had a bill to pay and, if it wasn’t paid, legal action would be taken. The message was  fairly threatening. As they knew it was not true they contacted the authorities.

The outcome was, obviously, it is/was a scam and one that is becoming fairly widespread.

They asked CCC fraud team to send some materials that could be share via the Parish Council and also via the Glatton website.  

There are about 5 copies of each of the items, as shown above, and if you would like copies please contact me – Carole Green – on 01487 830357 or e-mail me at and I will get copies to you.  Some of these publications can also be downloaded from the CCC Fraud Team link above.

Didn’t they do well?

Some of you will remember an unusual “Please Will you Marry Me?”  request made by Lee Juniper to Rosie Peters.

Thank goodness, Rosie said ‘Yes’ and the wedding took place on Saturday, 28th July 2018 in St. Nicholas Church, Glatton.
When it came to the giving and receiving of rings, they were delivered up the aisle by a remote controlled toy fork lift truck, much to the surprise of the Bride.  Well! we have come to expect nothing less.
Congratulations to you both – it was a wonderful day.
