Duxford Air Show 

Ahead of the Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September, IWM Duxford has released some important safety information that it wishes to share with local residents:

  • IWM Duxford takes great care to ensure that its air shows are as safe as possible for everyone involved.

  • ‘Secondary crowding’ is no longer acceptable at any air show and IWM has a duty of care to ensure that this is reduced as much as possible. It is therefore not safe to occupy the fields surrounding IWM Duxford during the air show. If you do so you are putting yourself and the display pilots in harm’s way and potentially preventing IWM from continuing with the flying programme.

  • In support of this, and to ensure that the emergency services have clear, unhindered access, Grange Road will be closed on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September 2017.

  • These fields around IWM Duxford are private property and IWM has been working with the farmers to prevent trespassing. Therefore there is no public access to these fields at any time.

IWM will continue to monitor these measures and ensure where possible that the disruption to the local community is kept to a minimum. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

  • Please also note that two of the aircraft teams displaying as part of the Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show will be using pyrotechnics and simulated explosions within their flying displays.


Proposed Grain Store 

Thriplow Farms are proposing to build a 10,000-tonne grain store on Fowlmere Road, to replace the existing store in Thriplow. The planning committee of Foxton Parish Council have serious traffic safety and lansdcape issues with the proposed site on Fowlmere Road, and would prefer an alternative site on Newton Road (as originally proposed by Thriplow Farms). 

For more details, please see the notes from a planning committee meeting on 23rd March, which can be found here.


Changes to the number 26 bus 

Stagecoach has now announced a reinstatement of the hourly service, with off-peak journeys terminating at Trumpington Park & Ride, starting in the last week of July (after the end of the school term).


Extension of Foxton Station northbound platform

The Thameslink programme are extending the northbound platform at Foxton Station to allow brand new trains to call at the station. More information on this project can be found here.


Neighbourhood Plan

Foxton Parish Council are in the process of creating a Neighbourhood Plan, which will give the village more say in planning applications within the Parish. To find out more, or to see how you can get involved, please see the Neighbourhood Plan page.

There is now a dedicated web site for the Neighbourhood Plan at www.foxtonnp.org.uk. Here you can find out more about the current progress, and register your comments.
