Providing ‘genuinely’ affordable housing and agreeing a final funding package for the planned new leisure centre at Ely are just two of the objectives the newly elected East Cambridgeshire District Council wants to deliver as part of its 100-day commitment to residents.
And to deliver on its promises the Ely-based authority will be working on a number of areas which including the establishment of the Local Authority Trading Company to develop commercial land opportunities for the council.
Council leader Cllr James Palmer,said: “Trust me this is not about words for words sake – I want to use the next 100 days to show what we can achieve for the district.
“So whether it is agreeing the funding for the district wide leisure centre or getting our partners to confirm a timetable for progress on the Soham Railway Station – I want to make meaningful progress in these areas and many more. I am determined to make good on our promises to turn the potential of East Cambridgeshire into a reality.”
