Dear Member of Cambridgeshire Scouting

At the AGM last year, the then County Commissioner promised to contact the County once the Planning Permission had been granted for the potential development of Abington, the County  ampsite. Planning Permission has been granted and following a County Executive meeting on Monday last as the Acting County Commissioner, I have agreed to contact you all.


The County Executive would like to hear from any Individual, Group or District that has a proposal for the future of the site. Any proposal must be submitted by the 31st May 2012 and should include indicative costs and the potential benefits of the proposal. Having received the proposals they will all be given due consideration based upon the benefit to young people, the Counties activities to that end and the cost benefit analysis of the proposal. The County Executive Committee will make a final decision on which proposal to implement at its September meeting.

Proposals should be sent to the County Secretary by the 31st May 2012

This is an opportunity to have your say about the future of Abington and I hope you will feel able to contribute to the debate. If you have any queries or questions about this action please do not  hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely


The Scout Association
Rob Lyon, Regional Commissioner East of England
