Welcome to the Kimbolton & Stonely Parish Council 

This is the official Website of Kimbolton & Stonely Parish Council. The website has been designed and constructed to provide what we hope will be a valuable resource of information to all residents of the village and act as a vehicle to find out more about what is happening within the Council and the wider Kimbolton & Stonely community.

We wish for the site to be as proactive as possible and to be a two way channel of advice, assistance and information between residents and the Parish Council.

It will be achieved by:

  • involving local people more in what is happening in the village
  • improving communication
  • engaging everyone in local issues

COVID 19

During these difficult times, please be mindful of those who are alone and may be in need of assistance.  Even if you are unable to help directly yourself, don't hesitate to notify this Council of your concerns.

We are currently, through the willingness of volunteers, co-ordinating and delivering medicines on behalf of Kimbolton Medical Centre to their patients where-ever they may live.    We are also happy to fetch shopping for those unable to do so and are helping Robinson Budgen's in this matter.

NEW PEDESTRIAN CROSSING FOR KIMBOLTON VILLAGE

 

The village of Kimbolton is set to benefit from the construction of a new pedestrian crossing thanks to Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funding – part of a jointly funding partnership with Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) and Cambridgeshire County Council.

 

HDC Cabinet members supported the decision to use CIL funding of £20,000 as co-funding towards the project on the understanding that the project is completed by September 2023. Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) helps fund new community infrastructure to support development in an area on projects such as new schools, transport links, open spaces, and recreational facilities.

 

Huntingdonshire District Councillor, Ward Member for Kimbolton Jonathan Gray said: CIL funding is really benefitting our local communities, and for Kimbolton the allocation of funds to implement a much-needed pedestrian crossing on Thrapston Road is welcomed by all in the village.”

 

Cambridgeshire County Councillor, Ian Gardener said: This is a fantastic example of how CIL money and partner collaboration is enabling improvements to our communities and making a real difference to people’s lives.”

 

Chairman of Kimbolton & Stonely Parish Council, Councillor Paul Seabrook said: “I’m pleased to see this funding being committed to the village in addition to that provided by the Parish Council. Kimbolton Parish Council has long recognised the issue for residents crossing the B645, particularly for those with young children, the elderly and disabled.”

  CONTACTING THE POLICE 

Reporting non-emergencies online

Non-emergency situations can now be reported to the police online if people would rather do so than call 101.

In October last year Cambridgeshire Constabulary re-launched their website with added functionality to report non-emergencies via specially designed forms or a live webchat.

The live webchat option enables people to communicate directly with a member of staff in the control room, just as would be the case when calling 101. Online forms are processed in the same way as a call and the person reporting can expect a response within 24 hours.

Due to the high level of demand there are often queues when calling 101. Reporting online is quick, easy and free of charge.

Superintendent James Sutherland said: “In the digital age people are doing more and more online. I’m pleased that our website now has increased capability to allow people to contact us in this way.

 

“The system went through a thorough testing process and has been used successfully thousands of times since being introduced.

 

“Feedback from a recent survey suggested that some people wanted to communicate directly with a person rather than submitting an online form. The webchat function allows people to do exactly that.

 

“Reports submitted online are treated in the same way as when people call 101 and will receive the same outcome.”
