Concern about the Cambridge boathouse development widens

Widespread concern has been raised about the Cambridge University Boat Club proposal to build a new boathouse on Fore Mill Wash. Over 100 passionate and articulate objections (many from our members) have been lodged on the ECDC website outlining the serious concerns with the proposed plans. There is also growing interest in the local and national press, including articles in the Ely Weekly News on the strong local concerns and the impact of the proposals on the otter populations, an article in the Ely Standard, and a letter in the Independent. A recent widely read blog on the subject has also sparked considerable interest.
