The first Annual General Meeting for the Eddington Residents’ Association will be held on 26 November 2020 at 7 pm. The meeting will take place over Zoom.
The sustainable nature of the Eddington development does not only spark interest amongst professional bodies (see the many awards Eddington has won so far for architecture, etc.) but also amongst schools and pupils. A growing number of students are using Eddington as a research topic in their courses or final year projects. The ERA is regularly receiving questions to advertise questionnaires, provide input, etc. and we are happy to help.
Please find below the most current requests we received. If you are willing to help out, feel free to click the links and fill out the surveys.
The ERA reported earlier on the Greater Cambridge Partnership consultation for the Madingley Road Cycling and Walking Project.

The Executive Board took the decision at its meeting on 25 June to approve proposals to move ahead with Option 2. This was the preferred option identified during the consultation and is the option which includes a two-way cycleway on the north side of Madingley Road.

Roof terrace fire
At four in the afternoon on Wednesday, May 20, firefighters attended a roof terrace fire in Wileman Way.
Residents of the Key Worker apartment block expressed surprise in the residents' Facebook group that they weren't evacuated. The Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue service has said: "The fire was contained to a flower container on a roof terrace and the cause was believed to be a discarded cigarette.
"There was no evacuation, as the fire was relatively small and did not pose any significant risk to residents."
Residents in other apartment blocks expressed concern about whether final exit doors would unlock in the event of a fire, following failures of electrically operated doors earlier this year.
Eddington Number Challenge returns
As the weather gets warmer we would like to invite you to take part in the Eddington Number Challenge - NWCD
The Eddington Number campaign was devised to get more people cycling, running and walking in the Cambridge area. The campaign is based around the Eddington number for cycling – which takes its name from its inventor, Sir Arthur Eddington, who was also the astrophysicist that the Eddington district is named after.
