Peter McDonald

Peter has lived in Whittlesford for 9 years and has been involved in campaigning on local issues. He and his wife have two sons, aged 18 and 20.  One is attending Hills Rd Sixth Form, and one has left The Leys School Cambridge for Durham University. 


Since 2016, Peter has been working with local councillors Susan van de Ven, Phillipa Hart and Jose Hales on key local issues.

Peter says "I really value this part of Cambridgeshire and see great potential for responsible local development of housing, jobs & infrastructure; yet I increasingly see powerful developers taking little or no account of our needs. Our infrastructure is creaking and groaning under the development of business without proper planning.

 "My recent work has included: 

 I lobbied with Lib Dem colleagues to restore winter gritting to key routes.

 I am part of the working group on the Whittlesford Neighbourhood Plan.

 I joined the volunteer group to set up the Shelford and Whittlesford Rail User 


 Buses in Heydon & The Chishills (31) and Foxton (26) will be preserved due to the hard work of the Lib Dem team.


 The local Lib Dem team have been liaising with local residents adversely affected by parking all day on roads around Shepreth station.

 I am supporting local residents in fighting against the unnecessary development of a Moto service station near Duxford

 I supported Susan’s campaign to create a safe and cycle friendly crossing at the Foxton A10 rail crossing.

 I have supported local residents to halt the proposed expansion of the Aerodrome Service Station near IWM Duxford

 I have supported the Fowlmere Parish council to help deliver the SpeedWatch initiative. 

 I have campaigned for less intensive development of the new housing adjacent to the A505 near Whittlesford to include more social housing.

I hope this work and others will convince you to support me in the forthcoming County Council election on May the 4th."
