Cambridgeshire County Councillor Steve Count, Chairman of the General Purposes Committee, said: â€œThe Estate is an important part of Cambridgeshireâ€™s rural economy, supporting many small businesses and providing an important first rung on the farming ladder for new entrants into farming, whilst providing vital funding for wider Council services. It also helps to protect the local unique countryside and environment as well as providing leisure opportunities in the countryside. We look forward to anyone interested in becoming a tenant to contact the Council.â€
