"The Cambridge Northern Fringe East Area Action Plan is an important document for Cambridge and the wider area. It sets out policies and proposals to guide future development. This strategy is an important first step in showing that Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council want to be proactive and engage with as many people as possible from the outset. It is about ensuring that people have an opportunity to have their say about the planning issues facing the area and how it should develop to 2031. The approach is about being inclusive, open and transparent. A successful Area Action Plan cannot be developed without hearing the views from people who live, work and visit the area or might do so in the future."
Councillor Kevin Blencowe
Executive Councillor for Planning Policy and Transport
Cambridge City Council
"The proposed new railway station on the northern edge of Cambridge provides South Cambridgeshire and Cambridge City councils with a unique opportunity to regenerate the final major piece of brownfield land available in the city. We want to make sure we deliver a vibrant gateway for the area and to help to continue our economic success story into the future. To do this we need your views.
As with any plan, the starting point is to put options in front of local people to get their input as early as possible. Your views will be a key part of putting together a successful Area Action Plan to redevelop the area around the new station."
Councillor Robert Turner
