Figure 1: Infographic showing drivers for change
North East Cambridge is a complex area that is locally and strategically important. Its character and context has shaped the objectives of the Area Action Plan, and how the Plan achieves these aims through the spatial framework and policies.
It is important that North East Cambridge makes the most of its accessibility, the amount of land available and its connections locally and regionally. Creating a critical mass of activity in the area will help our economy to compete nationally over the next decades, and can reduce social inequality locally through the range of jobs and homes that are created. This will only be achieved through a comprehensive and coordinated approach to development across the whole of North East Cambridge.
