Development of 30 dwellings including affordable housing and open space

Market and affordable housing

Public open space

The proposed development would provide additional housing and affordable housing for Cottenham. Cottenham is largely constrained by the Green Belt and there are limited opportunities for infill development within the settlement boundary, and as such a very limited amount of housing and affordable housing will have been provided in the village in recent years. The proposed development would include open space and landscaping, which would also provide ecological benefits. The proposed development would support the existing services and facilities in Cottenham including the school, public houses and bus services.

The site could accommodate 33 dwellings, which is based on a density of 30 dwellings/hectare and reflects the edge of settlement location and character of village and surrounding area.

No uploaded files for public display

No

Yes (please give details)

There is an existing vehicular access to the site from Histon Road.

No

The site is located within Flood Zone 1 which means it has a low probability of flood risk. The proposed development would include an appropriate drainage strategy to manage surface water drainage. An ecological assessment of the site will need to be undertaken, but it is unlikely that there will be any constraints to development, and the proposed development will seek to retain any ecological features on site and include ecological enhancement measures. The site is not affected by any heritage assets. Overall, there are no constraints to development at the site.

No

The proposed development will need to provide new utilities infrastructure, but there are services to the neighbouring urban area and so new connections will be possible.

Next 5 years

The site is promoted by a willing landowner, and is available for development.

Site is under option by a developer

It is anticipated that the site will be attractive to the market, because other sites in Cottenham and elsewhere in villages close to Cambridge have been subject to strong demand from developers and housebuilders. In addition, there is a limited supply of development sites in Cottenham, and the site is well related to Cambridge.

Proposed extension to the new mixed use village at Bourn Airfield to provide additional flexibility to the detailed design, layout and range of uses in the north eastern entrance, including the new expressway, in order to create a high quality attractive gateway into the village. The extended development area not only would provide a less constrained area for development than is currently defined by the Local Plan defined Major Development Site (MDS), but will also provide the opportunity to exercise best practice in master planning and placemaking, without the threat of coalescence with Caldecote/Highfields.

Public open space , Community facilities , Recreation and leisure , Healthcare , Hotel , Retail , Other

The current extent of the defined Major Development Site as shown on the adopted Policies Map Inset I was drawn on an arbitrary basis without any consideration to a design-led approach including master planning, layout, urban design and overall place-making principles. Policy SS/7 requires such a design-led approach to deliver the new village to a high standard of design and as an example of excellence in sustainable development. The existing MDS boundary in the north east entrance to the site creates a major constraint and unnecessary burden to achieve these policy and high quality place-making objectives. The submitted extension to the designated MDS will not only improve the scope to design a high quality gateway into the new village, but it will also provide a substantial green buffer to separate the new development from Caldecote/Highfields. This buffer could include new footpaths and a cycleway to connect the existing Caldecote/Highfields community with the new facilities, including the expressway, that will be provided as part of the comprehensive Bourn Airfield development.

Depending on the final range of uses, the area could accommodate up to 85 dwellings.

No uploaded files for public display

Yes (Please give details)

The current outline planning application for the new village at Bourn Airfield provides details (that are not reserved) of the principal eastern access into the site from the roundabout on St Neots Road, including the first section of the strategic public transport route. The necessary land required to provide these two means of access within the defined MDS leaves very little space for built development. This would result in a narrow band/ribbon for buildings adjacent to the transport routes that is insufficient to create a high quality and appropriate gateway into the new village. To increase the area to sufficient size and proportions to provide a high quality designed gateway.

No

No

No

The current outline planning application and supporting documents demonstrate that there are no constraints to the provision of key utilities to serve the new village. The proposed development of the new village at Bourn Airfield will provide the full range of key utilities to serve the scheme with sufficient additional capacity to allow for a greater amount of development than that currently planned in the outline planning application.

Available now

There are no physical or technical constraints to deliver development in the short term, as set out in the Bourn Airfield planning application. The whole of the application site is in single family ownership.

Site is under option by a developer

Market attractiveness would be high because of the urgent need for new homes in South Cambridgeshire, the proximity of the site to the City and key centres of employment and the proposed new strategic public transport route/expressway.

No, the site is in single family ownership.

The site is currently allocated in Policy SS/7 of the adopted South Cambridgeshire Local Plan.

Our vision is for a new community to the north of Cambourne, that is linked to, and complements the existing town. The new community would also be linked to Cambridge via a Park and Ride / Metro station / transport hub in close proximity to the A428 junction. The new community would comprise a number of linked mixed use local centres providing social, leisure and cultural uses (potentially including a new music venue); retail and employment spaces; primary and secondary education provision; and significant accessible green space.

Key benefits are the provision of housing and employment, appropriately located Park and Ride / Metro in the A428 corridor providing sustainable links to Cambridge; the potential for large gains in self-containment, reducing the need to travel to Cambridge; the provision of shared leisure, community, cultural and retail uses that would provide significant benefits to existing Cambourne residents.

See attached draft Development Framework, SK09.

The long term security of the Football Club is secured in circumstances where redevelopment of the existing site secures a new stadium on site. Such proposals bring forward new housing and an opportunity to secure more jobs on the site An option to relocate the Football Club onto an alternative site should also secure its future whilst new delivering new facilities on that site, as well as bring bringing new jobs and more housing forward on the Newmarket Road site which therefore becomes available for development

The proposals to date have involved the proposed redevelopment of the existing Abbey Stadium and the surrounding land to include a completely new stadium, 368 dwellings in a series of apartment buildings, ranging in height from four to eight storeys, and offices on the ground floor of one of the blocks of c 2,133 sqm GIA. No details are provided in the event that the whole Newmarket Road site becomes available for development in the event that a relocation site can be secured although it must be assumed that it would be greater in numbers than the above paragraph

No uploaded files for public display

Yes (Please give details)

In assessing the future of the site in design and layout terms , the perception is that the Stadium needs to be moved from west to east to accommodate reasonable vehicular access to the western part of the site from Newmarket Road (currently too narrow) given that the existing vehicular access via Cutthroat Lane is considered to be inadequate. In addition there are concerns about height issues onto Newmarket Road, particularly on account of the Listed buildings opposite.

No

Yes (Please give details)

Utilities obviously serve the existing site and so it is envisaged that new development would necessarily tie into this development

Nothing chosen

As an infill site it could provide much needed housing without significantly altering the shape, boundaries or development framework of the village. As private property, the current scrubland does not provide any amenity to the village nor use for its owners. Housing would be a significantly better use of the area than as an empty patch of unkempt land surrounded by existing dwellings, and a soon to be developed site. The site could provide new access to the countryside for prospective residents and improve the current access for villagers through the improvement of access to pathways and maintenance of borders which run alongside the site. The land is close to the village core so would provide sustainable development, reducing the number of car journeys in comparison to potential developments placed further afield. The development would be undertaken by a Cambridgeshire based company thus providing jobs and a boost to the local economy.

We estimate 5 subject to further evaluation from the Greater Cambridge Partnership. Based on the current formula of approximately 30 dwellings per hectare, it could accommodate up to 13 units, although we feel that the number should be significantly lower due to the low density of development in the area and the classification of Guilden Morden as a Group Village. However, we are happy to work with the Greater Cambridge Partnership on this.

The site has access from a track to the west of the site. It also joins the highway of Dubbs Knoll Road. Another private or adopted road could be created across the front of the site.

No

The land is slightly uneven, but slopes away from the front of site thus assisting drainage. In conducting a topographical survey, our engineer found no major obstacles to development. Ground surveys and investigations to be undertaken where appropriate.

No

A recent ecology report concluded: 'The proposed development will not adversely affect any non-statutory designated nature conservation sites. No habitats that occur within the survey area were considered to have high ecological importance on an international, national, regional or county scale.' No major mitigation required. Appropriate surveys have been undertaken.

Its location and potential attraction to buyers make it a viable proposition. The site is available immediately, a number of background surveys and work have already been done, and therefore it could be developed quickly. As an infill site it is also very attractive to buyers. It is within the current village core of Guilden Morden and is well served by local amenities. It is less than 150 metres from bus services, approximately 100 metres from the local primary school and under 400 metres from the recreation ground. This site could provide a sustainable and popular development.

Proposed redevelopment of the site to provide laboratory space for start up business (B1 business use). It is envisaged that a two storey building will be proposed on the application site, with a Gross Internal Floor Area of approximately 1600 sqm.

Employment (B1) office , Employment (B1b) research and development

Nothing chosen

The proposed development would provide important start-up units for laboratory based businesses, which would complement existing nearby employment in the District including at the nearby Granta Park and Babraham Research Campus. The provision of small laboratory spaces for start up businesses will enable businesses to invest and expand over time. Approximately 150 people will be employed on site, providing significant opportunities for employment growth. The proposed building will be constructed to a high standard, using sustainable building technology. The site is currently developed, however, any trees will be retained to the boundaries as screening where possible and the site landscaped to enhance it and encourage biodiversity gains. It is in a sustainable location, close to Cambridge with good access to the road network including the A1207 and A11. The site is located only 0.87km from the bus stops on Cambridge Road, which provide stops for the Haverhill - Linton - Abington - Cambridge bus services (services 13A/B/C/X13), which run regularly through the day Monday - Saturday. It is possible to walk from Little Abington on a paved footpath alongside the A1307 and Bourn Bridge. It would return to use a vacant brownfield site, which s strongly supported in the NPPF. The use would complement neighbouring uses of Four Wentways.

A draft plan has been prepared by MCW. It enables 23 laboratory spaces ranging bin size between 95 and 290 sqm. This plan also provides 15 small offices to complement the laboratory spaces, also ranging in size between 96 and 290 sqm. The design would enable a communal area and onsite café for staff employed on site.

Access is currently provided off High Street, Dry Drayton, but would need to be upgraded to an adoptable standard. Further access points could be achieved off Crafts Way/Saxon Way, Bar Hill, subject to successful negotiations held with the landowners who own the adjoining land between the highway and the proposed development site.

Yes (please give details)

The site slopes down from approximately 40 metres above sea level in the south-east to approximately 25 metres in the north-west. Any proposed layout will therefore be sympathetic to the site's contours, in order to reduce any amenity issues e.g. overlooking. Landscape buffering will also assist in reducing the visual impact in terms of long views into and out of the site.

Yes (Please give details)

The north-west portion of the site is located in Flood Zones 2 and 3. This flood zone, however, is largely concentrated along an existing drainage channel which bounds the site along its western border. Should negotiations with the adjacent landowner prove successful and thus the site be developed, it is anticipated that extensive upgrades to the existing drainage system would be made, therefore resulting in the risk of flooding on-site being reduced. Consequently, this may culminate in the downgrading of the on-site flood zone to levels 2 or 1. There is no known contamination on the site. Any future planning application would be accompanied by a Phase 1 Contamination Assessment, which would assess the likelihood of contamination and recommend mitigation measures (if necessary). It is unknown as to whether protected species are present on-site. Any future planning application would be accompanied by a Phase 1 Ecology Assessment, which would asses the likelihood of protected species being present on-site. Should there be a likelihood of protected species on-site, then further surveys would be undertaken and mitigation measures would be proposed e.g. the provision of bat/bird boxes. A Public Right of Way bounds the site to the west (REF: 66/1). In addition, considering the adjoining woodland between the site and the public highway, there is an opportunity to create a pedestrianised greenway and thus encourage future occupiers to access the surrounding countryside.

All services available to serve site. A 15 metre high telecommunications monopole is located in the south-east corner of the site.

Next 5 years

The landowner is keen to develop the site and has received enquiries. However, the site is not available immediately as negotiations need to be held with the adjacent landowner in order to secure further points of access for the site.

Enquiries received

Proximity to existing and regional transport links (upgrading of A14); available in the short term (on the basis of successful negotiations with adjacent landowner); and all constraints are considered to be minor and/or easily overcome.

Yes - the adjoining woodland between the site and the public highway in Bar Hill is under different ownership. Successful discussions with the adjoining landowner would enable additional access points to be created off Crafts Way/Saxon Way and thus bring significant benefits for the existing local community through the development of the site.

The Site is located within the New Town and Glisson Road Common Conservation Area. None of the buildings within the Site are listed, however they are all identified as Buildings of Local Interest (51-53 Hills Road and the Station Mews are excluded from this list). In addition, they are identified as ‘Buildings of Positive Townscape Value’ in the New Town and Glisson Road Conservation Area Character Appraisal (2012), (51-53 Hills Road and the Station Mews are excluded from this list). As such, the existing buildings are considered to be “non designated heritage assets”. In light of the above, the landowners recognise that it is important to understand the relative merits of the existing buildings and land in the context of these designations and the relevant legislation and policy framework. The landownershave therefore instructed an Initial Significance Assessment to understand the historic interest of the existing properties and this is enclosed with my letter. The findings from the Initial Significance Assessment are that the site could accommodate some form of development within its heritage contexts.

Site owned by a developer

The CB1 development has created a recognisable and distinct CBD that has been missing previously and it has attracted a number of significant pre-lets, a sign of its desirability. Land on the north side of Station Road provides a further development opportunity to continue the successful transformation of this part of the city and provide additional capacity to support the further clustering around the Station or simply very well-located development opportunities. The site is within single ownership and capable of delivering a well-designed, high quality development that could make efficient use of a brownfield site, in a sustainable location, whilst also being able to respect the significance of the heritage assets. The site’s proximity to Cambridge railway station, links to the Chisholm trail and the transport interchange at the Station also enables opportunities to promote sustainable transport modes. The landowners are at an early stage in considering potential development options for the site but consider that a range of different uses could be accommodated on the site and look forward to working with the Council, stakeholders and local community to refine the proposals further.

There would be abnormal land remediation costs owing to the land’s former use as a quarry and subsequent landfill area. The detailed site investigation works undertaken to date, in consultation with the Environment Agency and copied to the City Council’s Environmental Health Officer, indicate that mitigation within acceptable development control parameters is possible, albeit the works involved do constitute a higher upfront build cost relative to typical preparations for greenfield sites. The nature and extent of mitigation varies across the various land parcels. In preparing realistic and viable redevelopment proposals for this land, Anderson Group has factored-in robust allowances for these abnormal capital costs, based on the findings of site investigation works and our experience of delivering development on other sites of a similar nature and extent within the southeast. It is confident that redevelopment of the site is achievable in the context of viability tests set out in national policy and guidance.
