We support schools being located on key walking and cycling routes and away from main roads. This will help children travel to school safely and begin to travel there independently when they are old enough to do so. We think it’s likely that a secondary school will be needed – this should be planned well in advance of need, alongside other services such as health centres and leisure facilities. All services should feel safe to walk or cycle to in all seasons and at all times of day. Lessons should be learnt from other developments in Cambridge: if services (including transport links, cycle hire and car clubs) are not in place before residents move in, car-dependency will become locked in. Care should be taken to maintain high-quality walking and cycling access throughout the different periods of construction, including to any ‘meanwhile projects’ on the site or in surrounding communities.

AS an existing resident of the surrounding area, and not being one of those who has school age children (which appears to be the only cultural provision on offer) I cant see what community stuff is going to improve my life that we do not already have.What I do suspect is that those local provisions would become hugely oversubscribed by the new residents (all 8000 families)

Where are the secondary schools? Surely there won't just be primary school age children living there. Are there plans for retirement centres? Healthy communities mix all ages.

It seems odd to plan 3 primary schools and 0 (zero) Secondary schools? Will travel facilities be in place from day1, or will people that move to this area on day 1 need to own a car (which they will start to rely on and the whole idea of walking and cycling therefore goes out of the window)? Having local schools close to your home is a good thing, so kids can start learning about the new "green" way of travelling at an early age.

There does not appear to be a GP practice, or a secondary school for an area the size of Ely. This is ridiculous. Neighbouring medical and educational facilities are already oversubscribed.

5 Are you planning to incorporate a new Health Centre/GP surgery in the area. Normally a GP surgery would serve around 10000 people. You would probably need two surgeries to meet the demand. I am surprised to see a library featured on your plan when these are being closed elsewhere. Local shops would not have sufficient custom to be viable and leisure facilities and coffee shops etc are unlikely to be used as only people without children, who are out at work all day, could bear to live in the proposed properties. Your brochure pictures a Pet Shop: high rise living is NOT suitable for pet ownership!

Much of what is proposed is sensible and appropriate given the future use of the area. Overall, NECAAP provides an exciting way of addressing demand for both accommodation and jobs in the Cambridge area. And congratulations on the rejection of a car-based community. However, to ensure the area becomes the vibrant destination of choice to live and work envisaged, there have to be a good range of attractive leisure facilities on site. The proposals appear weak and lack ambition in this regard. In a way it seems like you are planning for a community of the future but with the community facilities of a middling-development as might have been designed in the 1970s.

A secondary school will probably be needed and also more sports facilities.

A secondary school is very likely to be needed, and leisure and sports facilities as these are lacking in this part of the city. Only GP healthcare facilities despite a population the size of Ely.

Respondent: Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG

Mostly yes

The provision of health facilities within the district centre is welcomed; however, it should be explicit in policy that the developer will be required to gift the land and provide a "turn-key" facility / building to the NHS Cambridge and Peterborough CCG as part of any planning obligation. The timing / phasing of delivery of the facility will need to be agreed with the developer and the local planning authority in consultation with the NHS Cambridge and Peterborough CCG. The size of the building required will be based upon i) the projected population of the North East Cambridge growth area and ii) the range of services and health provision determined as necessary to cater for the wider health needs of the population. The latter will be determined in due course once the vision of healthcare provision from the facility has been finalised. For now, however, confirmation can be provided that a permanent GP Surgery will be required, together with facilities to host those "to be confirmed" additional services described above, along with the associated servicing and parking areas.

Yes, completely

The Trust is particularly supportive of a performing arts hub for northern Cambridge. We would recommend engagement with us on the design and form of such a facility if taken forward to help ensure its sustainability and viability.

Schools, health facilities and other community buildings should be in place as residents move into the first homes to promote low levels of car use and ownership.

A secondary school will be needed, as will sports facilities which are already lacking in North Cambridge. It should be a condition of the development that health and education facilities are put in place early to avoid pressure on the surrounding areas.

There don't seem to be any sports pitches, leisure centre or swimming pool so residents will have to leave the area to access these and this is likely to increase pressure on the roads. There is no cultural centre (see Eddington) and no definite plan for a secondary school. If children can't walk to a school, there will be increased car journeys.

Where are spaces for nature? No parks, or nature reserves anywhere, and many of the existing trees will likely be cut down.

Such an increase in population would likely need a secondary school. There don’t appear to be any community sports facilities (astro, swimming pool, gym) to accommodate the additional population and reduce the already high pressure on existing facilities. The addition of a care home for the increasing elderly population should also be considered. Furthermore, there is insufficient green space for the number of people – local green areas e.g. Milton Country Park, are already well used and would not have sufficient capacity for such an increase in footfall.

A new development of this size should include provision for the elderly: retirement housing, a Care Home and a Nursing Home. A secondary school is very likely to be needed, along with more leisure and sports facilities as these are lacking in this part of the city. We support schools and leisure facilities being located on key walking and cycling routes so that children can travel safely and independently to their destinations from a young age. Schools, health facilities and other community buildings should be in place as residents move into the first homes to promote low levels of car use and ownership.

Three primary schools planned but no secondary school – children would have to travel. Health care provision, nursery, sports provision are “pending further engagement with providers” – what guarantee they will fulfil and not be a drain on existing services? Many facilities are not in the high density area (Cowley Road) – may lead to social isolation.

I think it would be important to consider leisure facilities onsite (unless a 'health' facility is that), and a new secondary school site option is a good one though.
