Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019
Representation ID: 167968
Respondent: Mr Mark Stewart
FIX A MAIN POINTS OF ACCESS AND PRIMARY STREET
Needs to consider measures to mitigate the traffic impact of the new village on surrounding villages and roads (Policy SS/7 8.c.i) - especially traffic heading south.
Although Fix A attempts to cover SS/7 policy 8.c.ii and iii, it does nothing to address SS/7 8.c.i ("Include measures to mitigate the traffic impact of the new village on surrounding villages and roads").
The SPD particularly needs to outline the measures to be taken to mitigate the impact from traffic heading south (e.g. to Royston and beyond), which is poorly served by public transport today (and no improvements are proposed). The natural route for such traffic is along the Main Street through Caldecote to Longstowe - this is very narrow in places and cannot safely accommodate an increase in traffic. It is unclear that additional traffic calming measures in Caldecote (e.g. speed humps) would encourage vehicles to use longer alternative routes.
