Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019

Representation ID: 168044

Received: 24/07/2019

Respondent: The National Trust

Representation Summary:

The site context for a development of 35000 dwellings and related uses on land allocated for development at Bourn Airfield New Village extends beyond the surrounding features identified in the draft SPD. It includes the Wimpole Hall Estate, lying approximately 7km to the south of the proposed development. Wimpole Hall is the closest National Trust property to Bourn.

The site context also extends beyond the local authority's boundaries. The wider decision making framework set out by government for the Oxford to Cambridge Arc includes the A428/A1303 corridor within which Bourn Airfield sits, providing relevant context for the SPD.
