Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019

Representation ID: 168075

Received: 24/07/2019

Respondent: Ben Strutt

Representation Summary:


The current modal and traffic models (around 800 vehicle movements at peak) are believed to grossly underestimate the likely reality, in the context of the only alternative being a bus to Grange Road. A further practical point is that many commuters will not be travelling into Cambridge at all, which presents a strategic necessity for a more drastic infrastructure solution. The draft SPD currently states on Page 15 that 'no strategic case is made [for an A428 link]' which we believe to be untrue. I believe a direct A428 access remains a viable option, and the most practical and sustainable solution to mitigate the dangers and externalities of 3500 households, and their travel, on local village communities. I would like developers to be held to account on the specific Infrastructure Delivery Plan mandate 'If traffic is above modal flows, monitoring and fund is required for traffic calming'.
