Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019
Representation ID: 168075
Respondent: Ben Strutt
2.4 - ACCESS, MOVEMENT AND CONNECTIVITY
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'.
