Histon & Impington Neighbourhood Plan - Submission consultation

Representation ID: 168102

Received: 29/07/2019

Respondent: South Cambridgeshire District Council

Representation Summary:

Policy HIM17 The Infant School Site

a)SCDC welcomes Plan considered future of this building for community use particularly for health facilities. No specific time scale included in wording if health facility does not come forward. Would reduce risk of building remaining empty if a time scale is set for safeguarding to allow for preferred use to be achieved. Would allow for other uses as set out in policy to come forward after this time.

b)Current criteria in policy relate to transport needs - missed opportunity to not have mentioned design criteria. Policy could mention Village Design Guide to provide guidance for the design of development in this site.

c)Alternatively, area would benefit from a design framework or brief which sets out a spatial design strategy.
