Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019
Representation ID: 168199
Respondent: Dr Tumi Hawkins
3E OPEN SPACES AND LANDSCAPE CHARACTER
The SPD on page 51 states:
"Strategic landscaping of the village's edges to create a landscape setting for the village, mitigate the impact of the new village on surrounding landscape areas and limit the sense of coalescence with adjacent settlements. There is potential to include play space that is compatible with the countryside edge. Edge treatments are set out in Fix G and described in Policy SS/7 (6)"
Private gardens on West Drive, Highfields Caldecote back onto the Eastern boundary of the site.
Play space should not be placed at the eastern edge of the site because of potential noise from the playing fields and light pollution from lighting on the fields and any paths that are adjacent to the site.
