Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019

Representation ID: 168216

Received: 28/07/2019

Respondent: Hardwick Parish Council

Representation Summary:


The other main topic discussed was the lack of a medical centre on the settlement and the possible reliance on Cambourne to provide the facilities; this makes no sense as it would mean car owners would have to drive there, and residents without transport would have to walk to the north side of the site to get public transport to Cambourne.

We thought the idea was to get people out of their cars, but this would just increase traffic movements throughout the day.

Although some residents objected to the use of traffic calming because of possible queues, and more pollution, and difficulty getting in and out of drives and onto junctions, it is part of the developers plan to mitigate problems if they arise.

This particularly concerns rat runs through the surrounding villages and these will be monitored and traffic calming considered.

If there is no agreement on a junction on to the A428, then there should be a traffic management/ restriction on the A1303 from Bourn Broadway to the Madingley Mulch roundabout.
The developers need to make sure traffic is monitored, and a base line established before development so comparisons can be accurately made.
