Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019

Representation ID: 168259

Received: 29/07/2019

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:


In the Spatial Framework Plan (4.2 of the SPD) it suggests the north-south runway as a focus for the green corridor. The north-east to south-west runway is of greater significance to the military use of the site as this would have been the main runway under prevailing weather conditions. We suggest that consideration should be given to this feature in terms of the site's heritage.
