Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019

Representation ID: 168264

Received: 29/07/2019

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:


The 6 Strategic Objectives are supported, in particular the inclusion of a strategic objective on "Healthy, Active and Resilient" which encourages walking and cycling, and access to healthy food is welcomed. In addition the SPD should considered the availability of fast food outlets in the vicinity of the site or options to limits A5 uses within the development site. I would therefore recommend that the recommendations and findings of the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) guidance on "Planning Healthy Weight Environments" are carried forward and are included within the Bourn Airfield SPD.
