Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019

Representation ID: 168265

Received: 29/07/2019

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:


The inclusion of "...street network that integrates movement and place" is welcomed, greater clarification is needed on the commitments to deliver segregated cycle routes and segregated pedestrian routes at present the SPD is unclear if separate routes will be delivered or if shared surfaces will dominate. The term "alongside streets" needs to be defined/clarified to understand the level of segregated routes which will be expected to be provided. The plan on page 39 showing the "strategic walking and cycling connections" appears to show a gap in provision to the South West corner of the site, this may be due to lack of residential housing in this area or provision of green space, either way the reasoning behind this gap should be made clear.
