Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019
Representation ID: 168307
Respondent: Dr Tumi Hawkins
FIX F GREEN EDGES AND CORRIDORS - NORTH EAST GREEN GAP
SPD proposing planting that contradicts Draft Caldecote Village Design Guide - page 22, paragraph 9.3 and Figure 26, page 23 shows the area as a "desired green amenity buffer to distinguish between settlements."
Recommend the area is currently an open vista that has been the character setting of Highfields Caldecote and that openness MUST be maintained.
There should be no tree planting on southern boundary edge adjacent to West Drive. That boundary is currently mid height hedge which could be enhanced to maintain open aspect.
Due to proximity of houses, there should be no playspace on the green gap to avoid noise nuisance and light pollution to residents.
