Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019

Representation ID: 168361

Received: 26/08/2019

Respondent: Mr Stephen Jones

Representation Summary:


In recognition of impacts of climate change SCDC aspires to create a cleaner, greener and zero-carbon future for all its communities. Therefore necessary for all elements of new village to integrate with natural environment, be innovatively designed and planned to meet and where possible exceed sustainability policy targets, and to secure net gains in biodiversity. Any adverse environmental impacts will not be supported unless they can be appropriately justified and mitigated.

Would like an explanation in SPD of how Council can reconcile their aspiration for a zero carbon future with development of 3500 houses where 70% or more of residents will need to use cars to get to work. How much carbon will be generated each year by scheme?
