Draft North East Cambridge Area Action Plan

Representation ID: 55930

Received: 05/10/2020

Respondent: Ridgeons Timber & Builders Merchants and Turnstone Estates

Agent: Carter Jonas

Representation Summary:

Figure 36 shows proposed strategic walking and cycling routes in the North East Cambridge
area, including a new route from Nuffield Road across the Cambridge Guided Busway to Cowley Road.
It is likely that the strategic walking and cycling route would continue south along Nuffield Road
beyond the AAP area. However, it should be noted that Ridgeons operate a builders merchant from a
site with the main vehicular access on to Nuffield Road, immediately adjacent to the southern
boundary of the AAP. There are delivery and customer vehicles, typically vans and HGVs, entering
and exiting the builders merchant throughout the day. Therefore, the design and layout of the
proposed strategic walking and cycling routes along Nuffield Road, including parts of Nuffield Road
beyond the AAP area, should avoid potential conflicts between pedestrians and cyclists and vehicles
accessing existing businesses include the builders merchants at the
Ridgeons site.
