Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:

4.2 SPATIAL FRAMEWORK PLAN

At the earlier stages of the SPD preparation the County Council responded from an education perspective to the three spatial options for Bourn Airfield SPD. Whilst Option A was ultimately adopted by the draft SPD, the County Council's preference in terms of education was Option B which brought the spine road further into the site with the effect of re-locating the secondary school and primary school south of the spine road. The Council's response stated "This option (B) seems to provide a good balance between accessible links within the site for pupils and external links for staff. The A428 is further away and therefore the noise and air quality impacts would be much less severe than Option A. This option responds better to the issues raised by the Council's earlier submission to the planning application consultation".

In respect to Option A, the Council's concerns relating to noise and air quality impacts from the adjacent A428 dual carriageway remain and therefore is not the optimum location for schools within the development. Option A could only be considered acceptable if the environmental concerns could be adequately addressed.

It is acknowledged that Option A is the preferred option for the SPD and the reason for this is set out in the Consultation Statement. This states "area there will be significant landscaping which may be bunded to reduce the visual, noise and air quality impacts of the A428. Advice from air quality and noise experts within the Council have suggested the impacts of the road could be mitigated by the detailed orientation and design of the buildings, in addition to the delivery of a significant landscape belt".

5G NOISE, LIGHT AND AIR QUALITY

The Council will require that any noise and air quality mitigation required to deliver both schools along the A428 boundary is fully evaluated as part of the planning application. Mitigation in the form of landscaping and bunds cannot encroach on land reserved for education purposes.

6.2 INFRASTRUCTURE DELIVERY PLAN

23 FOUL WATER NETWORK - PAGE 77

The County Council welcomes the recognition of the presence of the Bourn Water Recycling Centre (WRC), and the potential constraint it may pose for the proposed re-development of the Airfield. The WRC is safeguarded through the adopted Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Minerals and Waste Core Strategy 2011, and associated Site Specific Proposals Plan 2012, through Policies CS31 and SSPW7E respectively. Policy CS31 states:

"Waste Water Treatment Works Safeguarding Areas will be identified around existing (and allocated) waste water treatment works to prevent the encroachment of sensitive development which would give rise to future amenity issues and impose additional constraints on the operation of the waste water treatment works.

Waste Water Treatment Works Safeguarding Areas will be identified in the Site Specific Proposals Plan and defined on the Proposals Map, extending 400 metres around existing and proposed works, with a capacity exceeding 2000 population equivalent. The Waste Planning Authority must be consulted on any planning proposal within a Safeguarding Area except:
a. householder applications (minor development works relating to existing property)
b. advertisements

Within the Safeguarding Areas there is a presumption against allowing development, which would be occupied by people. This would include new buildings or changes of use of buildings to residential, industrial, commercial, sport and recreational uses.

Where new development is proposed within the Safeguarding Areas involving buildings which would normally be occupied, the application must be accompanied by an odour assessment report. The assessment must consider existing odour emissions of the waste water treatment works at different times of the year and in a range of different weather conditions.

Planning permission will only be granted when it has been demonstrated that the proposed development would not be adversely affected by the continued operation of the existing waste water treatment works."

2.9 OPPORTUNITIES AND CONSTRAINTS

The SPD's Fig 21 Key Constraints maps the WRC and the Safeguarding Area which extends 400 metres around the works. It would helpful for the SPD to note that any proposed development in this Safeguarding Area would be subject to Policy CS31 referred to above (or any successor policy as the new Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Minerals and Waste Local Plan is due to be adopted at the end of 2020, and has a comparable policy emerging).

4.2 SPATIAL FRAMEWORK PLAN

Section 4.2 sets out the Spatial Framework and indicative uses. The uses in the Safeguarding Area which surrounds the Bourn Water Recycling Centre (WRC) includes strategic landscape which is acceptable. However, there also seems to be an area that is not defined in the key (pale green horizontal hatching), it would be helpful if this was identified so that a view can be taken as to whether this is compatible with the WRC.

Representation Summary:

6.6 PLANNING APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

Section 6.6 sets out the requirements for planning applications. The site is an airfield with a considerable amount of runway and hard surfacing which may require removal and recycling and as it is a strategic site the development should comply with Policy CS28 of the adopted Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Mineral and Waste Core Strategy. This will require the site wide planning application to include the submission of a Waste Management Audit and Strategy which will set out the anticipated nature and volumes of waste arising (demolition and construction). It must also set out the detailed measures to be put in place to minimise the waste arising; together with the steps that will be taken to segregate, source, store, recover and recycle that waste. Consistent with Policy CS28 provision should also be made for a temporary recycling facility to be in place throughout the construction phases of development. Specifying this requirement at this stage will allow any developer to reflect this is their proposal, and their detailed phasing plans.

Representation Summary:

3F INTEGRATING INHERITED ASSETS

An archaeological trial trench evaluation and geophysical survey was undertaken in the proposed development under S/2953/15/E2 & S/3440/18/OL. These identified that the application area was intensively settled and cultivated in the Iron Age and Roman period. The 20th century military aviation heritage is also of significance.

The development proposals will result in the impact of sub surface assets of archaeological interest. This can be managed by an archaeological condition as previously advised for planning application S/3440/18/OL.

We note that the 20th century use of the site as a military airfield is referenced but consider that heritage assets within the site have greater potential to contribute to the character and distinctiveness of the emerging new settlement.

1.3 KEY ISSUES

Section 1.3 sets out the key delivery issues to be addressed by the SPD. We would in particular suggest that the historic environment could contribute to the following identified key issues:

1. Delivering a strong community with its own identity
3. Settlement pattern
4. Supporting a shift towards sustainable access and movement

As well as considerations such as open space and recreation these issues could be supported by heritage trails and interpretation referring both the archaeological and military heritage.

Representation Summary:

4.2 SPATIAL FRAMEWORK PLAN

In the Spatial Framework Plan (4.2 of the SPD) it suggests the north-south runway as a focus for the green corridor. The north-east to south-west runway is of greater significance to the military use of the site as this would have been the main runway under prevailing weather conditions. We suggest that consideration should be given to this feature in terms of the site's heritage.
