Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019

1. Introduction

Representation ID: 168261

Received: 29/07/2019

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:

1.6 PLANNING POLICY CONTEXT

The reference to the proposed GCP Cambourne to Cambridge route is welcomed, but at this stage the SPD needs to show commitment to a solution rather than "whilst recent reports have found a compelling case for the scheme, it is not yet confirmed", therefore what is the proposed solution to single car occupancy trips to Cambridge from Cambourne/Bourn Airfield?

2.4 ACCESS, MOVEMENT AND CONNECTIVITY

The commitment to explore the opportunities to create stronger linkages with Cambourne via the PROW network is welcomed, but there needs to be greater detail on which routes are suitable, which routes will need to be upgraded and any proposals to reclassify the designation of a PROW e.g. BOAT, Bridleway, Cycleway, Foot path etc. in order to ensure current provision is not adversely affected.

2.8 COMMUNITY FACILITIES AND SERVICES

The Statements on Page 21 regarding the current provision of Health Facilities, whilst correct may be too specific for the SPD. I.e. it is likely that an offsite facility for "health services" is required, and is likely to be at the Monkfield Practice, and should be mitigated by the development, the precise location of such a facility is not known at this stage and further guidance should be sought from the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group.

3. Vision & Objectives

Representation ID: 168264

Received: 29/07/2019

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:

VISION & OBJECTIVES

The 6 Strategic Objectives are supported, in particular the inclusion of a strategic objective on "Healthy, Active and Resilient" which encourages walking and cycling, and access to healthy food is welcomed. In addition the SPD should considered the availability of fast food outlets in the vicinity of the site or options to limits A5 uses within the development site. I would therefore recommend that the recommendations and findings of the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) guidance on "Planning Healthy Weight Environments" are carried forward and are included within the Bourn Airfield SPD.

5. Creating the Place - Section 1: A Well Connected Place

Representation ID: 168265

Received: 29/07/2019

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:

1A A STREET NETWORK THAT INTEGRATES MOVEMENT AND PLACE

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.

6.4 DEVELOPMENT QUANTUM

The SPD identifies the potential to explore the sharing of sports provision with schools by providing community access. This is welcomed, however any reduction should not be at the expenses of other informal or formal green space.
