Policy HIM03 Size, Scale and location of New Housing

Cambridgeshire County Council, as landowner, objects to requirement, under HIM03, that 'Entry to the estate should be no further than 800m, by a safe and direct walking and cycling route, from one of the two Community Centre' as it is too prescriptive, does not allow for individual site requirements and may limit potential for appropriately located, integrated and accessible development to meet future needs as required.

Cambridgeshire County Council, as landowner, would suggest that the wording be refined as follows, 'Entry to the estate should be preferably no further than about 800m, by a safe and direct walking and cycling route ' to allow for greater flexibility to account for individual site requirements/constraints when a site is brought forward for development.

HIM12 - Local Green Space

Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC), as landowner, objects to both allocation of Infant School Field on New School Road (Ref V14) and northern part of Northern Buxhall Farm site (Ref V4) as designated Local Green Spaces as defined in NPPF.

Infant School Field already designated as PVAA under Local Plan. Regarding northern part of Northern Buxhall Farm site: to be designated as a Local Green Space, land needs to meet tests set out in NPPF. Northern part of Northern Buxhall Farm site currently outside of village envelope , remote from village core; is not readily accessible on foot; and holds little significance in terms to historic significance, recreational value or beauty. Already green belt.

CCC wants to work with community to provide recreational/amenity space as part of a wider future development. CCC already provides permissive access to Histon Wood and Girton Wood (Table5: HIM12 V12, V13). CCC submitted southern area of Buxhall Farm Site as part of Greater Cambridge Local Plan 'Call for Sites' and will continue to promote it in future.

HIM17 - The Infant School

Cambridgeshire County Council, as landowner, objects to designation for site to be safeguarded for community use only. Proposals for a new school site are being developed at Buxhall Farm but there is no absolute guarantee that CCC will be successful in obtaining planning permission. Long-term plans for site, if CCC is successful in obtaining planning permission, have yet to be determined. Policy highlights a preference for health facilities to be located on site. No direct approach has been received from our health partners regarding site. Policy states that if during the plan period, it becomes evident that there is no demand for community facilities on this site, then alternative uses of benefit to the community, including an affordable housing scheme to meet prevailing Community needs, will be supported. CCC objects to inclusion of this wording as it is too prescriptive. CCC submitted site as part of the Greater Cambridge Local Plan 'Call for Sites' -will continue to promote it in future. CCC aware of community's interest in site - willing to engage to consider long-terms plans for area.
