North East Cambridge Area Action Plan Issues and Options 2019

Question 21a: In order to minimise the number of private motor vehicles using Milton Road, should Cambridge Science Park as well as other existing employment areas in this area have a reduction in car

Representation ID: 33806

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Trinity College Cambridge is already acting to reduce the number of car parking at CSP and this will continue. A policy framework needs to reflect that a reduction in car parking will happen over a period of time, but that there is a shared ambition to reduce travel by the private car and encourage people to travel by sustainable transport means.

Question 21b: Should this be extended to introduce the idea of a reduction with a more equitable distribution of car parking across both parts of the AAP area?

Representation ID: 33807

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The AAP needs to recognise Cambridge Science Park as a well-established Science Park with many established companies, some of which are subject to long leases. The Cambridge North Station area is for regeneration where a place, and how it functions, can be designed from concept to delivery; including the expectations and function around car parking.

CSP is moving towards an approach with fewer car parking spaces, certainly for future development which is expected to work within the amount of car parking available within CSP. A policy framework needs to reflect this very different context and that CSP will inevitable have to move slower than Cambridge North towards car parking provision.

Question 22: Should the AAP require innovative measures to address management of servicing and deliveries, such as consolidated deliveries and delivery/collection hubs?

Representation ID: 33808

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The APP must embrace new technologies and new ways of managing places, particularly where there are large areas managed by single institutions. This will be a rapidly changing matter as technologies improve and are implemented. The AAP policy should not restrict what the solutions may be, but rather have a policy framework that supports and allows for innovate solutions as they come forward.

Question 23: Should development within the North East Cambridge area use car barns for the storage of vehicles?

Representation ID: 33809

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Allowance should be made. However, it should not make them mandatory. Autonomous vehicles are to be an integral part of the future transport system and the way people, particularly young people, travel is already changing, i.e. young people attaining driving licences. Car ownership is not destined to continue for the long term.

The future possibilities have to be taken seriously. Car barns could, perhaps, become redundant in years to come, due to technological innovations such as autonomous driving, trends in car sharing and phone-app management.

The AAP should include a policy framework that strives for the appropriate parking solution at that time and encourage innovative solutions that reduce the need for car parking spaces and reduces the need to build car parking spaces.

As a general point, Trinity College Cambridge wish to enhance the public realm and green spaces within CSP so that they better provide for sustainable travel choices, more pleasant areas, promote outdoor working and enhance the quality of place.

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The focus needs to be on coordinated and integrated transport solutions. It will be a leading mix of high-quality infrastructure to support sustainable travel and working with transport providers to improve bus and train travel opportunities. Technology should be fully embraced to consider if there is a more innovate way of providing public transport through a demand-based system.

Question 29: Do you agree that we should require high levels of cycle parking from new developments?

Representation ID: 33815

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Current policy provides a good level of cycle parking. The greater effort should be on providing the supporting infrastructure - safe and convenient routes, showers, lockers, cycle maintenance, incentives to travel by cycle.
