North East Cambridge Area Action Plan Issues and Options 2019

Question 30: Should we look at innovative solutions to high volume cycle storage both within private development as well as in public areas?

Representation ID: 33816

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Yes, land is a finite resource and should be used efficiently where at all possible. Such solutions allow people to park closer to where they wish to go rather than having sprawling cycle parking.

Question 31: What additional factors should we also be considering to encourage cycling use (e.g. requiring new office buildings to include secure cycle parking, shower facilities and lockers)?

Representation ID: 33817

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

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.

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Question 33: what sort of innovative measures could be used to improve links between the Cambridge North Station and destinations like the Science Park?

Representation ID: 33819

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The principal option is to utilise autonomous vehicles; in particular, the Guided Busway. This is underused and offers an off-line route. A route that also included the Cambridge Science Park loop road would be able to accommodate autonomous vehicles in the foreseeable future as a Level 4 Autonomous vehicle.
More land available at the Station for cycle hub parking, including for electric bikes.

Question 34: Are there specific types of employment spaces that we should seek to support in this area?

Representation ID: 33820

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Employment space should be within the Science and Technology sector or clearly be ancillary or support it. Other B Class employment could be located elsewhere in and around the City. To achieve a world-class Innovation District it needs a strong brand and identity, having too many not complimentary uses would weaken that brand when seen in a competitive global market.

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The policy framework should be flexible to allow for such developments. Policy should not try and restrict the market, but rather be focussed on achieving the overarching aim to create high-quality place underpinned by the Science and Technology cluster.

Question 37: Are there particular uses that should be retained in the area or moved elsewhere?

Representation ID: 33822

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

This is a matter for those landowners, but the premise should be working to the principle that employment space should be within the Science and Technology sector or clearly be ancillary or support it. Other B Class employment could be located elsewhere in and around the City. To achieve a world-class Innovation District it needs a strong brand and identity, having too many non-complimentary uses would weaken that brand when seen in a competitive global market.

Question 38: Should the AAP require a mix of dwelling sizes and in particular, some family sized housing?

Representation ID: 33824

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Trinity College Cambridge would be supportive of such an approach. Housing range and choice is important to create a neighbourhood and give the most amount of people the choice of living close to where they work. CSP has a diverse range of employees with an equally diverse need from the housing market.

Question 39: Should the AAP seek provision for housing for essential local workers and/or specific housing provided by employers (i.e. tethered accommodation outside of any affordable housing contribu

Representation ID: 33825

Received: 25/03/2019

Respondent: Trinity College

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The greater success of the North East area will be achieved if people do live and work in the neighbourhood. Whether this needs to be tethered housing is not yet clear, but the aspiration for what that seeks to achieve is supported.
