Draft North East Cambridge Area Action Plan

Policy 4a: Water Efficiency

Representation ID: 54707

Received: 05/10/2020

Respondent: Cam & Ely Ouse Catchment Partnership

Representation Summary:

Cambridge is a global city and a centre for world research and development, particularly in the fields of health and life sciences. As such, the Cam and Ely Ouse Catchment Partnership recognises the need for growth planned within the North East Cambridge Area Action Plan. However, Cambridge faces significant water challenges and any water committed to supplying development within the North East Cambridge Area Action Plan will be being taken from an environment currently under pressure. The Cam and Ely Ouse Catchment Partnership therefore fully supports the use of the most stringent water efficiency standards for both residential and non-residential development, considering the 80 litres/person/day standard outlined in Policy 4a as the necessary target to work towards site sustainability.

Representation ID: 54716

Received: 05/10/2020

Representation Summary:

The Cam and Ely Ouse Catchment Partnership supports the requirement for suitable reassurance to be given prior to development granting that no resulting deterioration in water quality will occur post development, as outlined in Policy 4b. Where possible we determine the aspiration should be for any development to support improvements to existing water quality where schemes allow.
