Welcome to the Draft North East Cambridge Area Action Plan consultation!

This consultation runs from 9am Monday 27th July 2020 to 5pm Monday 5th October 2020.


What can you comment on?

Vision and our ten big questions

The Vision page contains a summary of the proposals and ten big questions we would like everyone to answer. You can complete all or as many of the questions as you wish.

Context, objectives and proposed policies

The other sections set out the context, the strategic objectives, and the proposed policies that will shape what can be built in the area, where, and how. These include technical standards and other criteria. Once the Plan is adopted, all planning applications in the area will have to show that they comply with these policies, before they are granted consent.

You can comment on these sections and the policies within them:

On each policy page we set out:

  • What you told us about the topic in previous consultations
  • How we have taken your comments into account
  • What the proposed policy is
  • Why we are doing this
  • What evidence has been taken into account when developing the policy
  • How we will monitor whether this policy is successful.

We have compiled a full list of policies for reference as well as a list of Acronyms and a Glossary.
