An archaeological survey has been undertaken in support of application S/1025/19/IP, a copy of which is submitted in support if the assessment. It demonstrates that matters of archaeology are not a constraint to development of the area of land shared between the above application and the present SHELLA. It is considered that a scheme could be suitable designed to ensure the character and appearance of the Swavesey Conservation area would be pre3served. The site falls almost entirely within Flood Zone 1.

Enquiries received

There is market attractiveness of the site being on the settlement boundary in the rural village of Newton. The site does not encroach on the Cambridge Green Belt. Within the village of Newton there are a number of services such as a village pub, sports and social club, a church and other small businesses. There is a bus stop opposite the War Memorial that runs regularly to Cambridge, Fowlmere and Barley. The settlement is a short distance from larger settlements such as Harston which is located 2km from the site. Harston contains Harston & Newton Primary School, Doctors surgery, Post Office, Village Hall and other small businesses and facilities. In addition, Foxton is 2.5 km from the site and contains similar facilities such as a Primary School, small business and enterprises, a train station (that runs regularly to Cambridge and London Kings Cross) and some recreation facilities.

No

Reason 1) Newton is identified as an Infill Village in the Adopted Core Strategy DPD 2007, where Policy ST/7 states that development is normally limited to schemes of not more than 2 dwellings within the village framework. The proposal was rejected for a number of reasons: • Located outside the settlement boundary; • Poor services and facilities in Newton; • Lack of employment opportunities; • Poor local footpaths, cycle ways and public transport. Reason 2) Insufficient information has been submitted to demonstrate the proposal would not increase the risk of flooding to the site and surrounding area. The proposal is therefore considered contrary to policy NE/11 of the Local Development Framework 2007.

Nothing chosen

The proposed scheme would result in the residential development of a brownfield site and would make the most efficient use of land, which is a diminishing resource. It would reduce pressure to bring forwards new housing on greenfield site outside of village frameworks where sites are frequently less sustainably located. The scheme would be constructed in a manner which meets the stringent current minimum sustainable construction methodologies as set out in the most recent building regulations, thereby reducing energy expenditure and minimising carbon emissions. The site is clearly sustainably located in relation to Meldreth and would discourage the use of the private car. Meldreth is a sustainable settlement with numerous service and facilities in walking distance and near others further afield readily accessible by sustainable means. The scheme would result in an improvement to the appearance of the site, though the removal of existing site buildings and the low-quality boundary finishes which presently appear incongruous in the street scene. Lastly, the proposal will be conforming use in relation to the adjacent residential neighbourhood. It would result in removing the no-conforming B8-storage and distribution use from the site and will reduce from the local highway network articulated lorries arriving and departing from the site to the benefits of residents of Meldreth and the surrounding areas. The present scheme would remove possible amenity issues crated by noise generation from the lawful existing use of the site at anti-social hours, which has been report to the authority.

At a housing density of 30 dph the site would be capable of delivering at least 27 units. Dwellings would comprise a combination of apartments, and semi and detached.

The St Johns Innovation Park is a key employment site in that area now known as North East Cambridge (NEC) and it is the case that the College and its advisors have played an important and significant role in the various workshops that have taken place this year in respect of the future development of the Park and in the wider context of the NEC. A concept masterplan has been put forward by the College’s project team and has been considered in the context of the NEC Workshops and indeed is the subject of a pre-application enquiry which is currently with SCDC. It is the case that the site has currently two main existing vehicular accesses serving most of the Park with a direct access off Cowley Road for the Jeffreys Building. A number of pedestrian and cycleway access points exist around the site , the most recent of which has been constructed to access the Maurice Wilkes Building. In respect of the implications of new development , in the context whereby no new parking is coming forward then it is entirely appropriate that no changes are needed to the access points. However in view of the longer term proposals for the whole of the Park having regard to intensification of use, meaning the demolition of buildings and the erection of new buildings, then the College intend to re-assess access points to ensure that there is consistency and compatibility with NEC proposals for the wider area.

No

No

No

As an established employment site, the site has existing access to all the necessary utilities. Clearly as with any development coming forward within the NEC area, within which the Innovation Park sits, provision will need to be made for the upgrading of services commensurate with projected levels of growth. In terms of the crossing of the site by utilities, we are unaware of any constraints imposed by any utilities that would prevent development coming forward. Overhead pylons are evident on the southern fringe of the Park but these in any case cross over open land south and west of the Maurice Wilkes building.

There was a dilapidated dwelling located within the site, known as Whitefields, which is to be demolished this year due to health and safety concerns with regards to trespassing (LPA Ref: S/2921/18/PN).

The site has been the subject of a number of planning applications including a golf course club house (LPA Ref: S/2257/01/F) and a hotel (LPA Ref: S/1633/96/O, S/0778/97/RM, S/1883/99/O).

In May 2015 the College submitted the enclosed document to SCDC as part of a pre-application enquiry following the acknowledgement that the site was the subject of an extant consent for a major hotel development and golf course at that time., The consent has since lapsed but reflects the acceptability of principle of development of that site. The enclosed document looks at the promotion of the site for residential development and put forward a low density approach of 6 large dwellings set in spacious grounds and also a higher density approach whereby some 34 dwellings could come forward.

Does the site have access to key utilities? Will provision need to be made or capacity created or reinforced to enable development (this includes mains water supply, mains sewerage, electricity supply, gas supply and broadband internet)? Is the site crossed or adjacent to a key utility such as a pipeline or by pylons? It is the case that a single large residential property existed on site until it was destroyed by fire and was obviously served by the major utilities at that time . Certainly the granting of the permission for the large hotel and golf course facility would have generated the need for the upgrading of facilities. In the light of the scale of residential development proposed we consider that existing facilities would need to be reinforced to address the new development.

The site lies within the Green Belt and adjacent to the settlement framework. The eastern boundary of the site at the High Street is designated as ‘Important Countryside Frontage’. A section of the western side of the site lies within Flood Zone 2 and 3 with the eastern section of the site lying within Flood Zone 1. Any development proposals coming forward would look to alleviate any of the potential flooding issues at the site. The provision for public open space on the site would be located within the Flood Zone 3 section of the site to the west. Whilst the residential development proposals would be focussed within the section of the site which falls into Flood Zone 1; where residential development should be directed. There are no heritage assets within the site, however, there are two Grade II Listed Buildings within proximity of the site, 3 although there is existing residential development between the assets and the site. There are no ecological designations on or in proximity to the site. There is no known contamination at the site.

It is considered that the development proposals could deliver numerous tangible social, economic and environmental benefits to the local area, including: ● Delivery of affordable housing, including an element of build to rent. This would allow people to up scale and downsize subject to their needs over time whilst also meeting affordable housing need within the District; ● Locating residential development adjacent to one of the village’s largest employment sites, Melbourn Science Park. Melbourn Science Park has recently been granted permission for a substantial extension and provides a unique employment source which is of great importance to Melbourn and the surrounding area. The development would provide people with the opportunity of living and working in the same village and encourage sustainable modes of transport; ● The delivery of a 2km landscaped walking route which is easily accessible to current and future residents and employees of the village and creates a looped route at the eastern end of Melbourn. It will create a new recreation asset for the village and provide a walking opportunity for those that may have otherwise considered the need to travel to SSSIs for that activity, therefore protecting nearby SSSI’s from increased recreational pressure; and ● The delivery of a pedestrian route from the West of the site along ‘the Drift’ which links to Moat Lane. This will provide new residents with enhanced pedestrian connectivity to the adjacent Science Park and the Melbourn High Street, encouraging the use of sustainable modes of transport; and ● Supporting Melbourn’s economy, including local shops and services. The Economic Benefits Statement submitted with the outline application, found that there would also be a significant and positive impact upon Melbourn's economy with residents of the new development supporting existing local shops and services within the village. This benefit is recognised in the Delegation Report at page 30. As a result of the proposed development, approximately £248,000 per annum is expected to be spent at local shops and services, potentially supporting an additional three jobs.

Up to 300 residential units. This is based on applying an average density of 30 residential units per hectare, allowing for landscaping and open space.

Two new vehicular and pedestrian accesses to the Site are proposed from Cambridge Road. In addition, a pedestrian way is proposed from the western corner of the Site to Moat Lane.

The site would deliver much needed housing and affordable housing and public open space in an area very well related to existing facilities

Yes (Please give details)

The site has been reviewed from a highways network perspective and the Hopkins Homes’ proposal would create a safe adopted highway access through to Long Road. The site has good access to the strategic road network with both the M11 and A428 within 3km. The Site fronts a Byway Open to All Traffic along the eastern boundary (Byway No.7 Comberton); such a highway, whilst being unmade, provides legal right of access for all modes of transport in the same vein as a fully maintained highway, but is lacking in full physical infrastructure. It is proposed to gain access from the existing Byway which will be upgraded to create an estate road to meet the required standards of the County Council as Highway Authority. The first 104m of the Byway has been made up to form a standard estate road with a single footway, street lighting/ drainage associated with the development 'Thornbury'; a further unmade length of byway (approximately 86m) exists between the metalled carriageway and the site northern boundary. For the avoidance of doubt, the entirety of this road is part of the site submission proposal. As the entire approach road forms part of the public highway, there is no legal impediment to creating an extension and upgrading of the metalled carriageway, footway, street lighting and drainage for the intervening currently unmade length of byway. Thus, the Site will properly cater for pedestrians/ cyclists and vehicular traffic associated with the potential development in an entirely safe and conventional manner i.e. 5.0 - 5.5m carriageway and 1.8m footway Refer to attached plans and Supplementary Statement.

Nothing chosen

The benefits of the proposed development are wide-ranging and will promote the social, economic and environmental objectives of the NPPF. The site is located in a highly sustainable location, adjacent to the existing development framework for Ickleton and existing services and facilities as well as being accessible to Cambridge and Saffron Walden. Development at the site would promote the delivery of housing and continued economic growth in the region.

It is considered that access would be taken off Coploe Road, as the access point off Grange Road is constrained by the position of the motorway bridge and restricted access off a layby. Coploe Road is straight at the point of access and there would be suitable visibility to the east and west.

No

The site is flat with no significant changes in levels. This means that development would not be prevented in whole or part.

The site comprises agricultural/amenity land and may have some biodiversity interest. Any planning application would be subject to an ecological survey and additional protected species surveys, if deemed necessary. The site comprises agricultural/amenity land, which is unlikely to be subject to contamination. Part of the site is in Flood Zone 3, and this small portion of the site could be excluded from the area subject to built development. Any planning application would be accompanied by an archaeological assessment, but there is no reason to believe that this could limit or prevent development at the site. The site comprises agricultural land which is clearly demarcated by boundaries and residential development. The site would offer a natural extension to the built form of Ickleton and would have limited impact on the character and setting of the wider area. Planting/landscaping and open paces could seek to mitigate any impact on the wider countryside. The M11 motorway lies to the west of the site and any development would need to undertake an assessment of noise impact on future occupiers. There is some distance between the site and the motorway and sufficient space for mitigation measures, such as acoustic fending, if required. There are not any trees of particular merit at the site and none are subject to a Tree Preservation Order.

The site is located adjacent to the existing development framework for Ickleton and it is considered that connections could be made to existing services - including electricity, gas, sewerage, telecommunications and water.

The site is within the ownership of the promoter.

Enquiries received

We consider that Ickleton is an attractive place to live and has a buoyant housing market. As such, we consider that a developer could easily be found to deliver the site. We are not aware of any legal constraints which could delay or prohibit development.

No

Flood risk and drainage: The site is in Flood Zone 1, which is at the lowest risk of flooding. As such, residential development is appropriate in this location. Any planning application would be accompanied by a Drainage Strategy which would outline how surface and foul water would be managed. Green Belt: The site is not located in the Green Belt, which lies to the east. The site is well screened by boundary vegetation on all sides. Given that the site is dominated by built development, it is not considered that development at the site would impact on the setting of the Green Belt. Heritage: The site is not located adjacent to any heritage assets, including listed buildings or conservation areas, which could restrict the scope and extent of development at the site. Any development at the site may need to be accompanied by an archaeological assessment, but there is no reason to believe that this could limit or prevent development at the site.

No

The site is located adjacent to the existing development framework for Great Shelford and it is considered that connections could be made to existing services – including electricity, gas, sewerage, telecommunications and water.
