The plan is to stage the development of the 3 areas over the next 10+ years The first phase would be the self build area (marked 8938 on the plan) followed by the larger area of market and low cost housing.

Enquiries received

There is a substantial waiting list with South Cambs Council for self build plots currently so the first phase would help address that demand. The second phase would provide the low cost housing that all villages lack to retain local young people as well as offering quality market housing for people working in the ever growing University spin-off businesses in the area. The final phase will see the construction of low cost dwellings for the elderly so they can remain part of the village along with more quality market housing.

Economic Objectives In terms of the economic objectives the proposal will unquestionably give rise to significant employment during the construction and operational phases of the development. Future occupiers of the scheme are likely to use local services and facilities within the new development and adjacent service area making a positive contribution to vitality and viability. In addition, the commercial and business provided on the site will bring long term economic opportunities. The benefits of this development will also spread off site in terms of servicing of the businesses and meeting the Combined Authority’s vision of doubling economic output over 25 years. If job growth and economic development do not occur – then many of the other aims of the Greater Cambridge Plan will not be realised. Social Objectives The social objectives of this scheme are the provision of businesses which will widen the employment bases and not be solely focussed on high-tech industries. This is of importance with the redevelopment of existing industrial sites within Cambridge for high-tech and research uses and the proposals to redevelop Marshalls Airport. Environmental Objectives The environmental objectives include the sustainability credentials of the site in terms of the redevelopment of previously developed land. The development of this site will need to be landscape led which will allow significant new habitats to be created and biodiversity enhancements. This will not only help to mitigate the visual impacts of the development but also enhance an agricultural landscape devoid of natural features. The creation of new habitats will be an important factor in offsetting the harm which the development will have to the character and openness of the area. This development will also allow the buildings to be designed to incorporate energy efficiency measures, including the use of solar panels and photovoltaic cells on the buildings. The parking areas will also be designed to allow for the introduction of electrical charging points.

87,000m2

There are no physical or environmental or other limitations which would constrain the development of this site. Further detail is provided regarding the use of the site and details as to how the landscape impacts could be mitigated. Previously developed land This area of land should be considered as previously developed (brownfield land) and the Council should give weight to this fact in assessing the suitability of this site for development. The site also immediately adjoins an existing service area, with a business park located on the northern side of the A14. Landscape Impact The landscape impact of the proposed development has been considered, although it is acknowledged that a Landscape Visual Impact Assessment will need to be produced to demonstrate how the impacts of development can be appropriately addressed. The principal objective is that this scheme must be landscape led and it is clear that a considerable amount of the site will need to be allocated for landscaping and bio-diversity enhancements. This is of particular note due to the open nature and topography of the site which will require blocks of planting to break up development and create views into and out of the site

Yes (Please give details)

Access It is envisaged that main point of vehicular access to the site would be via the existing access from Boxworth Road which has been designed for use by HGV’s. This in turn connects to the A14. An allocation of this magnitude could support enhancements to public transport, and a potential option is to provide shuttle bus from the site to link to the Guided Bus Route to the north of Swavesey assisting in providing a viable alternative to the private car to access this site. It is clear that further work will be required in conjunction with Cambridgeshire County Council and other bodies to agree measures to address the strategic transport impacts of this site.

No

Topography The site is generally level and open and landscaping will need to be used to mitigate the adverse impacts of development. The master planning of the site will need particular care to ensure that the constraints and opportunities associated with the site are taken into account. However, it is clear from initial work undertaken that the topography of the site is not an impediment to development.

No

Bio-diversity The site comprises previously developed land, and whilst it could be considered to be brownfield land, the development/infrastructure of the site is new and any bio-diversity interest at the site is likely to have been lost/reduced. However, the development of this site will allow for significant biodiversity enhancements to be achieved and new habitats created within and on the periphery of the site. Contaminated Land The site comprises previously developed land, although given that it has been developed recently, contamination at the site is unlikely to be an issue. Activities at the site are well managed and monitored and any spillages or environmental events would have been managed and mitigated. However, it is recognised that the site will need to be subject to an appropriate contamination assessment. Flood Risk and Drainage The entirety of the site is within Flood Zone 1. This allocation will need to be subject to a flood risk assessment and surface water drainage strategy to confirm that this site and the adjacent sites can be drained in a sustainable manner and will not increase flood risk downstream. It is also clear that there is sufficient land available to provide on-site mitigation and attenuation if required. Heritage An analysis of the constraints maps of the Council have revealed that this proposal will not have an impact on the setting of listed buildings or the character and appearance of any Conservation Areas. Development of the site for the compound is likely to have been subject to an archaeological investigation and any items/features of archaeological interest have been removed or destroyed during construction. As such we do not consider that an archaeological investigation would be required prior to the development of the site for employment uses.

The site fully serviced at the current time. It is recognised that this development may increase pressure on services and utilities and these will need to be reinforced and upgraded in a coordinated manner.

The site is attracting interest from promoters who are interested in delivering development in this location. There are no known legal constraints which could delay or prohibit development. Deliverability The site is within the sole ownership of the landowner and it is considered that the development at the site could be delivered in its entirety within 10 years. The site is brownfield and there are there are no constraints at the site which could prohibit delivery within the time period. In fact, the allocation of this site will also help to address the pressing need for this type of facility within South Cambridgeshire whilst providing benefits to the wider area. Work undertaken to date has confirmed that the site is viable and deliverable.

Economic Objectives In terms of the economic objectives the proposal will unquestionably give rise to significant employment during the construction and operational phases of the development. Future occupiers of the scheme are likely to use local services and facilities within the new development making a positive contribution to vitality and viability. In addition, the community uses provided on and the adjoining site will bring long term economic opportunities. Another particular economic benefit is the provision of social housing. The benefits of this development will also spread off site in terms of public transport enhancement and servicing of the proposed dwellings and businesses. Social Objectives The social objectives of this scheme are the provision of circa 200 dwellings. The proposal will look to contribute towards the provision of the public transport corridor and the enhancement of pedestrian and cycle links. The provision of circa 200 dwellings will help the Council to achieve a deliverable five-year housing land supply and allow a full range of houses, including bungalows, flats, sheltered housing to the meet the needs of families, young couples, single people and retirees. Bungalows and sheltered housing are particularly suited to the ageing population and those with limited mobility. The provision of circa 80 affordable dwellings will unquestionably make a positive contribution to housing affordability. The provision of 80 dwellings will also help meet the objectives of paragraph 59 of the NPPF. The development will also allow for the contributions or works towards the enhancement of primary and secondary schools and improvements to public transport which will not only meet the needs of the development but the wider area of South Cambridgeshire. Environmental Objectives The Environmental Objectives include the sustainability credentials of the site in terms of access to local services and facilities, which will be provided as a consequence of this development. The planned onsite and offsite enhancements to cycling, bus and pedestrian infrastructure will help to meet the environmental objectives. In terms of cycling it must be recognised that this site is within close proximity to Addenbrookes and Astra Zenica, with the provision of appropriate infrastructure, including the proposed public transport corridor allowing a modal shift from the private car. This site is a clear example of a site where consideration should be given to car-free developments or a residential/schemes with very low parking standards in suitable, The development of this site will need to be landscape led which will allow significant new habitats to be created and biodiversity enhancements. This will not only help to mitigate the visual impacts of the development but also enhance an agricultural landscape devoid of natural features. The creation of new habitats will be an important factor in offsetting the harm which the development will have to the character and appearance of the Green Belt.

200 dwellings, significant part of the site will comprise open space and strategic landscaping

Landscape Impact The landscape impact of the proposed development has been considered, although it is acknowledged that a Landscape Visual Impact Assessment will need to be produced to demonstrate how the impacts of development can be appropriately addressed. The principal objective is that this scheme must be landscape led and it is clear that a considerable amount of the site will need to be allocated for landscaping, public open space and bio-diversity enhancements. The intention is to provide significant landscaping and open space in the more elevated north eastern part of the site, level with the extent of development at Chalk Hill to the south east of the site. In addition, blocks of planting will be used to break up development and create views into and out of the site.

No

A new access will be created from Gog Magog Way. An allocation of this magnitude will support significant enhancements to public transport, and all dwellings can be within 400m of the proposed transport hubs and bus stops. The enhancement of these services could also improve the accessibility of existing towns and villages, with the existing populations of these settlements being too low to justify either the expansion of or the provision of new services. The entire scheme will allow the opportunities for contributions to be sought towards the proposed public transport corridors and the hubs at Stapleford and Great Shelford. Allied to this, contributions will also be required towards improvements to both cycle and pedestrian link, in particular the route to Addenbrookes and Astra Zenica. The actual form of the development will also need to be designed to give priority to pedestrians and cyclists, including landscaped and attractive off-road routes. It is clear that further work will be required in conjunction with Cambridgeshire County Council and other bodies to agree measures to address the strategic transport impacts of this site.

No

The site is gently undulating and open and landscaping will need to be used to mitigate the adverse impact of development, particularly in the more elevated north eastern part of the site.

It is clear that a considerable amount of the site will need to be allocated for landscaping, public open space and bio-diversity enhancements. A significant amount of landscaping will be planted on the elevated part of the site, which will be level with the extent of development at Chalk Hill.

Future occupiers of the scheme are likely to use local services and facilities within the new development making a positive contribution to vitality and viability. In addition, the medical and care facilities provided on the site will bring long term economic opportunities. The benefits of this development will also spread off site in terms of public transport enhancement and servicing of the proposed dwellings and businesses. Social Objectives The social objectives of this scheme are the provision of a brand-new medical facility to meet the needs of the existing and proposed population of Great Shelford and ensure that all residents have access to a purpose-built facility. The proposal will also provide a facility which meets the specific needs of the elderly and less able and from the research undertaken there is clearly a severe shortage of such facilities within South Cambridgeshire. The proposals will also look to contribute towards the provision of the public transport corridor and the enhancement of pedestrian and cycle links. The provision of a care village will assist the Council in achieving a deliverable five-year housing land supply and meet the needs of the elderly and less able population and retirees. This proposal will also help to free up market housing as residents downsize. Bungalows and sheltered housing which will form part of the development are particularly suited to the ageing population and those with limited mobility. The development will also allow for works towards the enhancement of the medical facilities in Great Shelford and assist in addressing the acute need for care and retirement facilities in South Cambridgeshire. Environmental Objectives The Environmental Objectives include the sustainability credentials of the site in terms of access to local services and facilities, which will be provided as a consequence of this development. The planned onsite and offsite enhancements to cycling, bus and pedestrian infrastructure will help to meet the environmental objectives. In terms of cycling it must be recognised that this site is within close proximity to Addenbrookes and Astra Zenica, with the provision of appropriate infrastructure, including the proposed public transport corridor allowing a modal shift from the private car. This site is a clear example of a site where consideration should be given to car-free developments or a residential/schemes with very low parking standards in suitable, The development of this site will need to be landscape led which will allow significant new habitats to be created and biodiversity enhancements. This will not only help to mitigate the visual impacts of the development but also enhance an agricultural landscape devoid of natural features. The creation of new habitats will be an important factor in offsetting the harm which the development will have to the character and openness of the Green Belt.

Circa 1600m2 - Doctors surgery Circa 150-200 dwellings/units within the care village

There are no known physical or environmental constraints to the development of the site. The landscape impact of the proposed development has been considered, although it is acknowledged that a Landscape Visual Impact Assessment will need to be produced to demonstrate how the impacts of development can be appropriately addressed. The principal objective is that this scheme must be landscape led and it is clear that a considerable amount of the site will need to be allocated for landscaping, public open space and bio-diversity enhancements. This is of particular note due to the open nature and topography of the site which will require blocks of planting to break up development and create views into and out of the site.

Yes (Please give details)

Access It is envisaged that main point of vehicular access to both the medical centre and care village will be from Mingle Lane, with a pedestrian and cycleway being provided from Hinton Way. An allocation of this magnitude will support significant enhancements to public transport, and all dwellings can be within 400m of the proposed transport hubs and bus stops. The enhancement of these services could also improve the accessibility of existing towns and villages, with the existing populations of these settlements being too low to justify either the expansion of or the provision of new services. The entire scheme will allow the opportunities for contributions to be sought towards the proposed public transport corridors and the hubs at Stapleford and Great Shelford. Allied to this, contributions will also be required towards both cycle and pedestrian links, in particular the route to Addenbrookes and Astra Zenica. The actual form of the development will also need to be designed to give priority to pedestrians and cyclists, including landscaped and attractive off-road routes. It is clear that further work will be required in conjunction with Cambridgeshire County Council and other bodies to agree measures to address the strategic transport impacts of this site.

Bio-diversity The majority of the site is used for intensive agricultural production and would appear to offer limited habitats for protected species. An ecological assessment will be required, and the biodiversity enhancements provided in relation to this site will need to acknowledge the findings of this assessment. It is clear that the development of this site will have the potential to enhance both site-specific biodiversity and the wider area. Contaminated Land The majority of the site comprises greenfield land which is unlikely to be contaminated. However, it is recognised that the site will need to be subject to an appropriate contamination assessment. Flood Risk and Drainage The entirety of the site is within Flood Zone 1. This allocation will need to be subject to a flood risk assessment and surface water drainage strategy to confirm that this site and the adjacent sites can be drained in a sustainable manner and will not increase flood risk downstream. It is also clear that there is sufficient land available to provide on-site mitigation and attenuation if required. Heritage An analysis of the constraints maps of the Council have revealed that this proposal will not have an impact on the setting of listed buildings or the character and appearance of any Conservation Areas. Any development will need to be subject to an appropriate archaeological assessment to confirm the archaeological interest of this site and propose appropriate mitigation if required

1.1 These representations are made by Axis Land Partnerships (“Axis”) and in response to the Greater Cambridge Local Plan Issues and Options 2020 consultation. These representations follow those previously submitted in respect of the 2019 Call for Sites consultation. 1.2 These responses set out the support of Land to the North East of Whippletree Road, Whittlesford (hereafter “the Site”) for a sustainable extension of the existing settlement of Whittlesford. 1.3 The Site, although in green belt, is well located on the edge of Whittlesford, a Rural Centre with a greater level of services, facilities and employment compared with other villages in South Cambridgeshire. It is considered that Whittlesford is a sustainable location for residential growth as part of the new Local Plan and sensible sites should be released from green belt when looking at comprehensive schemes. 1.4 The Site would bring a number of benefits to support the delivery of a sound and sustainable spatial strategy as part of the Local Plan, including: ● Delivery of affordable housing; ● Locating residential development within a sustainable village. The Site is located within walking and cycling distance of the village centre, reducing the need to travel by private car; ● A landowner who wishes to work with stakeholders to shape a proposal which meets the needs of the village, for example housing types and tenures, open space provision; ● Supporting Whittlesford’s local economy, including shops and services; and, Site Location 2.1 Whittlesford is a village on the Granta branch of the River Cam located approximately 7 miles to the south of Cambridge. It is situated one mile to junction10 of the M11 which provides good road links to London and the north. 2.2 The nearest train station to the settlement is Whittesford Parkway, approximately 1mile to the south east of the Site. This railway station provides a main line service to London Liverpool St, accessible within an hour, and Cambridge, reachable within approximately 15 minutes. 2.3 The location is sustainable when considering access to and from the Site by modes of travel other than the private car, particularly walking and cycling. Education, local amenities and local centres of employment are within walking and cycling distances. There are bus stops close to the Site providing connections to main urban centres in the area making bus travel a viable option for residents. 2.4 The Site is approximately 1km east of the village centre and is within walking distance of a range of amenities and schools. Planning History 2.5 The Site has no relevant planning history.

Economic Objectives In terms of the economic objectives the proposal will unquestionably give rise to significant employment during the construction and operational phases of the development. Future occupiers of the scheme are likely to use local services and facilities within the new development making a positive contribution to vitality and viability. In addition, the education, shopping, community and B1 uses provided on this site will bring long term economic opportunities. Another particular economic benefit is the provision of social housing. The benefits of this development will also spread off site in terms of public transport enhancement and servicing of the proposed dwellings and businesses. Social Objectives The social objectives of this scheme are the provision of circa 1,500 dwellings. The proposal will also allow the requisite highway improvements from the A11 to access this facility. This issue is explored in more detail in the access section of this report. This site will also help to create the northern access to the Garden Community if this scheme comes to fruition. The provision of circa 1,500 dwellings will help the Council to achieve a deliverable five-year housing land supply and allow a full range of houses, including bungalows, flats, sheltered housing to the meet the needs of families, young couples, single people and retirees. Bungalows and sheltered housing are particularly suited to the ageing population and those with limited mobility. The provision of circa 600 dwellings will unquestionably make a positive contribution to housing affordability. The provision of 600 dwellings will also help meet the objectives of paragraph 59 of the NPPF. The development will also allow for the contributions or works towards the provision of primary and secondary schools and improvements to public transport which will not only meet the needs of the development but the wider area of South Cambridgeshire. Environmental Objectives The Environmental Objectives include the sustainability credentials of the site in terms of access to local services and facilities, which will be provided as a consequence of this development. The planned onsite and offsite enhancements to cycling, rail, bus and pedestrian infrastructure will help to meet the environmental objectives. In terms of cycling it must be recognised that this site is within close proximity to Welcome Trust, Granta Park, Babraham Institute and Addenbrookes, with the provision of appropriate infrastructure, including the extensions to the proposed public transport corridor allowing a modal shift from the private car. The indicative design of the proposal has been landscape led which will allow significant new habitats to be created and biodiversity enhancements. This will not only help to mitigate the visual impacts of the development but also enhance an agricultural landscape devoid of natural features.

1500 dwellings circa 600m2 of community and leisure facilities 150m2 retail facility

There are no known physical or environmental impacts which would prohibit development., although particular attention will need to addressed. The landscape impact of the proposed development has been considered via the Landscape Visual Impact Assessment which has been produced to accompany the February 2019 site submission. The principal objective is that this scheme must be landscape led and It is clear that a considerable amount of the site will need to be allocated for landscaping, public open space and bio-diversity enhancements. This is of particular note due to the undulating topography of the site and the need to use blocks of planting to break up development and create views into and out of the site. This LVIA provides further advice regarding this issue and advises how the development scheme could be designed to minimise the landscape impact and mitigation measures required to ameliorate the impact of the proposal.

Yes (Please give details)

An existing vehicular access will be provided via Newmarket Road, which also provides access to the A11. However, an allocation of this magnitude will support significant enhancements to public transport, and all dwellings can be within 400m of bus stops. The enhancement of these services could also improve the accessibility of existing towns and villages, with the existing populations of these settlements being too low to justify either the expansion of or the provision of new services. The entire scheme will allow the opportunities for contributions to be sought to link the site to the Cambridge Guided Busway, potential through route to Great Chesterford Station and a potential interchange (Park and Ride at Granta Park, Abington). Due regard also needs to be given to the findings of the Greater Cambridge Mass Transit Option Assessment (January 2018) which is seeking to provide a mass transit system to allow for a substantial modal shift from car to public transport. This proposal will allow for connections to be made to this system once the precise route and location of stations/interchanges are known. If this rapid transit system is provided it will allow the traffic impacts of this scheme to be further mitigated. The allocation of this site will also allow cycle networks to be extended to important employment sites. The actual form of the development will also need to be designed to give priority to pedestrians and cyclists, including landscaped and attractive off-road routes. It should be noted that although the site has attractive public footpaths, there are no cycle ways across it and the public footpaths are not suitable for cycling – particularly in the winter. It is clear that further work will be required in conjunction with Cambridgeshire County Council and other bodies to agree measures to address the strategic impacts of this site.

Yes (please give details)

Topography As detailed in the landscape visual impact assessment the site is undulating and the topography of the site will need to be used to mitigate adverse impact of development. The master planning of the site will need particular care to ensure that the constraints and opportunities associated with the site are taken into account. However, it is clear from initial work undertaken that the topography of the site is not an impediment to development. Site Capacity It is considered that the site has a capacity of circa 1,500 dwellings. Whilst this 230 hectare site could conceivably accommodate more than a 1,500 dwellings, utilising a density of 30 dwellings per hectare, the level of built development to open space is at a ratio of 21:79. This is in recognition of the findings of the Landscape Visual Impact Assessment and the principal objective that this scheme must be landscape led. It is clear that a considerable amount of the site will need to be allocated for landscaping, public open space and bio-diversity enhancements. This is of particular note due to the undulating topography of the site and the need to use blocks of planting to break up development and create views into and out of the site. Any allocation relating to this site would need to make it clear that the capacity is indicative and that the capacity would be informed by a master planning exercise. This masterplan will also need to demonstrate how this site and the Garden Community scheme (if it occurs) could be integrated

No

Any development will need to be subject to an appropriate archaeological assessment to confirm the archaeological interest of this site and propose appropriate mitigation if required. Public Rights of Way The site is dissected by a public footpath which runs north to south, the route of which will be safeguarded and enhanced as part of these proposals. This could potentially be upgraded to a bridleway. A further footpath is located on the eastern boundary. The development of this site will allow a more comprehensive footpath and bridleway network to be provided and allow east to west connections to be created between the existing footpaths. It must also be recognised that there is an existing tunnel under the A11 which will facilitate a safe means of access to the Wellcome institute.

Whilst, there are services and utilities in the vicinity of the site it is recognised that this development will increase pressure on services and utilities and these will need to be reinforced and upgraded in a coordinated manner, to the benefit of all.

Camcycle is not suggesting sites as we remain neutral on the issue of growth. However, we will strongly object to any sites and developments that do not support and integrate with sustainable transport, not only within the site but also in a well-connected way to the wider sustainable transport network. • Development sites must support the sustainable transport goals of shifting the vast majority of everyday travel out of cars and into walking, cycling and public transport. • If it is not possible to produce a realistic Transport Assessment achieving that goal, then the site must be rejected. • It is important that sustainable transport is not only considered within the site but also the connections to the transport network and other sites. • Transport cannot be looked at in a silo. Transport, including cycling, is integral to planning of new developments and must be considered from the very start. • To reduce car usage within the site also requires reducing the amount of land, money and resources devoted to subsidising car ownership and driving (Manville, 2017).

"Cambridge Corn Exchange (58.3%), West Road Concert Hall (15%), and the Junction (7.5%) are the most visited concert venues for main respondents." Only The Junction has direct public transport access. The Corn Exchange is in walking distance, West Road has none. The Corn Exchange's full capacity is 1849 according to https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/media/2490/cambridge-retail-and-leisure-update-2013-with-apps.pdf from 2013 (GVA's report for the city council in 2013).

The Cambridge Corn Exchange has a site area of 0.13 hectares according to the tool at https://www.daftlogic.com/projects-google-maps-area-calculator-tool.htm# while the Cambridge Assessment site has 1.17 ha. This means (subject to a solution for the old Perse Hall listed building, including moving it to another site as was done with the original Catholic Church opposite before the present large mini-cathedral was built in the 1890s) there is a much greater opportunity to build a much larger concert hall with public transport access close by - including both Drummer Street & the railway station in walking distance. The scale of such a building means that the available floor space over multiple floors could be greater than the ground floor area space.

The Grade II listed school hall. There is historical precedence of moving such old buildings from the site to elsewhere - the original Catholic Church on the opposite side of Hills Road was moved to St Ives in the late 1800s to make way for the current church funded by the estate of Yolande Marie Lynn Stephens.

The site is well served by public transport and the cycle network. It is also within walking distance to a local centre and education facilities. It is clear that the site provides an opportunity for a higher density of development than has been achieved at Trumpington Meadows. This would not require tall buildings. Buildings of between 4 to 5 storeys would deliver a high-density community of approximately 750 + units, with active ground floors with workspace and community hubs. This scale of development would sit comfortably into the landscape of the southern fringe. The site is also suitable for a range of employment uses, which could be incorporated into a rich mix of uses.

Up to 36 residential units have been assumed on site to maximise the use of Green Belt release along with maximising a partial Brownfield Site. Although this is above the 15 dwellings stated in Policy S/10 it would make efiicient use of the brownfield site and the Green Belt.

The whole of the site sits within Flood Zone 1, meaning it is 'low risk' of flooding. Made ground was found on the site, due to the Brownfield nature. In addition, asbestos fibres were found which were recommended to be dealt with through landscaping works. The site borders the Thriplow Conservation Area, this was assessed in the attached Heritage Statement. Some of the trees across the site need to be felled. No trees within the site are subject to TPO's. Proposed Mitigation: Site Investigation Report, Heritage Statement and Arboricultural Survey.

Proposed development of up to six homes, accessed from Chiswick End, incorporating an agricultural access to the remainder of the orchard to the north, with landscaping and SUDS features along the front of the site.

Market and affordable housing, Custom or self build housing

Nothing chosen

The development could provide market and self build housing to meet local needs.

There is an area of the site adjacent to Chiswick End which is shown on the Environment Agency website as being vulnerable to flood risk. It is therefore proposed that this area forms a landscaped area which provides SUDS capacity. The access road into the site will go to the north of this landscaped area, curving into the site, and then the homes will be located facing south across the road and the SUDS feature, backing onto the orchard. A flood risk assessment will be undertaken in due course to determine the exact extent of the likely flooding, and the amount of water storage/drainage needed. On this basis, it is likely that up to 6 homes could be accommodated on the site.

Site 47529 map

The site is owned and operated by DB Group (Holdings) Ltd. DB Group’s business was founded in the early 1970s and has been a pioneer in the construction industry since those times. It was originally established to provide specialist sands to industry for cement testing and fuse manufacturing and is still exporting sands all over the world today. The company’s business now further incorporates structural waterproofing and environmentallyfriendly substitutes for cement, for which the Bourn site provides manufacturing and storage infrastructure. DB Group began operating from this site in 2012 following comprehensive works to facilitate the use of the site for their operations (refer to planning permission reference S/1712/12/FL). These works facilitated the relocation of their operations from their former site in Lolworth. This relocation was necessary in order to expand production and increase employment as a result of new developments within the construction industry. The operations and processes which take place on site include the following: - Sand grading – filtering sand to provide different levels of fineness; - Production of additives used in concrete mixes – blending of powders from silo storage; -Warehousing – receipt and dispatch of goods either manufactured or purchased off site for resale. These uses, in combination, amount to B2 General Industrial use.

N/A

S/4229/19/LD – Certificate of Lawful Development for existing development of four silos (2 x 45m3 silos and 2 x 12m3 silos) S/1712/12/FL – Change of use of the site and buildings to a B2 use, with ancillary B1 (a), B1 (b), and B8 use, and works including demolition of a single storey ancillary workshop, refurbishment of remaining buildings including new entrance foyer to the main building, and erection of a new warehouse along with associated external works (part retrospective).

Previously developed

Continued B2 General Industrial use. DB Group are currently exploring a number of expansion opportunities on site. One of these is a volumetric truck operator to supply concrete directly to customers. Activity at the existing site associated with this would be carried out externally and would entail filling the various hoppers on the vehicle. This would require at least one further silo on site and the use of a mechanical loader to take aggregates and sand from external storage bays. A further opportunity exists in the production, cutting and finishing of precast concrete products. This would require concrete mixing equipment, supplied from bagged and/ or additional bulk silo stocks, as well as the use of stone-cutting saws.

Employment (B2) general industrial

Nothing chosen

DB Group currently employs 21 full time staff on site with a further 40 being primarily field based and visiting the site once a week. The company’s expansion plans have the potential to create a further 16 jobs on site in the relatively near term and potentially more in the future.

Meredeth is a group village as defined in the Local Plan where policies allow for development of up to 15 dwellings on Brownfield sites. However, the proposed site offers significant benefits in respect of sustainable public transport solutions with regular mainline rail connection to Cambridge and Royston. It is therefore considered that a larger scheme of up to 30 dwellings would be appropriate for this site. The provision of affordable housing within a scheme would provide significant benefit to the local community. It is noted that the most recent Housing Needs Survey for Meldreth, undertaken in 2017 by Cambridgeshire Acre, identified a need for 45 households in affordable housing.

Vacant land around housing

Not known.

No substantive recent planning applications as bulk of site presently not appropriately zoned.

Vacant land around developed housing. Mainly greenfield.

Description of your proposed development: Suitable for infill plots to areas around housing and for development of houses on fields. Low density development is envisaged on the field areas and some land may be available as green open space (or leisure/recreation space). It would be possible to integrate some small office facilities into any development (applicant has had interest from local people for this sort of facility that would be a suitable mix with residential). Owners would intend the development to be heavily focused on renewable energy. Any development would be Gas free with domestic heating and water services fed by Ground Source utilising open space land left undeveloped. PV panels would be relied upon for ‘clean’ electricity where possible. This is seen as an excellent opportunity to plan new build properties without using conventional gas boilers as is the Governments initiative. The site benefits from a potential surplus of land that would be ideal for Ground Source loops.

Market and affordable housing, Employment (B1) office, Employment (B1b) research and development

Public open space, Recreation and leisure

Affordable homes and lower priced houses could be suitable for relatives of families living locally. Part of the site could be provided as open space or recreation area for local people. Research, or other appropriate offices, could be integrated into the site where suitable (B Class) uses can be adjacent to residential. Low energy housing using the latest technology would be a bonus to any area and should be welcomed. Development would be planned to better Building Regulation targets and to utilise PV and other renewables whilst providing excellent insulation standards.

It is felt that this site could be developed in many different ways. If development is confined to the immediate locality of the existing houses then, perhaps 15 houses could be built. It is envisaged that any development would be of a low density and could retain a larger than average open space (which could be given a community use). This would mean that, were the whole site to be developed, then this might provide 70-80 homes but leave green spaces to appropriate positions. A potential 250m2 – 500m2 could be provided for employment space.

The proposed development would provide additional housing and affordable housing for Cambridge, as well as potential for a high quality business park and leisure uses associated with the neighbouring nature reserve and golf club (a hotel). The site is located in a highly sustainable location on the edge of the city, adjacent to the Babraham Road Park and Ride Facility, employment uses to the south west, and leisure uses to the east and south. It is bound by roads to the north and west and is a logical location for new development. The proposed development would include open space and landscaping, which would link with, improve access to, and enhance the neighbouring Beechwoods nature reserve and Gog Magog golf club. This would also provide ecological benefits and contribute towards the Council’s aspirations regarding biodiversity net gain.

The site could accommodate 380 dwellings, which is based on a density of 30 dwellings/hectare and reflects the edge of settlement location and character of the city and surrounding area.

It is proposed that the site will accommodate residential development (Circa 400 units), including market and affordable dwellings with other appropriate ancillary uses.

Market and affordable housing, Older persons housing

Public open space

The proposed development will provide: Market and affordable housing to meet the demand of the local area; Public open space; Green infrastructure; Financial contributions to infrastructure, where necessary and viable.

It is anticipated that the proposed development will accommodate approximately 400 dwellings. This is based on: a developable area of circa. 19 hectares; an approximate density of between 25-30 dph; and the provision of an appropriate landscaped buffer along the site’s southern boundary. However, this will be refined as the proposals for the scheme become informed by a robust evidence base.

Details to follow.

Yes (Please give details)

Access achievable onto Cambridge Road to the northwest. Precise details of access arrangements to be informed by further surveys.

No

The site benefits from relatively flat relief.

No

The site is not constrained by flood risk, drainage, contamination, biodiversity or heritage. It is noted that RSPB Fowlmere is located to the south east of the site, and it is considered that any perceived impact can be mitigated by the provision of a landscaped buffer within the southern part of the site. This has been factored into the site’s overall capacity to accommodate 400 units. The site lies entirely within Flood Zone 1, a future scheme is likely to include Sustainable Drainage Systems.

Details to follow.

Yes (Please give details)

Any future application will be supplemented by a utilities report, demonstrating that the proposed development will have access to key utilities. Whilst there are existing electrical lines across the site, these do not represent a constraint to development, and will be considered as part of a future scheme.

Wates Developments are in advanced discussions with the landowner.

Enquiries received

The site offers an opportunity to accommodate comprehensive development to meet the affordable and market housing demand within Melbourn. The site is in a sustainable location, which benefits from pedestrian linkages to facilities and services within Melbourn. In addition, the site lies in proximity to Meldreth train station, which provides connectivity to Cambridge City to the north.

The site is located within Flood Zone 1 which means it has a low probability of flood risk. The proposed development would include an appropriate drainage strategy to manage surface water drainage. The site contains a number of trees and shrubs, most of which are located along the site boundaries. A tree survey and arboricultural impact assessment of the site will need to be undertaken. The proposed development will seek to retain as many of the trees as possible. The proposed development would provide additional landscape planting in order to create an attractive landscape setting for the proposed dwellings. An ecological assessment of the site will need to be undertaken, but it is unlikely that there will be any constraints to development. The proposed development will seek to retain any ecological features on site and include ecological enhancement measures within the landscape strategy. An assessment of the contribution that the site makes to the Green Belt purposes and to the wider landscape will need to be undertaken. It is noted that the site contains buildings and structures and part of it would be defined as previously developed land. The site is also adjacent to existing built development. It is considered that development would be unlikely to have any adverse impact on the compactness or setting of Cambridge and it would not lead to the merging of villages, and as such, the site makes a limited contribution to the purposes for including land within the Green Belt. An archaeological assessment of the site will need to be undertaken. The site is not affected by any other heritage assets.
