Policy COH/7-1: Village Employment

While this approach is supported, we would question whether such an approach is achievable given the shortage of suitable land for providing additional car parking. Is it feasible to require sites in such a tight knit village core to provide on‐site parking?

Policy COH/7-2: Rural employment

a) As currently worded, the policy allows any proposals that increase rural employment and there is no indication of the scale of development or whether the proposal is on a brownfield site. It is not clear whether this policy applies to any site outside the Development Framework? If it does, then the sustainability of such a policy is questioned as it may not conform to the NPPF

b) The employment policies in the Local Plan could cover the aspirations of this policy.

Policy COH/7-3:new Durman Stearn site (X11 in Figure 14)

a) The site is located in the Green Belt and the proposal is potentially contrary to Green Belt policies. The Local Plan does not allow for amendments to be made to the Green Belt in Cottenham. There would have to be very special circumstances to include a policy in the Plan within the Green Belt

b) There is a current planning application for this site - Ref S/4747/18/OL
