Cambridge Northern Fringe East AAP - Issues and Options

Representation ID: 29232

Received: 08/12/2014

Respondent: Ben Cofield

Representation Summary:

I agree that around major transport interchanges, density should be the highest. In my first diagram, heights are typically 8 to 12 storeys, with a couple of feature buildings, in the styles of another attachment. In the second, if full redevelopment goes ahead after relocation of the sewage works, we could go to 25+ storeys, if someone is prepared to build it.

Think of the project as a mini smart city with therefore a high occupancy density.

Respondent: Brookgate

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Brookgate strongly support the aspiration to create a place with real character and quality and support the principle of a basic urban design strategy which sets out key design parameters such as access, scale and distribution of uses. Brookgate are however concerned that developing and agreeing a detailed design strategy for all the CNFE sites with all stakeholders is not deliverable due to the diverse landholdings. Brookgate therefore suggest a design led approach which defines the detailed urban design parameters on the CB4 site which can then inform the future phases of the CNFE area

Representation Summary:

It is not appropriate to try and set design standards, including building heights and densities, before understanding the types of use and the quantum of each use that would be required to make the site deliverable/viable. It is accepted that the Draft Local Plan policies should form the baseline for the development of AAP specific policies.

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:

Consideration needs to be given to the type of use and the context of the site when setting out the requirements for place and building design, this will be particularly important for waste uses that could be adjacent to the A14 where existing screening and the surrounding uses should be taken into account.

A bespoke approach is required here to respond to the significance of the opportunity, the magnitude of investment and the particular constraints. This can be guided by the Cambridge Local Plan Proposed Submission.

Representation Summary:

Turnstone is content that the general approach, whereby what will in due course be adopted Local Plan design policies, will be used for the AAP area, is both sound and logical.

Too much unknown detail to comment at this stage but it should be high quality design with similar objectives to the University's North West Cambridge site.

Respondent: Cambridge City Council

Representation Summary:

High density development requires sufficient open space for people to be able to be able to relax, get outside and exercise as they do not necessarily have their own personal space to undertake such activity. Good quality design in this respect is very important to cater for a range of uses. Careful design to ensure that the tall buildings set close to the road do not create a corridor of brick and concrete without sufficient landscaping or open space to break this up.

Representation Summary:

No clear explanations, which means meaning will be defined later.

I find all proposed options to be too restricted with the use of space. A mix of residential use, offices and industry would be preferable to give it a more natural feel. For example, leave the Nuffield Road industrial area and more residential use development further north. Also consider a more modular approach that allows to develop toward a future goal, but doesn't depend on things (like moving the water recycling centre) from the get go.

*******************


9) Objective 3 shouldn't get highest priority.
14) 11-13 are too divided in to use of space, a more natural mix of residential, offices and industrial would be better. Also, re-use as much of what is already there as possible.
15, 16, 17) No clear explanations, which means meaning will be defined later.
18b) Would destroy the feeling of that part of the city.
23c) Science Park should be independent.
24d) This should only be considered if there are no other options. Moving the businesses will be expesive, so leave them there and build the residential area somewhere else.
30e) Student accomodation should be integrated so they won't all be in the same area.
36) Whatever makes best sense for transport at the current stage of the project.
