Respondent: Ben Cofield

Representation Summary:

I think there should be as many entrances as possible, including 2 new ones to the Business Park, a pedestrianised boulevard on the existing Cowley Road and links to a whole new area south of the railway line. See attached diagram. Fen Road should have improved access too, ideally as part of Fen Meadows, not a Traveller compound.

Representation Summary:

This is especially important with regards to transport links. The surrounding areas should not be negatively effected by an increase in vehicular traffic. The linking between the new and existing infrastructure must be well thought out, with a particular focus on encouraging people to access the new site by sustainable modes of transport (by bike, bus or on foot) that are/ should be already in place by the time work begins on the new site.

Says it all
it should not be designed in isolation of the surrounding area and communities. For example, there is a need to balance the desire to integrate the new development with the wider city with the need to minimise any negative impacts on existing residents or occupiers.

Respondent: Brookgate

Representation Summary:

Brookgate fully supports the proposed approach. The site has the potential to become a distinct quarter in its own right but the physical linkages and thresholds need careful integration with the existing urban fabric. Benefits which can be delivered through the development of this site such as access to public transport, new amenity space, retail and local services and facilities should be available for the wider community.

The surrounding community, which this iteration of the AAP has labelled as some of the most disadvantaged in the City, would be best integrated with the site by an increase in lower skilled employment and apprenticeship opportunities.

Representation Summary:

One of the key objectives of the proposals should be to break down the bounded nature of the site. It would have been useful to illustrate in more detail, and give more importance to, any options that have been explored for the following - in terms of vehicular, pedestrian and cycle routes;
- improvements to the section of Milton Road adjacent to the area
- improvements to, or new, connections into Milton from the site
- connections over the railway
- connections over the river
- connections over the guided busway extension and cycle path to the South
If these have been explored and dismissed, then we should know why.

The site is bounded by infrastructure and one of the key objectives- given the proposals to introduce a new railway station, new housing, new offices and industry, whilst relating closely to neighbouring residential and commercial properties - should be to break down the bounded nature of the site. Showing the wider context and potential improvements to nearby connections would assist with this objective. In addition to this it would have been useful to illustrate in more detail, and give more importance to, any options that have been explored for the following - in terms of vehicular, pedestrian and cycle routes;
- improvements to the section of Milton Road adjacent to the area
- improvements to, or new, connections into Milton from the site
- potential connections over the railway
- potential connections over the river
- potential connections over the guided busway extension and cycle path to the South
If including these have been explored and dismissed, then knowing the reasons for this would be useful.

BALANCED AND INTEGRATED COMMUNITIES- EFFECTIVE INTEGRATION WITH THE WIDER AREA: PROPOSED APPROACH:

The CNFE development should be comprehensive in its own right, but to be truly successful measures should be taken to ensure it is also effectively integrated with the wider communities.

This should include measures to achieve:
* Integration with the wider area;
* Welcoming entrances to the area;
* Convenient access to new facilities in the development;
* Improved signage;
* Accessible local services and facilities, through new facilities or improvements to nearby
* facilities;
* Access to appropriate support to ensure the development of cohesive community
* Informal and formal social spaces that support the needs of workers and residents.

The proposals on integration with the wider community are supported in order to build a successful, healthy and vibrant community.

Representation Summary:

The proposed approach to integration with surrounding communities is supported but could be improved. It is fundamental to achieving a comprehensive scheme that the site is considered with regards to the wider context and the opportunities for enhancing the wider area, for example through sustainable connections between homes and jobs. This should be extended to include reference to connecting CNFE to planned new communities, most significantly given its scale and proximity to CNFE, Waterbeach New Town.

Representation Summary:

Yes, in principle, the approach is supported but it should be made clear that the "wider communities" are not limited simply to those which adjoin the CNFE area, or even be limited to North Cambridge or Cambridge alone. Rather it should be an objective to make this unique site accessible to people who might arrive by road or rail or by public transport and who might come from some distance.

Representation Summary:

The Campaign supports the proposed approach and measures to integrate the area with the surrounding communities. For the Campaign, transport connections into the wider area are especially important. Active and public travel must be the focus in new developments to avoid increasing private motor traffic on the nearby road network. Walking and cycling connections into the wider area must be of the highest quality. The Campaign will not support shared-use facilities as these fail all people. Protected, direct and efficient crossings for bike and foot must be provided at all the off-site junctions.

Integration with the surrounding area is important to delivering a successful new quarter for Cambridge. However, as set out above, this is subject to an acknowledgement that a number of sites within the AAP area contain commercial premises which cannot be accessible to the general public.

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.
