Representation ID: 29250

Respondent: Ben Cofield

Representation Summary:

I broadly agree. In the area I have highlighted, which does not belong to Brookgate, the chief recreation area is the square bounded by the hotel, apartments and office. Let's call it Novi Square for now. This, together with the playing fields for the school, would provide sufficient space for Cambridge North. Fen Meadows would have its own provision. I would also recommend a park area near the station. If full redevlopment goes ahead, more parkland will be available, as per my other diagram.

Let's not have a concrete jungle. Open spaces will make the area more pleasant to work and live in. Encouragement of wildlife should be a default requirement, with a particular focus on providing habitat for birds, hedgehogs and bees.

Respondent: Brookgate

Representation Summary:

Brookgate agree that the re-development of the CNFE area presents a range of opportunities to enhance the existing green infrastructure. There should however remain flexibility to allow the off site provision of certain open space typologies such as playing fields.

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:

The approach to the provision of open space is supported in principle. Regard needs to be paid to amenity issues which may arise from other uses in the CNFE area, such as the Water Recycling Centre, waste management uses and railheads which could give rise to dust, noise and odour. Open space needs to be located in a position where such matters will not arise and / or can be satisfactorily mitigated

The policy to require open space is supported

Access to open space is a key wider determinant of health.

The approach to the provision of open space is supported in principle. However, regard needs to be paid to amenity issues which may arise from other uses in the CNFE area, such as the Water Recycling Centre, waste management uses and railheads which could give rise to dust, noise and odour. Open space needs to be located in a position where such matters will not arise and / or can be satisfactorily mitigated; otherwise the areas will not be capable of being used and enjoyed for the purpose designed.

The policy to require open space is supported, as the action plan area is located in both Cambridge City and South Cambridgeshire the local plan with the greater requirement for open space should be followed to ensure enough provision is made.

Access to open space is a key wider determinant of health.

The standards need to be defined in the context of the proposals and the wider context beyond the AAP area as promoted through enhanced connections to a variety of amenity spaces in the wider area.

Respondent: Turnstone Estates Limited

Representation Summary:

On the proviso that the emerging Open Space Standards, as set out in Policy 68 and Appendix I of the Cambridge Local Plan 2014 (proposed submission) only apply to residential development, Turnstone does not object to the approach that has been suggested. It must be clear, however, that the Open Space Standards should only apply to residential developments, and that questions of the appropriate quantum of open space related to commercial developments should be negotiated on a case by case basis.

Respondent: Cambridge Past, Present and Future

Representation Summary:

We support the application of the relevant open space standards, but wish also to emphasise that the development must be integrated into the wider landscape through the improvement and development of green infrastructure beyond the currently identified site boundary. This should include the creation of a strategic accessible landscape/green space area along the River Cam Corridor and linking Milton Country Park (akin to developments to the south and west of Cambridge).

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.

Respondent: Dominic Reber

Representation Summary:

Like the idea of including "open space" / green areas. The heavy use / popularity of Milton Country Park shows that these spaces are highley valued. Note: The Science Park has lost a lot of its green space over the years. Slightly concerned about "intensive" use of land (option 3 & 4).

Respondent: Mr Gustavo Milstein

Representation Summary:

None of the current proposals add any significant green open spaces. The only green areas shown are no more than token buffer spaces.

This is a great opportunity for providing the City or Cambridge with a new green lung, which could include appropriate leisure opportunites and help re-balance the current trend to over-development.

Respondent: Sport England

Representation Summary:

It is not considered the document adequately addresses the issues of formal open space provision for sport. It is considered that, depending on the number of residential units proposed, there will be a policy requirement to provide formal recreation space for outdoor sport to local policy standards. It is accepted that on a tight urban site such as this it may not be appropriate to provide such facilities on site, but provision should be made for suitable off-site provision to meet the need generated by the new residents of this area.

Representation Summary:

Support provision of open space in particular, which is not addressed in Option 1.
Support a higher level than shown in any of the Options, given the huge benefits that open space provides to well-being and how crowded Cambridge is.
