Cambridge Northern Fringe East AAP - Issues and Options

Question 1

Representation ID: 29637

Received: 02/02/2015

Respondent: Brookgate

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Brookgate supports the proposed vision and agrees with the need for comprehensive planning. The new railway station will create a high quality transport gateway, acting as a catalyst for the regeneration of the wider area. The CB4 site presents a unique opportunity for integrated development to occur. The Chesterton Partnership has the ability to deliver a comprehensively planned re-development of the largest brownfield site in Cambridge, without the involvement of multiple land owning parties. The deliverability of the CB4 site is essential to ensure the regeneration of the CNFE will occur in tandem with the new rail station opening.

Question 2

Representation ID: 29638

Received: 02/02/2015

Respondent: Brookgate

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Brookgate support the proposed objectives, however they should be improved as follows. Objective 2 should include a specific reference to 'high' densities rather than just 'densities' given the highly sustainable nature of the CNFE location. Specific and explicit reference should be made to residential land uses both within Objective 2 and the wider development objectives. The objectives are currently too generic and must provide greater clarity, given that they will be central to the implementation of the AAP. Brookgate propose redevelopment Option 2a, appended to this submission. Reference to this redevelopment option should be made within the proposed development objectives.

Question 4

Representation ID: 29640

Received: 02/02/2015

Respondent: Brookgate

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The existing situation at Cambridge Science Park is markedly different to that at CNFE. Whilst it is important that the regeneration of the CNFE results in the area becoming a fully integrated and joined up part of Cambridge, the inclusion of the Science Park would require a dilution of the aims set out in the proposed AAP vision and objectives. The Science Park is more suited to coverage by the generic Local Plan, whilst the CNFE requires a specific and tailored set of aims and objectives to achieve its successful regeneration and redevelopment.

Question 5

Representation ID: 29641

Received: 02/02/2015

Respondent: Brookgate

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The proposed vision for CNFE is to embrace opportunities to create a well-connected and vibrant place. Proposed Objective 6 is to create an accessible, permeable and well-connected neighbourhood and Objective 8 to encourage a low carbon lifestyle. The inclusion of this triangular area of land will help to facilitate a pedestrian/cycle access for CNFE as part of the Chisholm Trail and this opportunity should be embraced.

Question 7a

Received: 02/02/2015

Respondent: Brookgate

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The CNFE area is not located in close proximity to the Science Park and naming the new station Cambridge Science Park Station would be misleading, resulting in poor legibility.

Question 7b

Representation ID: 29644

Received: 02/02/2015

Respondent: Brookgate

Representation Summary:

Question 7c

Received: 02/02/2015

Respondent: Brookgate

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Brookgate instead propose that the new station be named as Cambridge Park Station and the existing City station be named as Cambridge Station. This will ensure that the area is legible, particularly given the high volume of tourists who visit the area.

Representation ID: 29646

Received: 02/02/2015

Respondent: Brookgate

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The name is not representative of the station's location within the urban fabric of Cambridge and undermines the proposed Vision which states that CNFE will be 'wholly integrated into the fabric of Cambridge'.
