Cambridge Northern Fringe East AAP - Issues and Options

Question 18a

Representation ID: 29625

Received: 27/01/2015

Respondent: Marshall Group of Companies

Representation Summary:

Building heights in Option A (heights up to 16m) may be acceptable, but Options B (heights up to 24m) and C (including "significantly taller forms of development") in particular have potential to cause conflicts with safe airport and aircraft operations. In order to ensure that any development principles established through the AAP are deliverable and compatible with the safe operation of the airport, Marshall Group requests that the joint Councils (or any prospective developer) engages early with the Airport to ensure any building heights proposed are compatible with airport operations, including the operation of cranes throughout the development.

These comments are provided on behalf of Marshall Group, which includes Cambridge International Airport. We understand that the area defined as Cambridge Northern Fringe East (CNFE) is located between the A14 to the North, the A10 Milton Road to the West, the Cambridge to Kings Lynn railway line to the east, and residential areas of Chesterton to the south. We also note that the consultation document seeks views on the potential to extend the boundary to include the Cambridge Science Park.

As an operational airport, Cambridge International Airport is under a statutory duty to ensure the safe operation of the airport in accordance with guidance from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) as set out in:
CAP 168 (Licensing of Aerodromes);
CAP 738 (Safeguarding of Aerodromes); CAP 1096 (Crane Guidance);
Ministry of Defence (Cambridge Airport) Technical Site Safeguarding signed and dated 23 July 2003.

As part of this process, Cambridge International Airport has lodged formal safeguarding maps with Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council. The safeguarding map shows that the area to be covered by the CNFE Area Action Plan falls within the area hatched green on the safeguarding map. Any development proposed with a maximum height in excess of 15 metres above ground level (AGL) requires consultation with the Airport. The site is also within 2.5 nautical miles of the airport and as such falls within the Air Traffic Zone (ATZ) which is controlled by the Air Traffic Controllers at Cambridge International Airport.

Our expectation is that building heights in Option A (heights up to 16m) may be acceptable, but Options B (heights up to 24m) and C (including "significantly taller forms of development") in particular have potential to cause conflicts with safe airport and aircraft operations. In order to ensure that any development principles established through the AAP are deliverable and compatible with the safe operation of the airport, Marshall Group requests that the joint Councils (or any prospective developer) engages early with the Airport to ensure any building
heights proposed are compatible with airport operations, including the operation of cranes throughout the development.

Question 13

Representation ID: 29629

Received: 27/01/2015

Respondent: Marshall Group of Companies

Representation Summary:

Marshall Group Properties Ltd objects to Redevelopment Option 4 on the basis it assumes relocation of the sewage treatment works.

At the present time is that this is unproven, and until such time as a feasible site has been identified and has a real prospect of delivery, the AAP should not assume further land can be made available for development.

Marshall Group Properties Ltd objects to Redevelopment Option 4 on the basis it assumes relocation of the sewage treatment works.

Our view at the present time is that this is unproven, and until such time as a feasible site has been identified and has a real prospect of delivery, the AAP should not assume further land can be made available for development.

This is supported by text include in the submission Local Plans for both Cambridge City (Policy
14) and South Cambridgeshire (Policy SS/4). This states:
"Exploration of the viability and feasibility of development of the Waste Water Treatment Works within Cambridge City to provide a new treatment works facility at a smaller scale on the current site will be undertaken as part of the feasibility investigations in drawing up the AAP."

The implication here is that when defining any policy in the AAP it will be necessary to fully understand the implications.

Equally, under the requirements of Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Directive, the full policy implications of any decision to rationalise or relocate the sewage works would need to be taken into account including, for example, impacts arising at any alternative locations proposed.
