Grafton Area of Major Change SPD 2017

4.4.9

Representation ID: 32139

Received: 06/11/2017

Respondent: Defence Infrastructure Organisation

Representation:

The areas of Fitzroy Street, Burleigh Street and Grafton Area fall within the statutory 15.2m height and technical safeguarding consultation zones surrounding Cambridge Airport and also fall within the statutory birdstrike safeguarding consultation zones.
This office would need to be consulted on any development at this location exceeding the 15.2m height criterion and for any SUDs schemes or development including the creation of balancing ponds / green roofs as these types of development may have the potential to attract flocking bird species hazardous to air traffic safety.

I can confirm the MOD has no objection to proposals for future development within the Grafton Area, but would wish to be consulted upon any relevant planning applications in accordance with the procedures set out under Town and Country Planning (Safeguarding Aerodromes, Technical Sites and Military Explosive Storage Sites) Direction 2002.
Please note the above comments are purely related to the DIO Statutory Safeguarding interests.

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has not been consulted on the above consultation. This office received notification through the tool Devplan.
The MODs principle concern relates to ensuring that tall structures especially tall buildings do not cause an obstruction to air traffic movements at MOD aerodromes or compromise the operation of air navigational transmitter/receiver facilities located in the area.
As you will be aware air traffic approaches and technical installations at MOD aerodromes are protected with statutory safeguarding zones which identify height consultation zones in the area surrounding MOD aerodromes relative to topography and distance from the site (s).
The aerodromes are also protected with statutory birdstrike safeguarding consultation zones. Therefore, DIO Safeguarding is concerned with the development of open water bodies, the creation of wetland habitat, refuse and landfill sites. These types of development have the potential to attract large flocking bird species hazardous to aviation safety.
On reviewing the Masterplan and Guidance SPD, I wish to register the following comments:
