News and Updates
Even as South Cambridgeshire District Council's Local Plan (which includes proposals for 5,000 new homes in Cambourne and Bourn Airfield) is being scrutinised by the ongoing Examination in Public, developer McA Developments has announced new plans to build 2,350 new homes, two new primary schools and a secondary school in Cambourne. The proposed site would extend from the west of Lower Cambourne to to the A1198 and north to south from the A428 to the Caxton bypass.
South Cambs District Council's Cllr Robert Turner has said "Our job is to now assess these on their merits and look at the case the developers have put forward. Please make sure you take this opportunity to see what has been put forward and have your say.”
The Council has launched a six-week consultation period and are holding the following sessions inviting people to express their views:
Thursday 29 January: Caxton Village Hall, 5pm – 8pm
Friday 30 January: The Hub, High Street, Cambourne, 5pm – 8pm
Saturday 31 January: The Hub, High Street, Cambourne, 10am – 1pm.
We understand that the Council will also be writing to residents in Cambourne and Caxton but not to other local people who will be affected by the additional load on local services such as transport.
You can also express your views on this new proposal by clicking on www.scambs.gov.uk/content/cambourne or by viewing plans in the Council’s offices in Cambourne.
The consultation period closes on Friday 20th February.
