As regular readers will know, the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan was submitted for examination in March 2014. The plan sets out how the development needs in the area will be met to the year 2031. The examination process is being carried out by independent planning inspectors to determine whether the Local Plan is sound and has complied with the necessary legal requirements.
The plan has now reached the next key stage in the process. Overturning an earlier decision that the 'Main Modifications' did not need addressing, the Inspectors have now asked that consultation be carried out on the Main Modifications which may be necessary in order for the Local Plan to be judged sound.
Two of the most significant modifications regarding the proposed development at Bourn Airfield concern the extension of the building boundary nearer to Highfields Caldecote and allowing northbound-only access onto the Broadway in Bourn.
It is important that the Inspectors are made aware of local opinion on these modifications.
StopBAD is keen to instigate a further Hearing on these modifications in order that they can be explored appropriately. To achieve this it is important that the Inspectors are clearly aware of the strength of the objections among local people. To make your opinion known, please go to the website -https://www.scambs.gov.uk/mainmods and have your say.
This consultation period is running from Friday 5th January to Friday 16th February.
