The Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service is developing a joint Local Plan for the first time, covering the City of Cambridge South Cambridgeshire. The plan will affect how we work, live, and play in Greater Cambridge over the next two decades and beyond, ensuring a consistent approach to planning and building across both areas up to 2041.
The new aims to decrease climate impacts and increase the quality of everyday life for communities. New development will target minimising carbon emissions and reliance on the private car; create thriving neighbourhoods with the variety of jobs and homes we need; increase nature, wildlife and green spaces; and safeguard our unique heritage and landscapes.
But what does this mean?
Following consultation last year on the First Proposals, the CFCI is delighted to welcome Stephen Kelly, Joint Director of Planning and Economic Development, who will provide a summary of the story so far and an overview of next steps in the process of developing the new Local Plan.
