Plans open for consultation dated 12th May 2008 (deadline 26th May 2008)

We have put a copy of the plans on the official documents page for this development for ease of access. These are all public documents.

The application, with these plans, are open to consultation until 26th May 2008.

The address for objections/comments is Toby.Williams@cambridge.gov.uk

Key issues

Key problems to raise:

  • Babraham Road: 2m-wide shared use path
  • Babraham Road: buildouts like those on King’s Hedges Road – 3-3.5m
  • Babraham Road: Toucan crossing outside the development contains dog-leg arrangement and is multiple stage
  • Lack of clarity where cycle parking will go – surely not all in the area by the entrance to the site?
  • Main entrance into the development from Babraham Road has pavement on one site only
