    Before the pandemic you could turn right here, now, any cyclist ends up on car-repelling paint with nowhere obvious to go.

  • Core Site - North East Cambridge

    Created by Roxanne (Cycling Campaign Officer) // 1 thread

    Anglian Water and Cambridge City Council, working with U+I and TOWN, are exploring the vision for a new sustainable urban quarter at the heart of the proposed new district of North East Cambridge.

    The project is currently called the Core Site, North East Cambridge (shown on the attached map). The aim is to deliver over 5,000 new homes on the Core Site over the next 20 years, along with shops, workplaces, education, community and leisure facilities, and open spaces. This opportunity is enabled by the proposed relocation of Anglian Water’s Cambridge Waste Water Treatment Plant, with the support of Homes England, and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority.

    Cambridge City Council is currently bringing forward an Area Action Plan (AAP) for the wider district, within which the Core Site is located, which could deliver a total of 8,000 new homes in ‘an inclusive, walkable, low-carbon new city district with a lively mix of homes, workplaces, services and social spaces, fully integrated with surrounding neighbourhoods’. The Core Site has a key role to play in delivering this vision.

    The landowners of the Core Site - Anglian Water and Cambridge City Council - have selected U+I, in partnership with TOWN, as master developers for the site will be working to bring forward proposals for the site and, eventually, a planning application.

  • (A10 pedestrian and cycle route) of planning application S/0559/17/OL

    Created by Gabriel // 1 thread

    The plans for the improved shared pavement between Waterbeach and Milton have been added to the planning portal. Planning application:  S/0559/17/COND29

    Link: https://applications.greatercambridgeplanning.org/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=QTPO0ADXGAT00


    Also please note the A10 SLO for a reduction of the speed limit on these sections from 50mph to 40mph.

    From looking at the plans my main concerns

    Narrow sections - less than 3m wide, which is not LTN 1/20 compliant and very unambitious seeing as 11,000 homes are being built in Waterbeach.

    The separation from the carriageway is also very unambitious at 0,5m and not a properly segregated verge. 0,5m is the absolute minimum suggested in LTN 1/20. 1m is the minimum recommended.

  • Map of planned projects

    Created by wookey // 2 threads

    It's hard to know where (and when) all the future cycling-related developments are, so a map showing them could be very useful. This issue is to discuss this idea, if it is useful, or already exists somewhere, and how it might be done.

  • New Joint Development Control Committee

    sound+fury // 1 thread

    From the previous thread:

    Key information:

    The establishment of the new JDCC, composed of members from both South Cambridgeshire District Council and Cambridge City Council have now been completed and the previous JDCC has been dissolved...

    'In terms of the remit of the new Committee, some cross boundary sites have been included that were not within the remit of the previous Committee ... both Councils have adopted Local Plans which include specific policy designations – some of which overlap the Administrative boundary of the two Councils. Whilst both Councils have created a shared planning service, this does not change the statutory position of the two Councils as distinct “local Planning Authorities” ... The additional sites include the North East Cambridge Area Action Plan areas within both City and SCDC, Cambridge Biomedical Campus/Addenbrookes site and the extension of Peterhouse Science Park/ARM on Fulbourn Road.'

  • England's Economic Heartland

    http://www.englandseconomicheartland.com/

    "About us

    Stretching from Swindon to Cambridgeshire and from Northamptonshire to Hertfordshire, England’s Economic Heartland brings political and business leaders together in a strategic collaborative partnership with a shared commitment to realise the region's economic potential.

    We provide the region’s voice on strategic infrastructure and services. Our leadership is focused on addressing barriers to realising our potential.

    • We are the Sub-national Transport Body for the region. Our overarching Transport Strategy will be a 30 year strategic vision for our transport system that puts the needs of businesses and individuals at the forefront of investment decisions

    • Our work on wider strategic infrastructure is focused on making sure investment in transport, digital and utilities infrastructure is ‘joined up’

    • Our work with our delivery partners is focused on identifying investment priorities, getting the funding secured and then delivering improvements to budget and on-time.

    Working in collaboration with Government and partners across the Heartland, we are committed to creating places where people and business realise their potential, and are able to compete on the global stage for UK plc.

    Our 5.1m population and 280,000 business together generate around £155 billion GVA. We have a 21st century economy, particularly rich in high value engineering, science, technology and research. Most of our firms are small or medium sized enterprises with many based in rural or semi-rural areas.

    Overall, our economy is successful and we’re a net contributor to the exchequer. However, the National Infrastructure Commission believes our economy could double or even triple in size. But it also warns this opportunity cannot be taken for granted.

    Indeed, our success already comes at a price. Economic growth combined with underinvestment in infrastructure and services means that the pressure on our transport, digital and wider infrastructure networks has grown to the point where they operate close to capacity most of the time. The resilience of our networks has dropped, affecting business productivity and making travel for individuals increasingly challenging.

    Our transport system continues to be dominated by the legacy of investment that left us with a largely radial pattern of strategic networks centred on London. Travel across the Heartland – and in particular east-west – is hamstrung by poor connectivity and poor integration.

    Digital connectivity remains a challenge at a time when lifestyle and business changes mean our demands and expectations of digital infrastructure continue to increase. And economic success brings with it further pressure on wider strategic infrastructure, including power and water supplies.

    England’s Economic Heartland is the response of strategic political and business leaders to overcome these challenges, with investment in strategic infrastructure and services key to realising our potential."

  • Cycle racks in Waterbeach

    Created by Paul Bearpark // 1 thread

    Waterbeach Cycle Campaign has received a Zero Carbon Communities grant from SCDC for installation of some badly needed cycle racks in the village centre. We have consulted with villagers about their preferences for their location and the Parish Council has approved the installation in those locations.

    We need to arrange for the installation
