  • S/0296/19/DC Science Park - access from guided busway (eastern entrance)

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    While this is a discharge of condition 12 of a previous application this is quite a substantial project in its own right. It looks like a significant improvement, with a wide pathway for accessing the site, a bunch of fancy architecture (some sort of series of archways over the path), and even a parallel Zebra over one of the Science Park internal roadways.

    See part 6 of the D&A statement for several mentions of Camcycle input.

    While I am making this an issue I do not see any immediate reason to send in a response, but those involved with the pre-application talks may want to double-check, possibly even send a letter of support if happy.

    ...

  • Planning application responders

    Created by Matthew // 2 threads

    I'm thinking of convening a workshop or possibly simply an informal gathering (possibly at a pub or cafe) to discuss techniques and ideas for responding to planning applications. The timing is right, I think, with the approval of the new Local Plans for Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire.

    All are welcome, whether you already participate or are just interested in getting involved.

    I would like to gauge interest first and then we can pick a suitable time and place.

  • S/0791/18/FL Relocated Waterbeach railway station

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    Missed this one - sorry.

    Two accesses: new road with junction on Cody Road and improvement to Bannold Drove to form primary NMU access. New road from Cody Road will have 3m verge-protected shared-use pathway on north side. Bannold Drove ('varies - nominal 4m width') will be surfaced, traffic-calmed and gated to prevent motor vehicle access to the station. Where Bannold Drove meets the new access road there will be a crossing with walking and cycling priority to reach the shared-use pathway on the north side. The pathway will end at the cycle parking area, currently proposed to be 100 spaces provided in covered double-stackers plus 6 Sheffield stands for 'larger cycles'. Passive provision is made for a mirroring set of double stacker stands.

    I think the main qualm is with the cycle parking. Unsure how much there should be, but with all this space there ought to be more Sheffield stands I think. Also unclear how much security there will be, if any. CCTV at a minimum like Cambridge North, I imagine, is what's achievable. I've been told that the current Waterbeach station suffers from bike theft quite a lot, so this is important.

    Ideally we would want segregated walking/cycling routes but I'm unsure this is worth pushing hard on since Bannold Drove will be relatively wide & used for emergency access possibly & this is not that urban a location (though maybe someday it will be?).

    Slightly outside our usual remit but we may want to join with some other commenters to note that it is horribly cruel to put the lifts at the far, far end of the platform away from the station entrance, meaning that anyone in a wheelchair has traverse the entire northbound platform to reach the southbound platform (and then move up to wherever the train stops). Knowing how often lifts fail, we should press for lifts to be included in both station bridges (there are two proposed, one at each end, but only the far one has lifts proposed now).

    ...

    Relocated railway station comprising platforms, pedestrian bridges, access road, pedestrian and cycle routes, car and cycle parking, with other associated facilities and infrastructure.

  • S/0795/18/RM Cambridge Sport Lakes between Milton and Waterbeach

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    Massive new site connecting Waterbeach and Milton along the west side of the railway. Includes a navigable tunnel under the railway connecting to the River Cam with a new bridge to maintain the existing towpath. Seems to have big implications for the Waterbeach Greenway option along the west side of the railway in addition to everything else.

    1.1.1 Cambridge Sport Lakes Trust (a registered charity) has been established to construct, maintain and operate a 95.1 ha 220-acre lake, country park, and Sports Centre close to the centre of Cambridge. The sports centre created from this vision, Cambridge Sport Lakes is intended to be one of the country's largest purpose-built sports facilities and competition venues for rowing, triathlon and cycling.
    1.1.2 The aim is to create a multi-sport facility designed for the teaching and practice of rowing,
    canoeing, triathlon, cycling and other sports from Community/Club level up to Olympic level. The Lakes will offer 100 acres of wooded parkland and 10 miles of bank habitat for the public to enjoy. It will be a place where hundreds can experience a sense of physical wellbeing on a daily basis through the pursuit of outdoor recreations.
    9.2.1 Fen Road at Milton is the only public highway that crosses the proposed site. This road runs east from the village centre of Milton and terminates at the towing path on the River Cam.
    9.4.1 Fen Road will cross the Training Lake on a new bridge with pedestrian and cycle access routes formed to connect Fen Road to the new towpaths on each side of the Lake. It will connect Milton village with the site.
    9.4.2 Fen Rivers Way (the towpath) will cross The Cut on a new bridge, the impact of which will be the requirement for gentle approach ramps on each side. It will connect to the new towpaths on each side of The Cut and provide public access into the site from the south.
    9.7.1 There will be considerable increases in public access for foot and bicycle traffic in the south, via new footways that will connect to the Fen Rivers Way (River Cam towing path), Milton Country Park and with Fen Road at Milton. At the north, they will connect into the village of Waterbeach at Cardyke Road, thus providing a north-south linkage with Milton. A designated cycleway will similarly link the park south to the Fen Rivers Way and has the potential to connect to the new Jane Coston Cycle Bridge over the A14 via Fen Road or Milton Country Park. At the north, the cycleway can connect into Cardyke Road at Waterbeach. This will add an important link in the Cambridge to Ely cycleway which is being developed by Sustrans.

    There is also on-site cycle parking in a covered shelter to be examined.

  • S/3372/17/CW Incinerator at Waterbeach on A10 opp. Denny Abbey

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    Obviously a big deal for Waterbeach and surroundings. I'll restrict myself to cycling-related notes:

    Transport Assessment:

    3.1.6 [Over 600 HGV movements per day, albeit many seem to be already occurring on-site.]

    3.3.4 ... Whilst this is not considered to be a
    significant issue for experienced cycle users, it must be recognised that the
    A10 corridor does operate under 60mph national speed limit controls and is
    used for regular large HGV journeys. Such busy high speed routes typically
    do not represent an attractive cycle option for many potential cycle users

    3.3.5 It is understood that longer term CCC aspirations include the delivery of a
    dedicated cycle greenway route to Waterbeach village & the proposed
    Waterbeach Barracks / Airfield re-development, which could include for
    extensions towards the Waterbeach WMP site. Such proposals are believed
    to still be at a relatively early stage.

    (Site is very close to the Cambridge Research Park, which will have a cycle link built to the new Waterbeach development)

    Cycle Shelter:

    For employees and visitors they are using the same off-the-shelf Broxap cycle shelter with substandard 800mm spacing that we objected to at the Science Park.

    ...

    I think that our interest would be in ensuring that they properly integrate into any surrounding cycle network that is created by the Waterbeach development and that people cycling and walking are protected from the HGVs by having separated infrastructure and not sharing space (e.g. the entrance to the site for people cycling should be separate from the entrance for HGVs).

    Application for full planning permission for the construction and development of a Waste Recovery Facility (Waterbeach Waste Recovery Facility – WWRF) at Levitt’s Field, Waterbeach Waste Management Park (WWMP), Ely Road, Cambridge comprising the erection and operation of an Energy from Waste Facility to treat up to 250,000 tonnes of residual waste per annum, Air Cooled Condensers and associated infrastructure: including the development of an internal access road; office/welfare accommodation; workshop; car, cycle and coach parking; perimeter fencing; electricity sub-stations; weighbridges; weighbridge office; water tank; silos; lighting; heat off-take pipe; surface water management system; hardstanding; earthworks; landscaping; and bridge crossings.

  • S/4537/17/FL Science Park Unit 306 - new cycle shelters

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    Proposal to demolish existing 24-space cycle parking (and a variety of other things) and renovate, including 3 new Broxap BXMW/CA/1 'Cambridge' Cycle Shelters with claimed 72 cycle parking spaces total. SCambs requirement seems to be 76 spaces, so slightly short.

    More alarmingly, it appears that the Broxamp 'Cambridge' Cycle Shelters are specified from the manufacturer to fit two rows of six Sheffield stands at 800mm centre-to-centre spacing, significantly below requirements!

    The applicants are simply installing what they believe are industry standard cycle shelters, but it seems that Broxap does not comply with typical cycle parking standards.

    Two storey entrance extension. External repairs to existing hard and soft landscaping. Erection of bin store and cycle shelter. Internal and external alterations.
