Erection of 36 affordable dwellings
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.

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.

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

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.

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but couldn't find anything sensible to tack it onto. I got a press release via the City Council email alerts, and, since we look at and comment upon planning applications, it is relevant to us. Not sure if it will make things better or worse. It may be helpful to have unified cycle parking standards for both South Cambs and the City for example, if that is the way things are going. Anyway, link and copied and pasted press release below. But could it make things less accountable? My impression is that we tend to get listened-to more by the City than by South Cambs, but that's only an impression. I guess it depends on what officers are appointed to the joint service, where it is based, etc etc.
New 'Greater Cambridge Planning Service' being set up
News release from 21 June 2017, 3:26pm
A NEW integrated planning service for the Greater Cambridge area, transformed to provide an improved service for customers along with greater capacity and resilience, is set to move a step closer.
A business case for the new service, to be considered by councillors of both councils involved – Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council – early next month, sets out how the transition to a service covering the two council areas would be introduced over the next two years.
As set out in the business case, the proposed new Greater Cambridge planning service would offer clear benefits, including:
Capacity to meet the growing need for strategic planning and development across the area at a time of rapid growth here; with work on a single joint future plan for the two councils due to pick up pace when work on the current two joined-up Local Plans is close to a conclusion;
Providing a service of regional or national significance which would be more capable of attracting, developing and retaining a larger team of talented staff;
Offering an increased capacity and a more flexible approach to deliver a quality services for local residents and businesses and respond rapidly to the frequent changes to national planning policy.
The shared service will also be looking to update computer systems to help local people have their say on applications and support council officers and councillors with good access to planning proposals by making use of new technology.
Work towards creating a new ‘Greater Cambridge Planning Service’ started in 2015. The two councils agreed then to work towards a new shared planning service that would deliver more capacity, support high quality development and provide better customer service at a time of increased development activity in the region.
Developments have included the appointment of Stephen Kelly as Joint Director of Planning and Economic Development and a project board to develop these proposals and wider joint initiatives by the two councils on planning and transport, working closely with the City Deal and in the future with the new countywide Combined Authority.
The plans councillors will now debate have been developed alongside managers in the planning teams to make sure they take on board the views of the people doing the job.
The first full phase of the transition to the new service would see a new senior management team appointed and staff transferred from Cambridge City Council to South Cambridgeshire District Council, who would be the employer authority. In total the two councils currently employ just over 150 planners, making it one of the bigger non-urban planning teams in the UK. The procurement of a new common ICT system would also start to be investigated
The second phase will consist of detailed work to design and implement the wider staff structure and assess the impact on other council services.
The new Greater Cambridge Planning Service is expected to be fully operational by early 2019. It would continue to have offices in Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire to provide a planning service to both areas.
Cllr Peter Topping, Leader of South Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “This new planning service is more than just a merger of the two existing teams. Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire are experiencing growth on an unprecedented scale outside of London. We owe it to our residents, as well as the businesses who want to create jobs here, and to the house builders - of all sizes - that we create a planning service that is resilient, protects what we value about our heritage and our environment, demands excellence in design, and keeps pace with the ambition for prosperity in this part of the country.
“Without this capability, we cannot expect developers or government to listen to us, and we are determined that we will be listened to, on planning matters, on behalf of our communities."
Cllr Lewis Herbert, Leader of Cambridge City Council, said: “We are determined that the proposed Greater Cambridge Planning Service will be one of the most effective planning teams in the country, providing a reliable, more straightforward service for customers and the wider community at a time of major growth in the area that is no respecter of council boundaries.
“The business case sets out how clear is the joint commitment and depth of agreement on key issues between the two councils and the route to reach our goal of a transformed planning service for the whole area, which builds on the great work the two councils have been doing together in recent years such as on our Local Plans and future planning strategy.”
The business case for the Greater Cambridge Planning Service is being discussed at Cambridge City Council’s Strategy and Resources Scrutiny Committee on 3 July and at South Cambridgeshire District Council’s Scrutiny and Overview Committee on 6 July and Cabinet on 13 July.
