Greater Cambridge Local Plan Issues and Options – Upcoming Consultation in January 2020

Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council have work underway on a new joint Local Plan that will affect the future of Greater Cambridge over the next 20 years. The Councils are preparing to carry out a public consultation called: Greater Cambridge Local Plan – The First Conversation.  The consultation will start the conversation about the kind of place we want Greater Cambridge to be in the future.

It will explore the ‘big themes’ –climate change, biodiversity, social inclusion and great places – that will influence how homes, jobs and infrastructure are planned, and where growth might go.

During the consultation they will be taking a pop-up ‘roadshow’ to places around the area including shopping centres, schools, community centres and other places where they can reach out to as many people as possible, making it easy for you to spend a few minutes finding out more and sharing your views.

This is the current list of events: you’ll be able to find out more when the dedicated Local Plan website is launched in the New Year.
