FeCRA’s presentation to Local Plan Big Debate 18.2.20

Dear all,

Update 3rd February, 2020

FeCRA‘s presentation to Local Plan Big Debate 18.2.20 – Your contribution is needed

As you know, Greater Cambridge Planning are holding a Big Debate on the next Local Plan on Tuesday 18th February 2020 (see our latest Newsletter at http://fecra.org.uk/update-27th-jan-2020/) and FeCRA has been fortunate to secure one of the 8 presentation slots, so we need your feedback as soon as possible on what you think is important that we should cover. The committee will then try and select items to incorporate residents’ concerns from all areas of the City. For example, we are hearing concerns from residents all over the city about the impact that unlimited growth is having. People say the agenda for fast growth without any limits is leading to increased inequality and unsustainability, it is not addressing the climate or biodiversity emergency and it is causing adverse outcomes on the character of the city.

Let us know what is your main concern and if possible a picture, photo, diagram or slide that illustrates it, by Friday 7th February, as we have to submit our presentation well in advance.


This is the brief:

The evening will include a series of 8 quick fire presentations from a range of local groups – each group will show 20 slides with 20 seconds to speak to each slide (a format known as  pecha kucha– think a mini TED talk but even shorter!) There will be a Q&A/debate session after each group of 4 presentations. It will be open to the public to attend, and hosted in an informal, lively cabaret style format.


We would like groups that present to make their slideshows as visual as possible – no bullet points, please! Think photos, drawings, maps, infographics – you can be provocative, poetic or anything in between.


The event will start at 6.30 and run till around 8.30-9pm, with time for drinks/mingling before and after – we hope that a lot of great conversations will be sparked.


Please send any contributions to me by this Friday 7th February.

Many thanks,


Wendy Blythe

Chair, FeCRA
