Update 26th Feb 2019

Dear All,

Update February 26 2019

Greater Cambridge Assembly meeting – 2pm Guildhall

For those who may not be able to attend tomorrow, Wednesday’s assembly – the Agenda includes:

  • The BioMedical Campus Travel Needs Review
  • Milton Road: Bus, Cycling and Walking Improvements – Final Design


Note all the background documents on line.

A bit of a convoluted route to the full papers. Click greatercambridge.org.uk/news/gcp-proje… scroll to end, click, and scroll down to P2, hyperlinks on item 9.

The scale of growth anticipated at the BioMedical Campus and Addenbrookes site is phenomenal. We are hearing lots of concerns about the impact of this especially as it appears even more growth is anticipated. The report states ‘”additional employment growth may take place if use of the site intensifies, especially if new transport links trigger additional development on the CBC site.”

We are hearing concerns about the loads being imposed on a transport network already at capacity. Air quality in parts of the city has been recorded as being unsafe.

The development planned for the Northern Fringe is similarly likely to have a big impact on North Cambridge residents and in the villages.

Tomorrow’s Conservation Event – Celebrate City Centre Heritage, 27 Feb,  The Guildhall 1-5pm

A reminder of this event also tomorrow which looks at Cambridge City Centre as a conservation area 50 years after its designation in 1969. Hear about recent archaeological work in Cambridge from the County Archaeologist. Get Historic England’s perspective from the outgoing Regional Director and from Duncan Wilson, the Chief Executive. Take the opportunity to hear from Civic Voice, Executive Director – Ian Harvey and the Historic Towns & Villages Forum’s Chair –  Steven Bee about the continuing importance of conservation areas.

1-5pm open to all – stalls/displays/talks.

There will be the opportunity to vote for a favourite building (from among the nominations).

Best wishes,


Wendy Blythe

Chair, FeCRA
