Below are South Cambridgeshire District Council proposals or reviews that are currently open for consultation or comment.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Local Transport Plan
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority is asking people to share their thoughts on the first Local Transport Plan for the Combined Authority area. The plan sets out a long term vision for how transport will be used to respond to current and future challenges and opportunities in the area.
The deadline to respond is Friday 27 September. See www.tinyurl.com/CPCALTP for further details.
Review of Polling Districts, Places and Stations
SCDC are running a consultation asking for views on the current arrangements for polling districts and polling places in South Cambridgeshire. We are particularly keen to hear of any accessibility issues with our stations, so that we might improve access for residents where possible.
You can find all the information and submit any comments on the website here: www.scambs.gov.uk/elections/polling-district-review. The consultation is open until mid-August.
Comment on Greater Cambridge’s aspirations for greener new developments
SCDC have published proposals to help make new housing developments as green as possible. The draft guide to sustainable design and construction will, when adopted, give house-builders a clear steer on what is expected of them to reduce the environmental impact of developments. This includes setting out the need to minimise carbon emissions, flood risks, pollution and pressure on water sources. This is all aimed at helping to ensure any development enhances the natural environment, leaving it in a better condition than before it took place.
The consultation runs until Monday 23 September 2019. You can find out more and comment at
