SCDC LOCAL PLAN...
SCDC have revised their Local Plan using a Long Term Development Framework (LDF) for 2016 onwards. This raised a number of potential sites proposed for development of which 9 were within our Village boundary.
The Parish Council set up a working party (including non councillors) to address the important issues these developments would have if these were considered viable by SCDC.
The Parish Council brought together arguments concerning these sites (and those adjacent to Comberton) and their potential impact on the life of Comberton for presentation to SCDC following an endorsement at a public meeting in Comberton in September 2012.
In addition Cambs County Council revised their Transport Strategy.
Update Sept 2013 - The nine original sites were condensed down to four sites for Comberton and were consulted at the end of 2012, again resisted by CPC but these are NOT in the new plan - in line with Parish views.
However a new proposal for 90 houses at Bennell Farm, plus a football pitch and changing facilities for the village of TOFT and an additional car park for CVC is now in the SCDC Local Plan being submitted to the Planning Inspectorate.
Furthermore Comberton is reclassified as a Minor Rural Centre, which means that the restriction on houses per development within the village framework rises from 8 to 30.
The LDF issues relating to Comberton are noted here.
