Local councillors object to Northstowe Phase 3a plans - not enough green separation
Consultation on outline plans for Northstowe Phase 3a, the part of the development closest to Oakington, closed on 14th July. Thank you to all those who contributed, especially Oakington Parish Council and their working group, including members of TAG, the EAG and the Flood Mitigation Group, for their diligence in reviewing the application on behalf of residents.
Alex and Sarah objected to the application due to inadequate green separation, inappropriate housing on the southern edges of Northstowe closest to Oakington - including three-storey housing - and concerns about increased traffic and the location of the proposed Southern Access Road East.
We also asked for robust and enforceable planning conditions on working hours, noise and dust monitoring and mitigation, and the prohibition of any construction traffic through the village. We asked for firm commitments from Homes England on flood attenuation for the village if plans are approved.
We are expecting the application to go to the council’s Planning Committee in the autumn and will let you know when we have a confirmed date. We will be there to raise our objections and residents are also very welcome to attend.
Community Governance Review: Longstanton, Oakington and Northstowe to remain separate
Alex and Sarah are supporting the redrawn boundaries from Oakington Parish Council, which will keep Longstanton, Oaskington and Northstowe as separate parishes. Those who live north of the busway will be part of Willingham parish council.
This second round of consultation for the CGR has been extended for three months and is now running until 15th September. Further details can be found online, where you can view and comment on the three options proposed as part of the second phase of the consultation. All three involve Oakington and Westwick remaining a separate parish and retaining the green separation land with Northstowe as part of the parish. Full details, maps and a link to submit comments can be found here: https://www.scambs.gov.uk/cgr-lown
