Neighbouring Local Authorities
Whenever we prepare a new Local Plan (see glossary), we collaborate with our neighbours on strategic cross-boundary issues. For the next Local Plan we consider that these include:
Assessing housing need, including Gypsy & Traveller accommodation needs.
Wildlife habitats and green infrastructure (see glossary).
Carbon offsetting and renewable energy generation.
Water, including supply, quality, wastewater and flood risk.
We will also need to consider the impact of planned growth on the edges of Greater Cambridge (see glossary), such as the proposal for a North Uttlesford Garden Community in the draft Uttlesford Local Plan currently undergoing examination.
