Message from our Councillors
The consultation in January and February 2020 was the first stage towards preparing the Greater Cambridge Local Plan - a new joint Local Plan for Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire. Together, we will shape the Plan over the next few years, and this was the start of that conversation.
The next Local Plan will affect the way we live, work and play in Greater Cambridge over the next 20 years and beyond. We are committed to growing our economy, and planning for new homes and jobs which meet the needs of all our community, meeting the climate change challenge. The Local Plan is an important tool to help us become a net zero carbon society, and towards meeting our target of doubling biodiversity.
A huge thank you to everyone who got involved by commenting online, attended one of our roadshows or the Big Debate event.
