On Monday 13 January we will be starting the first conversation with our communities on the new Local Plan. Please check back here for more information and for how you can get involved. 

What is a Local Plan?

A Local Plan is a legal document that shows how our area will change over the coming decades. It sets out:

  • What we build in the area

  • Where we build

  • How we build

What is the Greater Cambridge Local Plan?

Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council are working together to prepare a joint Local Plan for the Greater Cambridge area. Our next Local Plan will be shaped by the key themes of:

  • Climate change

  • Biodiversity and green spaces

  • Wellbeing and social inclusion

  • Creation of great places

Further details on the Local Plan process can be viewed on South Cambridgeshire District Council and Cambridge City Council
