Greater Cambridge Local Plan
Your ideas. Our future.
The new Local Plan is the most important document you’ve (probably) never heard of. It will affect how we live, work and play in Greater Cambridge over the next 20 years and beyond. Read more about the Greater Cambridge Local Plan.
We have been developing the evidence base for the plan, and testing possible growth levels and strategic spatial options for the Plan. We have now (November 2020) published a set of initial reports including a Sustainability Appraisal.
This includes new baseline data about the Greater Cambridge area, insights into the amount of development that we may need to plan for in the future, and expert assessments about the pros and cons of different possible approaches. Read about some of the key findings on where to build, and how much.
You can read the reports, including the Development Strategy Options Summary Report, in the Document Library. These are interim findings which will be developed further as the Plan is progressed, and a range of other studies are also being developed. No decisions have been made yet about what the eventual strategy will be.
We held a public webinar Q&A and a series of 6 stakeholder engagement workshops following the release of the initial evidence base findings, to explore key lines of enquiry with our communities.
