Update following FeCRA workshop

On Saturday 16th June, officers from the planning policy team attended a workshop organised by FeCRA at Wolfson Court.  We gave a series of presentations about the content of the Issues and Options report and some of the key areas being considered such as broad locations for growth and the number of new homes and jobs for the city.  Residents were then able to ask officers about these and other key issues facing the city, including the approach being taken with South Cambridgeshire District Council and Cambridgeshire County Council to ensure a coordinated approach to growth across the districts.  Other areas of interest included the approach being taken around the new railway station in Chesterton and how we would ensure that growth would not lead to increased traffic congestion across the city. 

The workshop was well attended and allowed for an engaging and lively debate about the issues facing the city over the next twenty years.  We would like to thank the FeCRA committee for organising the event, and residents for giving up their time on a Saturday morning to attend.  A further series of exhibitions are going to be held across the city to allow more residents to come and speak to officers about the Issues and Options Report.  Please see the Issues and Options website for more details.
