Local Plan Open Day

Sat, 25 Nov 2017 10:00

The Parish Councillors are holding an Open Day to listen to your concerns regarding the review of the local plan. Please pop along the office anytime from 10am til 4pm on the 25th November 2017. Do you agree with the comments made below or do you think Cam needs a change, this is your chance to talk to officers..

Physical constraints include the floodplain that runs along the River Cam, together with the topography of the valley sides to the east, and the Cotswold escarpment to the southeast and southwest. There are a number of listed buildings, primarily within Upper and Lower Cam. Westfield and Bownace Woods and Cam Peak and Longdown Key Wildlife Sites lie to the southwest and southeast of the town respectively. The Cotswolds AONB adjoins the southern edge of the settlement and lies to the southeast. There are protected open spaces within the settlement and to the northwest.

The village is identified in the Local Plan as a First Tier settlement and has settlement development limits.

Landscape sensitivity - The preferred direction for housing growth in landscape terms is to the north/north east and east of the settlement. The preferred direction for employment growth in landscape terms is to the north/northeast. Accessibility Cam is identified as an Accessible Local Service Centre in the Local Plan. The settlement has a very strong local retail role. The main line rail station is the only strategic facility but there is very good accessibility to most key services and facilities, within the town and elsewhere. Access to services and facilities elsewhere is rated very good. Cam accommodates a large number of jobs.

Broad locations for future growth. There may be the following broad locations for further growth around the settlement, should growth be required:
CAM A South west of Manor Close (for housing and/or community uses only)
CAM B West of Draycott
CAM C North of Box Road
CAM D South of Draycott Farm
CAM E East of River Cam (for housing and/or community uses only) Sites with future potential Sites identified through the 2017 SALA are shown on the map (right). Sites outlined in red may have future potential. Sites outlined in blue are considered unsuitable or not available.
