Open meeting, in the Mill Road, Wednesday 19th February 2020 7:30pm
This public meeting will be led by Katie Thornburrow, Executive City Councillor for Planning.
Turn up – no pre-booking needed – hear what’s in store and ask questions. Have your say!
This plan will affect the way we live, work, travel and play in 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, and meeting the challenges we face.
But it’s not just about the economy or development: the Local Plan is an important tool to he|p us become a net zero carbon society, and to meeting our target of doubling biodiversity in the area.
Greater Cambridge Local Plan – The Big Debate
An evening of quickfire presentations from local groups and lively debate about the future of Greater Cambridge.
Tuesday 18th February 2020 18:30 – 21:00 GMT
Cambridge Corn Exchange, 2 Wheeler Street, Cambridge CB2 3QB
As part of the ‘First Conversation’ consultation on the new Greater Cambridge Local Plan, local groups have been invited to share their ideas about the future of the Greater Cambridge Area. In a fun, quickfire format, eight local groups will present and debate their ideas, with a chance for you to pose your questions too.
Unlike the Mill Road meeting, booking is essential for The Big Debate.
The presentations will be highly visual, and will range from the provocative to the poetic and everything in between. The event will start at 6:30pm promptly, but you can arrive from 6pm to grab a seat and a drink before the start.
Places are limited. Greater Cambridge Shared Planning would like to limit the number of people who book but don’t show up and are charging a £3 deposit to secure your place, which will be refunded straight after the event.
We’ll modify this post after the events. If you would like to send us a report please use this link to email us after the events, and we’ll add your to the post.
Shorter comments are also welcome, below, but should be polite.
