Major IT issue

Thank you for your patience whilst IT have been resolving the problems. The majority of our systems are now back online and IT are working hard to resolve the final few.

Nearly all problems have been resolved, although customers may still get a "delivery failure" reply if emailing a Council department.

You can still carry out most transactions on our website. If you need to contact us by phone and your call is urgent we will try to help you. If your call is not urgent please contact us in the latter half of next week as we anticipate the first half of the week to be extremely busy.

We apologise for any inconvenience while we work to resolve this problem.

Cambridge Northern Fringe East

Cambridge Northern Fringe East (CNFE) Background

We are considering the Cambridge Northern Fringe East (CNFE) area, which is one of the most important brownfield regeneration opportunities in the Greater Cambridge area. The new railway station provides a catalyst for an exciting opportunity to create a high quality employment led mixed use development. The Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire Local Plans (submitted in March 2014) both propose the preparation of an Area Action Plan for the CNFE area.

Cambridge North Station - Opened May 2017

The planning proposal also included 450 space rail station car park, 1000 cycle park, a main vehicular access road to the station, the creation of access routes to the Guided Busway, pedestrian and cycle links to the surrounding areas and extension to the existing Cambridge Guided Busway. The station opened in May 2017, however if you wish to view the plans, visit our planning portal

Outline planning permission for the development of Cambridge North Station and associated infrastructure was issued on 26 September 2016.
