North East Cambridge Community Forum

North East Cambridge Forum

Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC) have been running community forums for several years. These are open, public meetings bringing together stakeholders, residents, planners and developers to discuss and disseminate information regarding the development of specific major growth sites. They have no powers, funding or voting rights but help dialogue between those building and those most affected by the development. They have been chaired by local, or relevant, Councillors and assisted by senior officers at the meetings. Notes and presentations of the meetings are recorded and posted on the local authorities web-pages.

North East Cambridge (NEC) includes 182 hectares of brownfield land, just a 15-minute cycle ride from the city centre. Funding from central government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund to relocate the Cambridge Waste Water Treatment Plant creates a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the area and create a significant new city district.  The Greater Cambridge Shared Planning service are developing an Area Action Plan for the North East Cambridge area to guide all development in the area over the next 20 years.

Due to the cross-boundary nature of the proposed developable area, SCDC and City Councils are working together to facilitate this community forum which aims to provide a space for local residents to engage with developers and public sector bodies about NEC.

The forum has an alternating Chair and includes representatives from:

  • South Cambridgeshire District Council
  • Cambridge City Council
  • Greater Cambridge Planning Service
  • Cambridgeshire County Council 

Please note: This forum will be taking place virtually on Zoom until further notice. Attendees are reminded that these virtual forums are being recorded but that individual attendees will not be recorded, only the Chair and presenters. Your name may be read out and recorded if a question is asked. The raised hand function can be used to ask verbal questions.
