Northstowe Allotments

Work has been carried out to rectify the water logging at the Phase 1 Northstowe allotment and orchard land. 

Before these works were commissioned, we used the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning service pre application service to ensure these works could be carried out without a further planning application and to ensure the solution was in line with the drainage strategy. 

The documents below form the pre application which was submitted which include the soil investigation report which recommends land drainage, the proposal and diagram and confirmation of the outfall. The Pre Application response is also included.
