Greening South Cambs Hall Consultation

Greening South Cambs Hall Consultation
Name Greening South Cambs Hall
Description Planning permission for our Cambourne Offices for a Solar carport system and a ground source heat pump.
Start date 26/05/2020
Closing date 16/06/2020

We've pledged to make the district zero carbon by 2050. On 5 February 2020, the council approved the £1.9 million retrofit of its Cambourne Offices, including measures to dramatically reduce energy bills and almost halve the carbon emissions from the building in year 1. 

Planning permission is currently being sought for:

  1. Solar carport system – generating renewable energy to supply 20% of the building’s electricity demand (see image)
  2. Ground source heat pump (GSHP) – providing low carbon heating to supply the building and decrease the building’s gas consumption by a minimum of 79%

Get involved

Comment on the planning application via the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Portal, using reference 20/02195/FUL.  

The consultation is open from Wednesday 27 May to Wednesday 17 June 2020.
