What is the Foodstore Provision in North West Cambridge Informal Planning Policy Guidance?

We, along with Cambridge City Council, have produced joint Informal Planning Policy Guidance (IPPG) on Foodstore Provision in North West Cambridge.

The IPPG sets out a strategy for foodstore provision in North West Cambridge of two medium sized supermarkets of 2,000 sqm net floorspace, one in the local centre at the University site and one in the local centre at the NIAB site, and one small supermarket in the local centre at Orchard Park. The IPPG also sets out a number of development principles in relation to the development of foodstores and local centres, which should be followed by developers.
