Adopted Policies Map

What is the Adopted Policies Map?

The Adopted Policies Map illustrates geographically the application of spatial policies within the South Cambridgeshire adopted Development Plan (i.e. allocations for development and policy areas to which a specific policy applies).

The Policies Map has been updated to reflect the Great Abington Former Land Settlement Association Estate Neighbourhood Plan made (adopted) in February 2019. At February 2019 the South Cambridgeshire Development Plan comprises the following documents:

The Policies Map will be kept up to date as new development plan documents covering the plan area (including Neighbourhood Plans) are adopted.

The Adopted Policies Map comprises a district-wide Policies Map together with Inset Maps for each of the major development sites and the villages.

In the February 2019 update, all the district-wide Maps and only those Inset Maps which include land within the Neighbourhood Area covered by the made (adopted) Great Abington Former Land Settlement Association Estate Neighbourhood Plan have been updated and therefore have a February 2019 date. All other Inset Maps within this Adopted Policies Map remain as published in September 2018 (when the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan was adopted) and therefore have that date.

Each set of maps includes a key to explain the symbols and notations. A number of the designations shown on the Policies Map are identified and provided by external organisations – see notes section of the Key.

There are two cases where the area covered by Area Action Plans means the maps for nearby villages are not entirely clear in respect of the area included within a Conservation Area. Under the plan making system, it is not possible to show an allocation or policy area on the Policies Map more than once. Therefore the full Longstanton and Teversham Conservation Area boundaries are shown on the maps below:
