It is proposed that a new Community Hub is built on the site of the Meadows.
This will replace both the current Meadows Community Centre and Buchan Street Neighbourhood Centre, with the new facility integrating priority community groups and activities into this one new community space. In addition to the new Community Hub, the scheme will deliver approximately 100 affordable homes in total across the two sites in order to assist with the delivery of 500 new affordable homes across the city.
The county council is currently conducting a public consultation for the Benson North area in West Cambridge. This consultation will close 15 March 2019.

Tesco appear to have asked the County Council to enable them to drive lorries into their store from Sedgwick Street (despite moving in in 2009 knowing that this was prohibited).
The proposal would make Sedgwick Street two-way for driving for 57m, then one-way for driving after that.
Cambridge City Council through the Environmental Improvement Programme (EIP) have allocated funding to improve the streetscape by increasing the number of trees along on Chesterton Road. We have identified a number of potential locations for new trees as shown on the 2 maps below.
Currently we have funding available for a smaller number of trees then shown on the plans below. We wish to prioritise a number of these trees for the first phase of works. We would hope to be able to plant further trees when and if we get additional funding.
This consultation gives local residents and stakeholders an opportunity to comment on and rate the potential tree location options put forward.
All the potential locations will need to take into account highways infrastructure and underground utilities services, which may affect the locations currently being considered.
This consultation will end at noon on Friday the 15th of February 2018.

Cambridgeshire County Council has published proposals and consultation to introduce a residents’ parking scheme in the streets around York Street and New Street.
This is a long-overdue scheme.
There are a couple of issues:
- Building support for the scheme - residents' parking proposals have a key strategic role in reducing traffic, by almost eliminating circulation by drivers speculatively looking for parking.
- Making the case for the scheme in the face of opposition in a few streets because of a reduction in spaces where there is currently parking on both sides of the street (which means domination of the space for private motor vehicle storage).
- At last, elimination of pavement parking and the ability to enforce any pavement overrun.
- No cycle parking is proposed.
Developer Anderson Group is hosting a community planning weekend later this month to give residents the chance to draw up a masterplan for land south of Coldhams Lane.
“It’s about building good quality houses in good quality communities,” the company’s Christian Criscione told the Cambridge Independent ahead of a launch of the project on Tuesday (October 30).
The former quarry and landfill site includes the Cherry Hinton lakes and land parcels to the north of the railway line.
It has been identified by Cambridge City Council as an “area of major change” and the authority has been actively promoting the land for regeneration with “appropriate redevelopment”.
As well as built development such as housing, the council has expressed ideas including the opening of the lakes, environmental improvements, outdoor recreation areas and a new urban country park.

The City and South Cambridgeshire councils are working in collaboration to prepare an Area Action Plan (AAP) to govern the future redevelopment and regeneration of the Cambridge Northern Fringe area.
Air quality in central Cambridge is not as good as it should be. The city is not compliant with EU limit values or UK national air quality objectives for nitrogen dioxide in the city centre and on busy roads – although it is improving slowly. The City Council's Air Quality Action Plan was approved unanimously at Environment Scrutiny Committee on March 13 and they are now opening it out to consultation (21 June - 18 September 2018).
Many of the proposed actions are of interest to Camcycle, but in particular:
• Reducing Heavy Goods Vehicles emissions in the city centre by promoting ‘greener’ methods for making deliveries of goods, such as by cycle or electric vehicles
• Using planning policies to ensure new communities are designed to make it easy for people to use sustainable modes of transport
• Improving public health by providing information about the health impacts of air quality and encouraging everyone to have a more active lifestyle, including walking and cycling
Is the Cycling Campaign writing a response to the DEFRA consultation on how to reform the CAP post-Brexit ? Does anyone know if other (national) cycling groups have responded ?
I was thinking that the public good of opening up private farm tracks would be beneficial to commuter and leisure cyclists. For instance I'm sure there's a farm near Grantchester which allows cyclists through, but you need special permission (live in a specific village ?). There must be other examples, where opening up to all cyclists would help commuters from villages.
The documentation is here:

It is long winded form, but you can skip pages which you have no interest or knowledge of. However, this is the question which may be of most interest to us:
1. How can we improve the delivery of the current Countryside Stewardship scheme and increase uptake by farmers and land managers to help achieve valuable environmental outcomes?
Replacement of existing community centre with a more accessible one
At the moment if you need to report a road traffic accident you must do so in person at a police station or to a police constable.
This proposals in this consultation would allow police forces to offer drivers the option of submitting accident reports by other methods.
The proposals would require changes to Section 170 of the Road Traffic Act 1988.
This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 24 April 2018
1 Section 170 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 (“the Act”) requires drivers involved in
certain traffic accidents which occur on the road or other public place to report the
accident in person at a police station, or to a constable.
2 Reporting accidents in person puts burdens on drivers, businesses and police forces.
Therefore the Government proposes to amend the Act to allow police forces to offer
drivers the option of submitting accident reports by other methods.
3 We expect that, as a result of this change, police forces will offer drivers the option of
reporting accidents online or by telephone. This will make it simpler, quicker and
cheaper for drivers to fulfil their statutory obligation to report the accident, and for the
police to record the accident details.
``Invites those with an interest in improving safety of cyclists and pedestrians to provide evidence, drawing on experience from the UK or other countries, that can be used to shape future policy decisions.
Active travel, making journeys by physically active means such as cycling and walking, has huge potential benefits both for individuals and for our wider society. The Government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, published in April 2017, set out our aim to make cycling and walking the natural choices for shorter journeys or as part of a longer journey.
We have made good progress to date; Government spending on cycling trebled between 2010 and 2017, and on average people are cycling further than they did ten years ago. In some cities, notably London, there has been a sharp increase in the level of cycling. But there is much more to do, and our ambition in this review goes further still: to make cycling the natural mode of transport even for a 12 year old.
Since the cycle safety review was announced, the Department has worked closely with cycling, walking and wider road safety organisations to identify the main issues that should be tackled as a priority to improve safety between cyclists and other road users. During that process of engagement, it became clear how many actual and potential policy areas were relevant to cyclists and pedestrians alike.
Given our strong commitment to cycling and walking, we have therefore decided to use this review to consider safety measures that will bring cycling and walking closer together as part of our overall ambition to increase active travel.
Cycling, like walking, needs to be universally seen as easy, fun and safe. Safety, and the perception of safety, are vital if we are to create a rapid increase in the use of active travel.
The truth is that cycling is generally very safe, and serious accidents are rare. But we need to make it safer still, for all road users, so that it becomes a default mode of transport, whatever one’s age or background. But safety does not simply include road safety - it also includes physical health and well-being, in a clean and green environment. The evidence is clear: cycling and walking have the capacity to transform the health and well-being, not only of people who walk and cycle themselves, but of everyone in society.
We now have a great opportunity: to recast local and national approaches to active travel, and create a new world of genuinely multimodal transport. But to do this we need your help, ideas and evidence. This consultation document summarises some of the key evidence for change, and then highlights key areas in which we are seeking your views.
We are looking for great ideas, for evidence of what works, for examples of good practice from other countries, for innovative technologies, for imaginative solutions, and for idealism tempered with a sense of the practical. Over to you!
Cambridge City Council, using S106 funding, plan to reinforce the 1 metre wide grass edges of the footpaths on Parker's Piece, where issues of ground churn (mud) have been identified.
The reinforcement implementation method is proposed to be via plastic geo-cells, set on a suitable sub-base, wrapped in geotextile and covered with turf and/or grass seed.
The construction is designed to be porous, with the foundation being able to store excess water thereby reducing puddles and muddy areas that are currently forming on the path edges.
This should improve the grass edges for pedestrian and cycles without losing the grass covering.
The proposed improvement sections are the paths running from the centre of the open space around Reality Checkpoint to the University Arms Hotel, and to the kiosk/toilets adjacent to Gonville Place.
The majority of the reinforcements will be 1 metre wide. At the access near the kiosk/toilet, this width will be increased due to the high volume of traffic in the area and historical damage.
The latest in the government's insatiable thirst for blowing money on roads (induced demand, what's that?) might have a silver lining as one of the objectives is 'support all road users'. I think we should submit a response. Basic outline: they should apply IAN 195/16 on this proposed Major Road Network.
Regarding Cambridge, the most immediately affected road would be the A10 north of the A14, and possibly south of Trumpington. The 'Major Road Network' in the vicinity of is the A14, M11, A11, A505 and the A10.
Consultation on changes to Cambridge City Council’s car park prices from 1 April 2018.
We wish to consult with as wide a cross section of the community as possible to highlight the changes we would like to make to car park prices and season ticket costs on 1 April 2018.
We continue to look for effective ways to manage congestion, especially during the 8 to 10am morning rush hour, and so this year propose the introduction of an additional charge for vehicles parking between these times together with a high increase in car park season tickets for business users.
We hope this will help to encourage the use of vehicles in the less busy periods of the day, and ideally help people transfer to alternative methods of accessing the city that cause less congestion and pollution.
Cambridge City Council and Cambridgeshire County Council, through the Minor Highways Improvement Programme funding, propose to make lighting improvements to the Driftway road.
The Driftway accesses Lammas Land public car park, and links to one of the main cycle and pedestrian commuter routes from the city centre to the west of the city, and vice versa.
The Driftway currently has no lighting, and as a result is very dark along the whole length. The lack of light makes this route potentially dangerous for users, particularly cyclists and pedestrians.
This consultation gives local residents and stakeholders an opportunity to comment on issues relating to this proposed project.
'My ambition is to ensure that people with physical and hidden disabilities have the same access to transport and opportunities to travel as everyone else. This consultation seeks to understand what more needs to be done to improve transport accessibility and is my first major action as Accessibility Minister.'
We should respond to this consultation.
Fulbourn will be one of the first Greenways to undergo consultation.
Motion for Camcycle AGM 2016: Street Cycle Parking
Providing secure places to park bicycles is a simple and effective way to encourage cycling by making people on bikes feel welcome. In some areas of Cambridge residents have got used to all the spare street space being allocated to the storage of motor vehicles and very little for bikes. The result has been badly parked bikes cluttering hallways, clinging to drainpipes and other street furniture. The experience on Thoday Street where some on-carriageway racks have been installed is a good example of how the problem can be addressed.
Camcycle resolves to:
1. Champion the replacement of on street car parking with cycle parking where it is clearly needed
2. Identify streets where this should and can be achieved
3. Work with local councillors to survey demand
4. Where there is sufficient local support work with local councillors to prepare proposals for funding. For example, from the Local Highways Improvement fund.
This motion was passed by 46 to one.
