Greater Cambridge Local Plan Issues and Options  – Upcoming Consultation

Greater Cambridge Local Plan Issues and Options  – Upcoming Consultation in January 2020 
It is a very exciting time for Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council, with work underway on a new joint Local Plan that will affect the future of Greater Cambridge over the next 20 years.  

The Councils are preparing to carry out a public consultation called: Greater Cambridge Local Plan – The First Conversation.  The consultation will start the conversation about the kind of place we want Greater Cambridge to be in the future. It will explore the ‘big themes’ –climate change, biodiversity, social inclusion and great places - that will influence how homes, jobs and infrastructure are planned, and where growth might go.   

This is advance notice that consultation will run between 9am Monday 13 January and 5pm Monday 24 February 2020.  

During the consultation we will be taking a pop-up ‘roadshow’ to places around the area.

We will also be holding a ‘Big Debate’ on the evening of 18 February, where we are inviting local groups to share their ideas about what should be in the Local Plan, in a fun, provocative and lively public event. If you are interested in being one of the groups to present, please contact Hana Loftus at Also look out for details about how to book your seat in the audience on the night, when we open the consultation in January. 

The consultation will go live on 13 January – you will be able to explore all the material, and share your views, on
