Local Plan changes
SCDC are revising their Long Term Development Framework (LDF) for 2016 onwards. This raised a number of potential sites proposed for development which are within our Village boundary and issues relating to how SCDC should plan for this future. Comberton Parish Council have responded to this consultation on behalf of the village as a whole.
In response to a request from The Annual Parish Meeting, Comberton Parish Council (CPC) was mandated to prepare material detailing why the village should be protected from large scale development. It set up a working group to do so and asked our SCDC Councillor Stephen Harangozo to support and assist the group.
The working group which was made up of some Councillors but mostly residents from across the village, prepared draft responses which send out for consultation with the village before their adoption and subsequent forwarding to SCDC.
The earlier responses from Comberton Parish Council and supportive documents in 2012 can be seen here.
In response to the LDF consultation Option 2 in January / February 2013 a Comberton specific leaflet was produced and distributed to all Comberton residents seeking their views on the issues directly affecting Comberton.
