Call for sites

Greater Cambridge Local Plan – The first conversation

The Councils are consulting on the Greater Cambridge Local Plan – The First Conversation (Issues and Options 2020) between 13 January 2020 and 24 February 2020.

If you wish to put any further sites to us through this Issues and Options consultation, a site form can be found on our website, setting out the information that we need. There is no need to resubmit sites you have already provided to the Councils as part of the Call for Sites 2019.

We will also be commissioning evidence identifying opportunities for large scale new green space in Greater Cambridge given the importance this has as part of our overall strategy for the plan. To support this work, you can submit sites for open space, wildlife habitats or other green space uses to us through this Issues and Options Consultation. A site form can be found on our website, setting out the information that we need.

Call for Sites - February 2019

As part of the development of the new Greater Cambridge Joint Local Plan in February and March 2019 we carried out a ‘call for sites’, allowing people to suggest potential sites or broad locations for development. We have received a wide range of housing and employment site suggestions ranging from small sites in villages to freestanding new communities.

Not all of the sites proposed in the Call for Sites will be found to be suitable, available or achievable. We will assess each site which meets minimum size and capacity criteria against a common assessment methodology and publish our findings in a report which will form part of the evidence base supporting the new Local Plan.
