Mill Road cumulative impact area consultation

Consultation runs from 13 November 2017, 12:00am to 4 February 2018, 11:59pm

Introduction and background

Under our statement of licensing policy, we adopted a special policy relating to cumulative impact in relation to certain areas of Cambridge. One of the areas currently specified in the special policy is Mill Road, excluding Brookfields.

We are required to review the special policy regularly to assess whether it is still needed. As part of the review, statistics were provided breaking down the total number of alcohol-related crimes and incidents by ward.

These figures have brought into question whether there is sufficient evidence for the Romsey area of Mill Road – from the railway bridge to Brookfields – to remain part of the special policy on cumulative impact.

Consultation information

We want to know whether you think the Romsey area of Mill Road should remain a part of the cumulative impact area or be removed from it.

Send any comments you have about the proposal to the contact details below. All comments received will be considered, although we are not able to give an individual response to each comment received.


If you have any questions about this consultation, contact Commercial and Licensing team at or 01223 457890.

Post any correspondence to Commercial and Licensing team, Cambridge City Council, PO Box 700, Cambridge CB1 0JH.

Next steps

A decision will be made by the Licensing Committee in March 2018. We will publish the results of the consultation here in April 2018.
