Dear Colleague

At the GCP Executive Board meeting on 22 November 2017 the following recommendations were adopted:

  • Approve the withdrawal of existing Park and Ride proposals at Babraham Village and Wild Country Organics, Great Abington, pending new larger sites being identified;
  • Agree public consultation on the three strategies subject to Strategy 1 being considered as an off-road public transport corridor with the most appropriate mode being the subject of further consideration and consultation at a later stage of scheme development following the outcome of this consultation;
  • The consultation to aim to begin in February 2018 following discussion with the Mayor and the Combined Authority on the content of the consultation;
  • Delegate authority to the Transport Director to approve public consultation materials in conjunction with the Chair and the Transport Portfolio Holder;
  • Approve environmental surveys to be carried out starting in January 2018 to meet seasonal windows for species;
  • Authorise officers to progress the design and planning of lower cost works within the public highway, not requiring consents, for early delivery, subject to consultation;
  • Change the official title of the project to Cambridge South East Transport Study

Strategy 1 as displayed to the LLF will be presented as a public transport corridor that could be either light rail or bus based, the mode of operation to be the subject of further consideration and further consultation.  An additional corridor will be added to Strategy 1 for potential routes via the disused railway and main line railway at Great Shelford.

Kind regards
