Cambridge is one of the fastest growing cities in Western Europe. The scale of change we face threatens to destroy the character and ambience that makes Cambridge so special.
CambridgePPF seeks to influence the planning of new developments and the design of new communities, so that they are as attractive as possible as places for people to live and work,
to maintain and enhance the quality of the conservation areas, and to protect the green and historic character of the Cambridge area.
CambridgePPF does not support using green-belt land to build houses.
The National Planning Policy Framework lays down that green-belt
land should be released only under very special circumstances and
using it to build houses does not amount to very special circumstances.
CB1 is the name given to the extensive development near the station. It is the largest development project ever planned for Cambridge (estimated cost £ 850 million), and is the City's most important gateway.
