Peter­bor­ough’s new Lo­cal Plan

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - PT CAMPAIGN -

The first draft of Peter­bor­ough’s new Lo­cal Plan was re­vealed in Oc­to­ber 2016.

The plan set out the need for 27,625 new homes and 22,024 new jobs to be cre­ated in the city up un­til 2036.

The most eye-catch­ing de­vel­op­ment were the 2,500 planned prop­er­ties north of Cas­tor and Ailsworth. The pro­pos­als also in­cluded a new coun­try park between Cas­tor and Ailsworth and it was sug­gested the new set­tle­ment (called the Great Kyne) may also in­clude univer­sity fa­cil­i­ties. How­ever, op­po­si­tion quickly formed against the pro­pos­als, in­clud­ing from North West Cam­bridgeshire MP Shailesh Vara who said the de­vel­op­ment would be “com­pletely out of keep­ing with the lo­cal area and will set a dan­ger­ous prece­dent for fur­ther de­vel­op­ment in the open coun­try­side.”

Other pro­pos­als in the draft plan in­clude 250 homes in the vil­lage of Eye.
