Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council have developed a joint plan for developing an area they call “Greater Cambridge”. This plan, which includes Bourn, has 19 proposed sites for new housing development and the infrastructure to support them. They exclude those already approved, including Bourn Airfield and West Cambourne. The good news for Bourn is the new sites do not include the areas previously offered by local landowners which surround our village. Check out the details and map here.

You can have your say by responding to the consultation here. You have until Monday 13 December. Your Parish Council will also be making a response on behalf of its residents.
