Cambridge South East Transport Environmental Impact Assessment

Good Morning

The new public transport route between the A11 at Babraham and Cambridge was approved in principle by the Greater Cambridge Partnership Executive Board in June 2020. As part of the scheme development process we will be conducting a full Environmental Impact Assessment.

We are pleased to announce that the consultation has opened today and we are now seeking your views on the design of the proposals and how we could best manage and mitigate possible impacts. It will run for the next eight weeks, closing on 14 December 2020.

Ordinarily we would meet in person at our public events. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing need for social distancing we won’t be holding face to face events.   In light of this, the consultation will be held online. All materials, videos, an interactive map, as well as a virtual consultation room, are available on our webpages:

However, we recognise that not everyone has internet access and we don’t want to exclude people from being able to respond, therefore, if you do not have access to the internet, you can register for a postal information pack by telephoning 01223 699906.

The GCP is also launching a separate consultation on our Waterbeach to Cambridge scheme today and you may have received two emails from us today. We felt it important to differentiate these two schemes and have therefore separated them in communication. We apologise if this has caused any inconvenience.
