Representations on Draft Open Space and Recreation Strategy - June 2011 - Protected Open Spaces in East Chesterton Ward

Representation ID: 5544

OBJECT Bidwells represented by Bidwells (Mr Michael Hendry)

Summary:

It is inappropriate to designate buildings as protected Open Space either public or private. The development or re-development of buildings within the City is already restricted. The inclusion of buildings prevents institutions and landowners from redeveloping existing buildings restricting the future success of the City. All buildings should be excluded from protected open space designation. The Open Space and Recreation Strategy must not designate open space as protected before the Local Plan Review. A holistic approach to growth within Cambridge is needed. The City Council risks creating a problem through the premature sterilisation of land.
