Councillor attendance

Whilst any subsequent planning application relating to this site will be determined by the Planning Committee, all Councillors are invited to attend and take part in this pre-application developer presentation.

 

Purpose of the meeting

These meetings allow developers an early opportunity to present proposals for future planning applications to elected members of the Council.

 

The process allows Councillors to feed into the process at an early stage and raise any questions or concerns that can then be addressed by the developer prior to a formal planning application being submitted.

 

Whilst the meetings will be held in public, they do not form part of the formal decision making process. All planning applications will be determined in line with formal processes as adopted by Cambridge City Council.

PRE APPLICATION BRIEFING BY THE DEVELOPERS - The Forum and Papworth, Cambridge Biomedical Campus pdf icon PDF 3 MB

 

A number of applications will come forward in early 2014 on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

 

Members will be presented with the following:

 

Introduction by Principal Planning Officer: This will include an outline of the proposals coming forward and the Parking Strategy for Addenbrooke's.

 

Presentation by the Forum: Proposal to redevelop the existing car park east of Robinson Way and north of Keith Day Road for a private hospital, hotel and conference and learning centre. The hotel and conference centre will front Robinson Way and the hospital and education centre will front the new High Street

 

Presentation by Papworth hospital: Skanska have been selected to bring forward the relocation of Papworth hospital to the CBC between Robinson Way and Francis Crick Avenue.

 

Format of the Meeting

· Introduction by Principal Planning Officer - up to 10 minutes

· Presentation by the developer of the Forum – up to 20 minutes

· Opportunity for Members to ask questions, raise issues, seek clarification, comment on the apparent positive and less positive aspects of the proposal – up to 30 minutes

· Presentation by the developer of Papworth – up to 10 minutes

· Opportunity for Members to ask questions, raise issues, seek clarification, comment on the apparent positive and less positive aspects of the proposal – up to 20 minutes.

During this part of the meeting it is important that Councillors who may ultimately make the decision on any subsequent planning application do not feel unduly constrained by what they can ask or raise. However they should avoid expressing views that might give any appearance that they are approaching the proposal with a closed mind.

The discussion should not be used for negotiations with the developer. These should take place with officers separately from the meeting.

Members of the public must refrain from entering into the discussion at the meeting.
