Environmental Impact Assessment Public Consultation 16 May to 11 July 2022
Following three public consultations and extensive technical work to determine a preferred Cambourne to Cambridge (C2C) Public Transport and Active Travel route, we’re now in the process of undertaking an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). An EIA is required as part of a portfolio of evidence to be submitted to the Department for Transport in the application to build the scheme. It includes information from a host of surveys and assessments looking at, for example, ecology, landscape and cultural heritage, along with feedback from stakeholders to help inform design, including residents and landowners, as well as organisations such as Natural England and the Environment Agency.
During consultation, starting today, we’re seeking your views on how we can best manage and mitigate impacts of the scheme on the landscape and environment.
To request a printed copy, a print copy in large print, Braille, in another language or on audio tape, please call 01223 699906.
We’re also running webinars and public events, and coming to community meetings, including local parish council meetings, to share and discuss proposals. Find out more online – www.greatercambridge.org.uk/c2c-eia
Consultation closes at midday on Monday 11 July 2022.
About the scheme
The Cambourne to Cambridge (C2C) project is a new public transport route from the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP), proposed to link Cambourne to Cambridge via the new Bourn Airfield development, a new Travel Hub at Scotland Farm, Hardwick and West Cambridge campus. The project is one of four corridor schemes which, together with measures to free up the congested city centre, a network of cycling and walking Greenways, and other infrastructure improvements, aim to create more sustainable, accessible and reliable ways to travel in and around Cambridge.
