Snap Shot At Northstowe Design Event


A photo gallery will be on display in Longstanton tomorrow (Saturday 18 May) to help residents give their views on how the town of Northstowe should look and feel.

Council planning bosses are urging people to drop in at any time during the two hour session to give their thoughts on photos taken at developments from up-and-down the country.

Ahead of detailed planning applications being submitted by developers for the first 1,500 homes at the new town, work is being done on a design code which sets standards and a vision for what the development will be like.

Further drop-in events are also planned later in the year to discuss topics such as drainage, retail and transport.

The event this Saturday will be held at Longstanton Village Institute, 24 High Street, between 10am and 12 noon.

Cllr Tim Wotherspoon, South Cambridgeshire District Council’s cabinet member for Northstowe, said: “These events are a great chance to get residents together, talk about the latest developments for the new town and most importantly gather views to help shape plans. The session is on for two hours but you can pop in for as long or little as you want.”
