From “About the Greater Cambridge Local Plan” (Greater Cambridge Shared Planning, 2020):

“Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council are working together to create a joint Local Plan for the two areas – which we are referring to as Greater Cambridge. This is the first time we will have a joint Local Plan, and it will ensure that there is a consistent approach to planning and building across both areas over the next 20 years.

“A Local Plan is a legal document that the Councils are required to prepare, which sets out the future land use and planning policies for the area over a set time period. It sets out the amount of new homes and jobs that should be planned for; the services and infrastructure that are needed to support this change; and where new development should happen, and where should be protected from development”
