Consultation launched on options for small section of CSET route
People can now have their say on options to change a short section of the Cambridge South East Transport (CSET) busway route.
A targeted public consultation on a minor segment of the CSET busway and active travel route at the site of a new care village at Stapleford has been launched today.
The Executive Board agreed the route and approved the submission of a Transport and Works Act Order to the Government in July 2021.
But a planning application for a retirement care village along a small segment of the agreed route – which was initially refused by South Cambridgeshire District Council – was approved by the planning inspector on appeal in December 2021.
The GCP has identified a solution and people can now share their views on two options, which are both minor deviations of the original route, to avoid the care village.
The dedicated busway and active travel route would provide significantly improved public transport journeys into the city centre and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus from growing communities in the south-east, helping to cut congestion and improve air quality along the busy A1307 corridor.
The consultation opened today (July 11) and people need to share their views via the online survey on the GCP’s ConsultCambs engagement website by midday on 22 August.
