Coldhams Lane is the site of an ongoing development project, led by the Anderson Group. Focusing on three parcels of land, located off of Coldhams Lane and to the south of Cambridge Airport, the development has been in planning for a number of years, and has undergone a number of different stages. Each parcel of land has a significantly different proposal – Parcel A is proposed to house a variety of space-intensive commercial development, Parcel B is a proposed ecology zone, and Parcel C is a proposed urban park for the Cambridge area, taking into consideration pre-existing lakes and ecological settings.
Stomor has been involved in a number of different elements of the Coldhams Lane development – including, but not limited to, Transport Assessments, Travel Plans, Flood Risk Assessments, and public consultation works.
The scale and location of the development means that the traffic to and from the site is significant and may have an impact on the Cambridge transport network as a whole. Stomor undertook detailed modelling for the road network surrounding the site, and found that the proposals did not lead to capacity being exceeded on the highway network at any pressure points.
As part of any major development, especially those in pre-existing urban landscapes, there must be a heavy focus on gauging and accounting for the opinions of the local population. Stomor has been involved in a number of consultations and public events for the Coldhams Lane site – including a weekend event in nearby Cherry Hinton, where Stomor offered guidance on issues of drainage and access to members of the public.
