A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet Road Improvement scheme

Received 09 June 2021
From Brown & Co on behalf of Gemma Jane Gape Tucker

Representation

This representation is made on behalf of Mrs GJG Tucker as owner and [Redacted] of the land identified as plots 14/8a, 14/8b, 14/8c, 14/8d, 14/8e and 14/8f. My client is concerned regarding the electrical diversion on their land as this is the supply for Pastures Farmhouse and the agricultural buildings. My client wants to ensure that an adequate supply is put in place for the dwellings and buildings following the scheme and diversion. My client has also agreed with Highways England that they will be contacted during these works to ensure that appropriate services can also be connected to their retained farm buildings. My client understands from the plans submitted for the Development Consent order that a new roundabout access is to be included as the Caxton Gibbet West roundabout and my clients request further details on the width and type of access to be created here. It is also noted that the cycle lane included from Caxton Gibbet running south is not linking to any of the proposed paths included within the Cambourne development and my client would ask that the scheme revisit the proposed cycle path to ensure it links appropriately with local cycle networks. My client is concerned regarding land drainage on the fields affected by the scheme. My client seeks confirmation that drainage surveys will be undertaken prior to entry to ensure that land drainage can be put in place prior to any damage being caused. My client practices Regenerative Agriculture and has invested considerable time and money into creating high quality, biologically healthy, well structured soil. My client seeks confirmation that appropriate soil surveys and consideration will be given to this on the temporary land take to ensure they are returned to them in the same condition following completion of the scheme. My client also seeks confirmation of the boundary treatments along the route to ensure the security of his property both during construction and following completion. My client will require access to all land at all times during construction of the project and seeks confirmation that this will be available and details on the proposed method of works to ensure that access is not interrupted. Accordingly our client will represent that the DCO should be amended to reflect the matters set out above.
