Local Plans for Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire Found Sound

Douglas Edwards QC

Inspectors appointed to examine the local plans for Cambridge City and for South Cambridgeshire District have issued their reports, following a joint examination, and have found both plans to be sound. The examination process, which lasted several years, considered a range of detailed and complex issues concerning wide ranging development needs of the two local authority areas and the strategy to meeting those needs. Of particular note is that the Inspectors found sound the use of the Liverpool method for addressing unmet housing need and the use of a joint housing trajectory, covering both local authority areas.

Douglas Edwards QC was instructed to represent Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council at the joint examination.
