Why I am campaigning to support the Biomedical Campus & surrounding residents
There is a vision for the Cambridge Biomedical Campus,
s the continued expansion of the Biomedical Campus and the considerable local concerns about the proposals, not least the possible inclusion of up 6,000 new homes on a swathe of Cambridge's greenbelt. I also have concerns about the lack of co-operation between competing transport projects in the area. In Queen Ediths, there's no clear plan for how the CSET busway will impact local bus services, particularly on Francis Crick Avenue. The same goes for Cambridge South Station.
I am campaigning for a more joined-up approach, something that is supported by the Campus and many of the companies that ustilise it.
So far, I have
- Met multiple times with the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
- Met with Roland Sinker, Chief Executive of Addenbrookes Hospital.
- Raised concerns with Ministers in the Dept of Health and the Dept of Leveling Up, Housing and Communities.
- Convened a meeting to discuss transport concerns and growth at the Biomedical Campus, with representatives from:
- The Combined Authority
- The Greater Cambridge Partnership
- Cambridgeshire County Council
- National Highways
- National Rail
- Mott McDonald
- Toured the site with senior Dept of Transport representatives and members of the East West Rail company
- Met with local representatives, including City Councillor Sam Davies
