News Council extends Cumulative Impact Areas

Following Full Council approval of an updated cumulative impact assessment, impact areas have been extended

Following Full Council approval of an updated Statement of Licensing Policy and Cumulative Impact Assessment, Cambridge City Council has made changes to its Cumulative Impact Policy which extend impact areas across the city. These changes are now in effect. 

Along with the current City Centre and Leisure Park Cumulative Impact areas in place, which are effectively retained, following evidence provided by the Cambridgeshire Constabulary additional Cumulative Impact areas have has been added for the areas of:

  • Chesterton Road, Milton Road and Mitcham’s Corner. The area runs along Chesterton Road from Croft Holme Lane to Ferry Path; Victoria Avenue from the River Cam to Chesterton Road; and Milton Road around Mitcham’s Corner and up to Springfield Terrace.
  • The entire length of Mill Road, excluding Brookfields.
  • Both sides of the section of Hills Road running from the city to Purbeck Road.

As stated in the Council’s Cumulative Impact Assessment, the effect of this policy “is to create a presumption that applications for the grant of a premises licence or club premises certificate or variations to existing licenses or certificates, within the cumulative impact area, will be refused if relevant representations are received.”
