Our phase three consultation for the Cambridge Waste Water Treatment Plant Relocation project went live on February 24 2022 and closed at 11:59pm on 27 April 2022. We wanted to hear your views on the detailed design proposals for the new facility, including our comprehensive mitigation measures (i.e. how we’ll minimise the impact of the facility) and preliminary environmental information.

For the phase three consultation we also published our Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR), which has been informed by the environmental studies and assessments we have carried out to date. The PEIR is designed to help you understand the likely environmental effects of the project and to help inform your phase three consultation responses at the pre-application stage. Also available are our draft management plans which show how we will minimise impacts on the local community and environment, and our draft Development Consent Order (DCO), which outlines the powers we will be seeking to construct and operate the new facility. All documents are available on the document library.

Our phase three community consultation leaflet presents and summarises our updated proposals following two earlier phases of consultation. Thank you to all who have responded so far to the three rounds of consultation. We will continue to carefully consider the feedback we have received, to further help shape our more detailed design proposals.

Next steps

Following the end of our phase three consultation on 27 April, we will take the time to carefully consider all feedback received as we continue to develop our final design for the new facility. We will also develop a full Environmental Statement, showing how we will mitigate any potential impacts on the local community and environment.

In autumn 2022 we will be submitting our Development Consent Order (DCO) application, including our Environmental Statement to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS). Our application will also include our full Consultation Report, setting out how we have considered the feedback received through all of our phases of consultation.
