Addenbrooke's Road/Cambridge Biomedical Campus Traffic Regulation Order (TRO)
updated 22 May 2017

Addenbrooke's Road provides road access from Trumpington to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (CBC) and Addenbrooke's Hospital, but
is not a through route. The use of the ANPR cameras was reintroduced on 22 May 2017. See the statement on the
CBC and Cambridgeshire
Constabulary websites.

The Trumpington Residents' Association has also issued a statement on the Addenbrooke's Road/Cambridge Biomedical Campus Traffic
Regulation Order:

1. Addenbrooke's Road was constructed to give access to Addenbrooke's Hospital and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and the Glebe
Farm and Clay Farm housing developments. Planning approval for the road was given on this basis, after recommendations in the Southern
Fringe Area Development Framework which was approved by the local councils in 2006 and supported by the TRA.
2. The roads within the Campus have been and have remained private roads, not for public use as through routes.
3. When Addenbrooke's Road opened in 2010, the County Council approved a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) allowing the Campus
authorities and the police to monitor vehicles leaving Addenbrooke's Road to enter the Campus site and to issue penalty notices to drivers
who used the Campus roads as a through route.
4. In late 2014, it was established that there were flaws in the wording of the original TRO and the police stopped enforcing it but the
Campus roads continued to have private status and should not have been used as a through route.
5. The County Council, Campus authorities and police have now established a new TRO and are re-imposing the controls on the use of the
private roads within the Campus by through traffic.
6. The TRA fully supported the original decision to limit the use of Addenbrooke's Road to being an access road to the Campus and the
housing developments and not part of a through route around the south of Cambridge. The TRA fully supports the re-imposition of controls
on the private roads within the Campus by through traffic.
7. The TRA realises that the consequence of the re-imposition of the TRO will be additional traffic and congestion in Trumpington and
additional journey lengths for some local residents. We will continue to press the councils, City Deal and Campus authorities for effective
action to improve this situation through better road management, bus and Busway services - including a local bus service within
Trumpington and to the Campus - and Park & Ride services.

No additional homes or 'sporting village' at Trumpington Meadows
updated 29 June 2017

Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council are developing new Local Plans. During the consultation on these plans,
there has been widespread opposition in Trumpington, the city and neighbouring villages to the potential development of 520 homes and a
sports complex in a Green Belt location off Hauxton Road, Trumpington (Trumpington Meadows). In the draft Cambridge Local Plan, the
City Council has concluded that it is "not satisfied that a compelling case exists for the need for a community stadium in a Green Belt
location" and "Opportunities have been taken at Trumpington to shape a new Green Belt edge, which enhances the landscape setting of the
city, as well as enhancing opportunities for recreational access" (
Draft Local Plan, paras 2.56 and 2.59). Local residents have welcomed
these conclusions against any further development in the local Green Belt. See the page about the
threatened additional developments.

Despite the protection of the area as part of the Green Belt and the omission of the idea from the draft Local Plans, Grosvenor pursued its
proposal for a sporting village in the Green Belt between Trumpington and Hauxton and submitted a planning application for the development
on 25 July 2016. After nearly a year of assessment, the planning application was withdrawn in June 2017, see
latest news from the District
Council. See also previous
statement from the District Council, the Council's planning system (search for application S/1925/16/OL) and the
Cambridge Community Sporting Company project website.

Education provision
updated 5 December 2016

Children's Centre at Fawcett School serves the Southern Fringe, as a base for services in Newnham, Hauxton and parts of the Shelfords
as well as Trumpington.

The County Council is supporting an extension to
Fawcett School, new primary schools at Trumpington Meadows and Clay Farm and a
new secondary school at Clay Farm. As part of the consultation process, it produced a
background document, with information about
existing educational provision, forecasts for future needs, details of the new educational facilities and the statutory process for establishing
these facilities.

The plans for
Trumpington Park Primary School (Clay Farm) were approved in September 2016. The school is under construction and
due to open in September 2017.

Trumpington Meadows Primary School opened in September 2013. The school is part of a federation with Fawcett Primary School.

and outdoor sports facilities for community use.

Marketing name of the Clay Farm and Glebe Farm developments
updated 29 November 2014

In October 2010,
Countryside Properties announced that it would use 'Great Kneighton' as the marketing name for Clay Farm and Glebe
Farm. The Residents' Association strongly disagreed with the decision on the marketing name, which is an inappropriate and historically
inaccurate name which detracts from the community's sense of place and belonging. The Association will continue to work with Councillors
and officers in Cambridge City Council to ensure that the development is integrated into the existing community of Trumpington and that the
area and facilities within the new developments are named appropriately.

The outline planning application for the Addenbrooke's 2020 Vision (06/0796/FUL) and the full application for the Medical Research Centre
(07/0651/FUL) were approved by the City Council Planning Committee on 7 November 2007. Work is currently underway on the

Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) is looking for volunteers to take on an important role in
helping shape its future
updated 28 February 2018

The Foundation Trust, which is accountable to its local communities for the services it provides, has just given official ‘notice of elections’
for its Council of Governors.
Governors, who often see the role as an opportunity to give back to their local hospitals, are elected from public, patient and staff
constituencies. This year there are eight vacancies from all three constituencies.
Deputy Lead Governor, David Dean, said part of the role involves attending meetings where Governors learn about the Trust’s strategy,
activities and response to issues. There are also opportunities to challenge and question the Board of Directors.
Those with more time can join in with activities such as patient experience meetings, ward inspections and discussions to help shape the long-
term strategy of the Trust, which runs Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie Maternity Hospitals.
Mr Dean, who was elected as a public governor in July 2017, said: “The foundation trust is accountable to its local communities for the
services they provide and a key piece of this accountability is through the Governors who are elected to represent their collective views.
“It is hugely rewarding to see close up the efforts and commitment of everyone in the Trust pushing to provide the kindest, safest and best
possible care for patients.  We all know there are huge challenges for our Trust – from population growth to nurse recruitment – but as a
Governor I can play a part in ensuring we get the best that is possible for our community in these tough times.”
Anyone over the age of 16, and from any walk of life can apply. For more information about becoming a governor contact the Trust
Membership Office on 01223 256256 or visit the election
website. Completed nomination forms must be returned by noon on Wednesday 28
March 2018.
Potential candidates are strongly advised to attend one of the two ‘Governor awareness sessions’ taking place at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
They are on Tuesday 20 March 13:30–15:00 and Thursday 22 March 17:30–19:00. Attendance at one of these is highly recommended and
can be booked via the above contact details.

Bus services in Trumpington
updated 4 February 2018

There is anger in Trumpington at Stagecoach's decision to cut bus services through Trumpington with effect from 23 July 2017. This
Citi 7 and services 26 and 27, none of which stop on Trumpington High Street between 9 am and 5 pm Monday-Saturday or at any
time on Sunday. The Trumpington Residents' Association has been campaigning against the changes and issued a
statement explaining our

On a more positive note, a new Stagecoach bus service, number
25, started on 7 January 2018. This provides links within Trumpington and
between Trumpington and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus/Addenbrooke's Hospital, including going along Hobson Avenue/Lime Avenue,
passing the Clay Farm Centre and Trumpington Community College. The route goes eastbound from the High Street (Anstey Way bus stop)
down Shelford Road, turn left on to Addenbooke’s Road, turn left along Hobson Avenue and Lime avenue through the Clay Farm
developments of Abode, Aura and Halo, turn right on to Long Road, to Addenbrooke’s bus station; from where it will do the westbound
route via Dame Mary Archer Way and Addenbrooke’s Road, along Hobson Avenue and Lime Avenue again, to Long Road and Trumpington
High Street and the Anstey Way bus stop again. This has been referred to as the “figure of eight” service.

The Residents' Association has been heavily involved in pressing for the introduction of this service.

There are copies of the Timetable, with a route map, on the bus.
