Ely prepares masterplan

A masterplan for Ely aiming to ensure that homes are matched by infrastructure is being prepared, it was announced this week.

URBED and transport planning and engineering firm Gifford will work on a draft plan for East Cambridgeshire District Council to be finalised by the end of the year. A public consultation is likely to take place at the beginning of next year.

Council strategic development committee chairman Peter Moakes explained: "Growth can get out of hand and be unco-ordinated, eventually blighting the city. The question is how we can effectively manage this growth. We are hoping that this masterplan will help steer us towards the answer."
