In our response to the government's consultation on the Draft National Planning Policy Framework we have said that:

Cambridge is a city of international significance. CambridgePPF cannot emphasise too highly that the quality of Cambridge as a place has to be sustained, and even enhanced, through sound and robust planning processes if the area is to continue to perform strongly in economic terms. Hasty and poor-quality development, not balanced with infrastructure investment and with environmental considerations, will kill the goose that has hitherto laid the golden eggs. Our full response is here.
