Keeping Cambridge Special

How do we manage growing the city of Cambridge whilst preserving its history and culture in these fast-moving times?

Following the success of the 2030 Vision Workshops in 2009, at the end of 2016 organisations from across Cambridgeshire met at a Keeping Cambridge Special event organised by the Cambridge PPF ‘Heritage Watch’ committee. The meeting brought a lively mixture of perspectives to challenge influential figures in the cities development.

In summary, a video was published with comments from these inspiring and enlightening talks. The next stage is to capture and forcefully promote the best ideas to the decision-makers in future forums.

Emma Fletcher, Managing Director of SmithsonHill, represented a discussion stream on new developments in the area during the workshop. Along with the members of the City Council, property developers and local education bodies, Emma presented prominent talking points within the video (at approximately 15:10).
