Cambridge Approaches: Support A Judicial Review

Cambridge Approaches (a volunteer action group) along with supporting parish councils and residents are campaigning for a full and fair consultation on an alternative northern approach into Cambridge relating to the proposed East West Rail route Option E. 

One way to achieve this objective is through a judicial review.  We have taken legal advice on this and are now fundraising in order to be in a position to pay for it.

We and many Cambridgeshire residents believe that a northern approach needs to be evaluated and consulted upon to the same extent as a southern approach. This means taking into consideration the environmental effects, costs, suitability, residential impact and that it should support the housing plan within the area connecting the new growing settlements of Cambourne and Northstowe to Cambridge.

This is a 100 year nationally significant infrastructure project paid for by taxpayers’ and as such it needs to be in the right place and be the best use of taxpayers’ money. 

We are now in the process of raising funds to cover the costs of our campaign and to be able to fund our legal challenge through Leigh Day. 

For donations over £250 please ‘contact us’ via email on our website  and we will send you more information about doing that

More detailed information can be found on the Cambridge Approaches website  including the potential freight element and environmental concerns as documented by BCN Wildlife Trust .

Please also support the petition by CamBedRailRoad to the Department for Transport calling for a northern route to be fairly evaluated at the same time and to the same degree as alternative routes proposed by East West Rail Company. To do this simply search CamBedRailRoad on this link 

We support the route proposed by CamBedRailRoad here .

Thank you for your support
