    The Food, Farming and Countryside commission is 'touring' the countryside to gather views about land in Cambs and Peterborough:

    Listening Tour: Your Views on Land in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

    We ask a lot of land. We need it to grow food, restore biodiversity and nature, decarbonise the
    economy and adapt to climate change – while also providing space for new homes, access to nature
    for leisure and wellbeing and the infrastructure for business, energy and transport. In England, there
    is currently no coordinated way of balancing all of these pressures.
    Planners are often faced with agreeing the ‘least-worst’ development proposals. Local people have
    little say when their valued open countryside, green spaces, or even allotments are lost to other
    uses. We want to test ideas for a more strategic and effective approach that will support action to
    deliver net zero, nature recovery, clean air and water, economic development, and food production.
    A land use framework will also help individual landowners and farmers make long term plans as they
    face a raft of new support mechanisms; to help assess what their land is best used for in the context
    of the wider landscape.
    We want to hear from people about the places where they live and work and what they value most
    there. We want to hear people’s hopes, fears and aspirations for their local environment and what
    they would like to improve. We’re interested in towns, villages, farms, landscapes and wildlife, food,
    roads, rivers, transport, heritage and employment. What changes are coming and how can they best
    be addressed? How can local people be involved in defining what Cambridgeshire is like in 20 years’
    We hope the meeting will be interesting and lively, and that you share your views. We will include a
    short introduction to the topic about how places have been changing over time and the competing
    pressures on land to open up the discussion.
    These meetings will form part of a wider “tour” gathering views right across Cambridgeshire. They
    will all contribute to a Land Use Framework being developed by people and organisations right across
    Cambridgeshire. For more information:
