Project Information
Project description:

The University of Cambridge is proposing a new sustainable urban extension to the north west of Cambridge through provision of living and research accommodation, public amenities and open space.

Phase one of the development will comprise around 530 homes for University staff, some 426 homes for sale and accommodation for 300 students. As well as, the local centre, including a community centre, primary school, nursery, GP surgery, senior care home, supermarket and shops, hotel and police office along with much of the public open space. 

The University is currently seeking residential and commercial development partners for the different elements of phase one, which is subject to approval from the University’s Regent House in early 2013. 

It is hoped that phase one will start in early 2013 and be completed by mid-2015.
