The North East Cambridge area is undergoing a period of transformation, with the wider area identified as a new low-carbon city district by Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council. Cambridge North is a catalyst for the planned future transformation of the wider area.

The phased mixed-use regeneration scheme at Cambridge North is taking place on publicly owned derelict former railway sidings land creating an open, accessible and vibrant new urban district within the city. In the future, Cambridge North will be an exciting and inclusive place with new homes, workspaces, shops, cafés, restaurants, and open spaces.
