The site and local context

Cambridge North is one of the best located areas in the city, with huge potential to deliver new jobs and homes, whilst also reducing our dependency on cars. There are excellent public transport options, including the railway station and Guided Busway, Chisholm Trail, Milton Park and Ride and planned Waterbeach Greenway and St Ives Greenway.

The plan to the right shows how we propose to bring forward the 17-hectare site across multiple phases. In developing our proposals, we are considering the whole site to ensure future phases will fully integrate and reflect the same level of quality and character once the early phases are developed.

In the future, Cambridge North will be an exciting and inclusive place with new homes, workspaces, shops, caf├ęs, restaurants, and open spaces.

North East Cambridge Context

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.

Both Councils are jointly preparing an Area Action Plan (AAP) for the North East Cambridge area. The AAP will help guide all development across 182 hectares of brownfield land. We have been actively participating in workshops with the County and District Councils, neighbouring landowners, and other stakeholders over the past few years to input into AAP policies.
