Cambridge North supports a lower carbon future
The Cambridge North team, working with local government, aims to help Cambridge prepare for a more sustainable future. Cambridge North’s proximity to excellent public transport options, including the railway station and guided busway, and pedestrian and cycles routes will make Cambridge North an exemplar of sustainable development in the Greater Cambridge area helping the region move toward a lower reliance on cars helping to reduce congestion and improve air quality.
The development will support the use of electric vehicles by providing electric car charging points.
A NEIGHBOURHOOD WITH CYCLING AT ITS HEART
A number of new cycle links to connect into the extensive cycle network in the wider area have been proposed as part of the Greater Cambridge Partnership. The new station includes parking for 1,000 bicycles and the homes and other buildings at Cambridge North will make provision for further bicycle parking.
BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE
All buildings on the site will support a low carbon future by locking energy efficiency into the design of building form and envelope to minimise energy demand, utilising the most efficient building services systems, making the most of on-site renewable energy, and investigating validated offset schemes.
