Sustainability

It is important that the new village has its own distinct character and identity. Our masterplan provides a range of essential services to help create a sustainable new community and a village that people can really belong to.

The site will have dedicated landscaped green spaces and other types of open space.

This will prevent coalescence with Highfields Caldecote to the east, Cambourne to the west, and Bourn to the south, ensuring that each settlement maintains its own character and identity. New woodlands, meadows and wetlands will enhance bio-diversity and make sure that the new village is physically self-contained and does not merge with other settlements.

The scheme will look to incorporate sustainability in the housing design and renewable technologies.

There will be good, pedestrian, cycle and public transport connectivity with Cambridge and the surrounding villages.
