Developers and landowners have suggested more than 40 new sites to be considered for new housing or commercial developments - and we have mapped them so you can see them all.

They put them forward during the consultation on the first proposals for the Greater Cambridge Local Plan, which will guide development in Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire for 20 years.

A call for sites to inform the Greater Cambridge Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) and the Local Plan was held prior to the consultation, which launched in December last year. In response, site promoters put forward 41 new sites, and one additional green site, and also submitted new information in relation to 171 previously submitted site proposals.

The information will now be reviewed and assessed by Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council, informing the next stage of Local Plan consultation. The councils - Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council - are not seeking comments on these new and amended sites at this stage.

Many of the promoters point out that the first proposals plan is heavily reliant on the delivery of a handful of strategic developments, particularly large and complex sites – and that new sites that could create a pipeline of smaller developments.

However, as they stand, none of the new sites has any planning status.
