Next phases of Darwin Green unveiled
The Darwin Green project team have unveiled the first glimpse of their emerging proposals to deliver approximately 1,000 new homes, a country park, a secondary school and land reserved for a primary school for phases two and three.
The proposal is being developed as part of a sustainable urban housing-led extension of Cambridge, as set out in the South Cambridgeshire District Council Local Plan.
Nearly 200 residents attended a public exhibition on September 18 to view the emerging proposals and offer their feedback.
Of those who did, 45 per cent said the provision for green space and the new country park was the most important aspect of the proposed new development.
The project team will now review the feedback to help evolve the scheme, which is located on Huntingdon Road, Cambridge, and which is due to be submitted in early 2020.
The consultation event materials can be viewed online at darwingreen-consultation.co.uk, or requested by phoning 0800 1488911.
The website contains updates to both phases one, two and three, and further comments can be submitted there.
A spokesperson for the Darwin Green project team said: “We are delighted with the feedback and comments that were received from the exhibition.
“The outline application will establish the principles of development which will allow a new community to be delivered as part of the urban expansion of Cambridge.
"As such, many benefits will be delivered as part of the proposals to enable both existing and new residents to enjoy the facilities.
“These will include a country park, a secondary school, land reserved for a primary school, and a community centre.”
