Over 1,000 new homes for Cambridge

Plans for the development of 1,200 homes on the southern fringe of Cambridge have been given the green light by council.

The Joint Development Control Committee for the Cambridge Fringes granted outline planning permission for Trumpington Meadows, a project which will feature a new primary school, local shops and a 60-hectare country park.

The development – which will include 40 per cent affordable housing – is the first of four proposed housing estates for the southern fringe of Cambridge to be considered by the new committee.

A total of 4,000 new homes are currently planned for the whole of the southern fringe.

The Cambridge sub-region has been set a government target of delivering 47,500 new homes and £2.2 billion of support infrastructure by 2016.
