Cambridge East (Wing)

In 2008 South Cambridgeshire District Council and the City Council adopted the Cambridge East Area Action Plan. This plan identifies the site for “a sustainable new urban quarter of approximately 10,000 to 12,000 dwellings”, the delivery of which is based on the relocation of Cambridge airport.


Marshall has signalled its intention not to move the airport in the foreseeable future. Therefore, a smaller site to the north of Newmarket Road is being put forward for development. The 64.8 hectare site falls within the parish of Fen Ditton and is proposed to accommodate up to 1,300 new homes, a primary school, food store and all the associated infrastructure, services and facilities to serve the new community. The site will still house some of the existing car showrooms, but they will accommodate a reduced site.  


The first Cambridge East Community Forum was held on 10th December and further meetings will be held in the new year. An outline planning application was submitted on18th December and will be the subject of consultation in early 2014. 


The consultation on the planning application will run from 3rd January 2014 to 14th February 2014. Comments can be made in writing, to South Cambridgeshire Hall, Cambourne Business Park, Cambourne, Cambridge, CB23 6EA or by email to Ed Durrant at or online at using the following planning reference S/2682/13*.


For any further information on the Wing development, or the Cambridge East Community Forum, please contact Ed Durrant at or on 01954 713266.
