U+I and TOWN, working with Cambridge City Council
and Anglian Water, are developing a vision for
a new urban quarter in Cambridge.
At the heart of the planned new district of North East Cambridge, the Core Site development will include approximately 5,600 homes, shops, workplaces, education, community and leisure facilities, and open spaces.
We are right at the start of our journey and
we hope you will help us shape the plans.
Located between Cambridge North railway station and Cambridge Science Park, the Core Site is a 48 hectare brownfield site, owned by Anglian Water and Cambridge City Council. It is currently home to the Cambridge Waste Water Treatment Plant and the adjacent golf driving range.
The site is at the heart of the planned new district of North East Cambridge, that will deliver approximately 8,000 homes, with new workspaces and community facilities, which will be enabled by the proposed relocation of the Waste Water Treatment Plant.
With excellent public transport connections, and a wide range of employment opportunities nearby, the Core Site is the last, large-scale, undeveloped, brownfield regeneration opportunity in Cambridge.
Our vision is for a new urban quarter that will support the health, happiness and wellbeing of local people, play an integral role in the future of Cambridge, and be an exemplar for sustainable 21st century development.
Master developers U+I and TOWN are working in partnership with Anglian Water and Cambridge City Council.
We are experienced in creating communities that have character – and places that people are passionate about.
We are committed to sustainable regeneration, high-quality design, and wide-ranging community engagement.
As master developers, we are responsible for creating the vision for the Core Site, developing proposals informed by engagement with the local community and seeking planning permission. Once planning permission is obtained, we will deliver key infrastructure and oversee the delivery of the new buildings on the site.
At U+I 'thoughtful regeneration' is in our DNA. We exist to make the lives of people better and to unlock value for all. Imaginative, meaningful mixed-use places create proud, thriving communities. They are good for people and society, good for the economy and good for our business.
TOWN’s mission is to build good places for better lives. This means delivering homes, streets and neighbourhoods that improve people’s quality of life, enable more sustainable ways of living, and improve the wider places they’re part of.
TOWN’s award-winning first built project, Marmalade Lane, is nearby in Orchard Park, Cambridge and is the home of Cambridge’s first cohousing community.
We want everyone with an interest in the area –
including local people, businesses and organisations,
as well as local political and community representatives
– to help shape the proposals for the Core Site.
We are starting early and taking the time to make sure
we get our proposals right, with our target date for
submitting a planning application in 2024. Over the
next two years there will be many different opportunities
for the local community to help us develop our ideas and to
help shape our proposals.
