Land North of Cherry Hinton

Planning Consultation

Proposals for a new neighbourhood north of Cherry Hinton, Cambridge, have been put forward by the local authorities for a 47-hectare piece of land.

Landowners Marshall Group Properties and Endurance Estates on behalf on the White Family are working in close consultation with Cambridge City Council, South Cambridgeshire District Council and the local community to bring plans forward.

The Land North of Cherry Hinton will be a vibrant, high-quality and distinctive extension to the existing settlement, reflecting and enhancing the special character of the surrounding area, whilst working in synergy with Cambridge as a whole.

This website is the place to find out more about the project as it progresses. Or if you want us to keep you informed then please use the contact details below.

The new community will include:

  • Up to 1,200 homes

  • A two-form entry primary school

  • A secondary school

  • A local centre and community hub

  • Open space

  • A spine road connecting Coldhams Lane with Cherry Hinton Road
