Our vision

Having put the Cambridge Airport land forward for inclusion in the Greater Cambridgeshire local plan we want to work alongside the people of Cambridge to create an extraordinary new place providing world-class education, employment and housing opportunities.

Cambridge East will set the new global standard for sustainability and create a complementary cultural hub to serve the City of Cambridge for generations to come.

We will consult extensively with the local community to ensure that Cambridge East is co-created by the people of Cambridge for the people of Cambridge, but are excited to share our initial vision for some of the things we could achieve together as we build and extraordinary future for our great city.
