Consultation on First Phase of delivery

Waterbeach barracks and airfield is a unique place, nestled in a beautiful and established landscape, connected to a popular and dynamic village. Our vision is to support the next evolution of the site, building on centuries of prior settlement in the area: growing along the Causeway route, existing village to the re-energised barracks district through its unique waterfront and onwards towards Denny Abbey.

Now that the Outline Application and full planning framework is agreed, the Urban&Civic team are able to share the evolving detail which will make up the application for the first phase of delivery. This will include:

  • The first Primary School
  • 1600 homes
  • The first phase of health provision and library provision – complementing services in the village
  • Shops, café and amenities around the lake and within a local centre to support the first homes
  • 25 play areas
  • 4 community orchards, allotments and a number of areas for “edible streets”
  • Sports pitches, including 2 football and a rugby pitch

Two events are planned at the Community Rooms at Waterbeach Barracks on 16 October 15.00 — 20.00 and 19 October 10.00 — 15.00, where you will be able to hear more about the plans for delivery. A link to our consultation website will also be live on this website from 16th October for those who are unable to make either event, or prefer to feedback online after attending.
