Planning permission for a £1 billion development by the University of Cambridge has been granted.
Plans for the site include 1,500 homes for university employees, accommodation for 2,000 students, 100,000m sq of research facilities, as well as 1,500 homes for sale.
Set over a 150-hectare site in north-west Cambridge, about one-third of the development will be given over to sports, informal recreation and ecological use, the university said.
The main open space on the site will be almost as large as Parker’s Piece, a park in the centre of Cambridge.
Project director Roger Taylor said that it was “very important that our development is integrated into the existing community and brings positive benefits to local people”.
