This is one of a series of pages about Clay Farm.

Countryside is developing the north eastern end of the Clay Farm development, south from Long Road either side of the spine road, with
Hobson's Brook to the east. Countryside is marketing this as the
Aura Development, with 229 homes. The Reserved Matters application
was approved in February 2013 (see the City Council
planning page and plan of Clay Farm). The area was part of the Cambridge Green
Belt until 2006 and farmland until 2007. There was an extensive archaeological excavation in the area in 2011-12, see
report and site visit.
