This is one of a series of pages about the Trumpington Meadows development.
The outline planning application by Grosvenor for the Trumpington Meadows development was approved by the Joint Development Control
Committee for the Cambridge Fringes on 20 February 2008. Permission to proceed with the outline application was given in October 2009,
after the S106 agreement was completed. The Residents' Association made detailed responses to the planning application at each stage in the
The project is complicated by the area being administered by both Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council, with
the majority of the site in South Cambridgeshire (Haslingfield parish). The Residents' Association and others have argued that it would be
better to transfer the area to the north east of the M11 into the City, so that all of the built up area was part of Trumpington, but this has not
been implemented. The whole area was historically in Trumpington parish.
The approved plan includes 1200 dwellings on 30 hectares, a
local centre, a primary school and community centre and a 60
hectare park. The housing and school form a C-shape to the
north, west and south of the Trumpington Park & Ride site.
There will be 40% of affordable homes across the site. There
will be a spine road with two access points on Hauxton Road,
one near Waitrose and one opposite Addenbrooke's Road. When
taken together with the development on Glebe Farm, immediately
to the east of Trumpington Meadows, these changes are creating
a new distinctive edge to Cambridge.
The area to the west and south west of the housing development
near the River Cam is a country park managed by the Wildlife
Trust. This is adjacent to Byron's Pool along the north western
part of the site. The area to the south of the housing
development alongside Hauxton Road has been retained as
farmland. The park and farmland extend to the south west of the
M11, crossed by a footpath and cycle track from Hauxton to

The overall Trumpington Meadows site is 154 hectares.
The River Cam marks its western border; Trumpington
Church and Anstey Hall are to the north east; and
Hauxton Road to the south east, including the
Trumpington Park & Ride site. The area extends south
west of the M11, towards Hauxton.
The development is being constructed by Barratt Homes.
