No additional homes or 'sporting village' at Trumpington Meadows
updated 16 August 2016

Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council are developing new Local Plans. During the consultation on these plans,
there has been widespread opposition in Trumpington, the city and neighbouring villages to the potential development of 520 homes and a
sports complex in a Green Belt location off Hauxton Road, Trumpington (Trumpington Meadows). In the draft Cambridge Local Plan, the
City Council has concluded that it is "not satisfied that a compelling case exists for the need for a community stadium in a Green Belt
location" and "Opportunities have been taken at Trumpington to shape a new Green Belt edge, which enhances the landscape setting of the
city, as well as enhancing opportunities for recreational access" (
Draft Local Plan, paras 2.56 and 2.59). Local residents have welcomed
these conclusions against any further development in the local Green Belt. See the page about the
threatened additional developments.

Despite the protection of the area as part of the Green Belt and the omission of the idea from the draft Local Plans, Grosvenor is pursuing its
proposal for a sporting village in the Green Belt between Trumpington and Hauxton and submitted a planning application for the development
on 25 July 2016. See a
statement from the District Council, the Council's planning system (search for application S/1925/16/OL) and the
Cambridge Community Sporting Company project website.

Fawcett School, new primary schools at Trumpington Meadows and Clay Farm and a

background document, with information about
existing educational provision, forecasts for future needs, details of the new educational facilities and the statutory process for establishing
these facilities.

Marketing name of the Clay Farm and Glebe Farm developments
updated 29 November 2014

In October 2010,
Countryside Properties announced that it would use 'Great Kneighton' as the marketing name for Clay Farm and Glebe
Farm. The Residents' Association strongly disagreed with the decision on the marketing name, which is an inappropriate and historically
inaccurate name which detracts from the community's sense of place and belonging. The Association will continue to work with Councillors
and officers in Cambridge City Council to ensure that the development is integrated into the existing community of Trumpington and that the
area and facilities within the new developments are named appropriately.
