No additional homes or 'sporting village' at Trumpington Meadows
updated 20 May 2015

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 500 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

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. There was an exhibition about their proposals at
Trumpington Meadows Primary School on 18 May 2015, see the Grosvenor
project website.

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

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.
