Trumpington Residents'
Association
Trumpington Village Sign unveiled June 2010, designed by Sheila Betts.
No additional development at Trumpington Meadows
updated 29 May 2014

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 450 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.

On 21 November 2013, the Mayor of Cambridge, Councillor Paul Saunders, presented awards to the Trumpington Residents' Association

naming of streets in the new housing developments (Clay Farm, Glebe Farm and Trumpington Meadows).

Education provision
updated 22 April 2013

The
Children's Centre at Fawcett School serves the Southern Fringe, as a base for services in Newnham, Hauxton and parts of the
Shelfords as well as Trumpington.

The County Council is planning an extension to Fawcett School, new primary schools at Trumpington Meadows and Clay Farm and a new
secondary school at Clay Farm. As part of the consultation process, it produced a
background document, with information about existing
educational provision, forecasts for future needs, details of the new educational facilities, the statutory process for establishing these
facilities and a comments sheet.

Trumpington Meadows Primary School opened in September 2013. The school is part of a federation with Fawcett Primary School.

The City of Cambridge Education Foundation (currently responsible for Parkside and Coleridge) is developing the design for the new
Trumpington Secondary School to be located near the Community Centre on Clay Farm. The planning application for this school was
approved on 17 April 2013.

Clay Farm and Glebe Farm developments
updated 16 October 2010

In October 2010, Cambridgeshire Horizons awarded £8 million to enable construction work to get underway on the Clay Farm and Glebe
Farm developments. The developer -
Countryside Properties - announced that it would use 'Great Kneighton' as the marketing name for
Clay Farm and Glebe Farm, reported in the
Cambridge News on 7 October 2010.

The Residents' Association welcomed the investment but 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's
response was reported in the
Cambridge News on 11 October 2010. The Association will continue to work with Local and Executive
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.

Skanska is building two housing areas: south of Addenbrooke's Road (Seven Acres) starting early 2012 and south of Long Road.

The outline planning application for Trumpington Meadows was approved at the Joint Development Control Committee on 20 February
2008. Permission to proceed with the outline application was given in October 2009, after the S106 agreement was completed. Staff from
Grosvenor and USS gave a presentation about the plans to the Association in March 2010. Barratt's has been appointed as the builder for
the first phase, the village quarter and tree clearance has been carried out for the northern access road off Hauxton Road. Work is also
underway on the development of the country park along the river. The landscaping of the park was approved by the Joint Development
Control Committee on 2 November, with more research into the control of noise. The City Council and
District Council (search for
S/1113/10 for country park) have information about the application on their Web sites and a full set of documents has been given to the
Residents' Association.

There was a public art walk around the development and the country park on 9 October 2011,

phasing. The Council received amendments to these plans on 8 March 2010 (copy also held) and the Association has made a further
