The story so far
In 2011 we began discussions with the community and partners to bring forward much needed homes, making use of a brownfield site. This would form a third sustainable urban extension alongside Brampton and Godmanchester to support the growth of Huntingdon and the wider District, and to provide a new business area for the county. You helped us define some key parameters, principles and pledges.
A focus on transformational employment and enterprise.
Linking landscapes and people.
Using resources wisely – a low carbon approach.
Creating a sense of place.
280,000 sq m of commercial space.
283 hectares of green space.
Investment in two transport hubs and connections to public transport, cycle and road network.
Community facilities including three primary and one secondary school; a health centre; and community and sports facilities.
Our development pledges
Plant over half a million new trees across the site starting winter 2011-12.
Bring forward an enabling application during 2011 to start the Enterprise Zone.
Maximise the jobs on site for local people, working with Job Centre Plus and Huntingdon Regional College.
Create a Southern Gateway to connect to Huntingdon Town Centre.
Actively participate in the regeneration of Huntingdon town centre.
Give long term legal protection to the major parks and public spaces, including a permanent green shield for the Stukeleys.
No vehicular connections to Owl End and Green End (Great Stukeley) and Clay Lane (Abbots Ripton).
Record and publish the Social History of the airfield and incorporate physical elements of its past.
Provide long term facilities for local sports teams and clubs.
This is not the end of the consultation process.
