What is happening at the Core Site?

U+I (part of Landsec) and TOWN, are developing a vision for a new urban quarter in Cambridge, on land owned by Cambridge City Council and Anglian Water. As the master developers U+I and TOWN are responsible for creating the vision for what is currently called the Core Site.

At the heart of the planned new district of North East Cambridge covered by the local Area Action Plan for North East Cambridge, the Core Site development will include approximately 5,600 homes, shops, workplaces, education, community and leisure facilities, and open spaces.

The vision is for a new urban quarter supporting the health, happiness, and wellbeing of local people, playing an integral role in the future of Cambridge, and being an exemplar for sustainable 21st century development.

U+I and TOWN will develop proposals for the site, informed by engagement with the local community, and are responsible for securing planning permission for the project.

The project team has been engaging with local organisations and members of the local community to help shape the proposals - a
report on our engagement from 2021 and 2022 is available here. Engagement with these groups will continue into 2023.

The planning application will be submitted in 2024 and once planning permission is obtained, U+I will deliver key infrastructure and oversee the delivery of the new buildings on the site, which will likely be delivered by other developers.
