A New Town

It is quite amazing and exciting to see that a master plan together with the first phase scheme for a large new town planned for Northstowe in North West of Cambridge has been submitted to South Cambridgeshire District Council. The first phase will include 1,500 new homes together with infrastructure and other facilities although the master plan includes a total of 10,000 new homes together with a town centre, employment areas, school and community facilities.
The site is to be located on the former RAF Oakington Barracks and includes surrounding land amounting to about 480 hectares. It is believed to be the largest new settlement in England since Milton Keynes. It will no doubt contribute to the local housing need and provide much welcome employment for the construction industry.
