Wing Masterplan, Cambridge
2012 - current
- Site area 64
PTE has been commissioned by the Marshall Group to create a masterplan for this 180 acre site which will become a new urban quarter and eastern expansion to Cambridge. Our aim is to create a truly sustainable community that will not only provide between 1200 and 2000 new homes, but a new primary school, local shops, employment space, and a variety of open spaces. The development will also benefit from the employment opportunities provided by nearby Marshalls businesses, including Cambridge Airport.
We have been carrying out intensive stakeholder consultation from very early on in the process. This began with a three-day series of Community Planning Workshops to share information and give people the opportunity to contribute towards the final proposals.
The workshops attracted over 1,000 people, including potential residents, Marshalls employees and neighbouring residents, together with local authority members and other community leaders.
We went on to develop a detailed brief and masterplan framework in line with the feedback from these sessions. Our proposals were presented at a public exhibition where we invited further feedback from stakeholders and the local community.
