Formation nets planning for homes on Cambridge City FC ground

  • Comment

New images have been released of a recently-approved housing development on the former ground of Cambridge City FC

Cambridge City Council approved the plans for 106 new homes on the former Pro-Edge Stadium site in the city centre late last year.

The scheme, drawn up by Formation Architects, working for house builder Crest Nicholson, replace an existing approval for a scheme for 138 homes drawn up by Cambridge-based Camal Architects, which were approved last year.

Tim Quick, director
at Formation Architects, said: ‘The standard of design required by Cambridge planners is very high and we have attempted to produce a scheme that is modern but fits in with the city’s context.’

A report by council planners said: ‘The proposed scheme delivers a reduced number of dwellings but improves dwelling mix and allows for an improved layout.’

The scheme features 12 four-bedroom homes, 24 three-bedroom units, 59 two-bedroom homes and nine one-bedroom flats.

The developer will be required to provide 40% of the new homes as affordable.

Quick said that the existing structures on the site have been demolished and that Crest Nicholson would start construction work imminently.

The housebuilder has pledged to fund community sports facilities through the section 106 agreement, including a new pavilion at Chesterton Community College playing fields.
It will also retain an artist appointed under the previous scheme, who will create artwork commemorating the football club, which is still looking for a permanent home.
