Trio of architects scoops Cambridgeshire housing

  • Comment

Fletcher Priest, Mole Architects and John Thompson and Partners have been appointed to work on a huge housing scheme on Ministry of Defence (MOD) land in Cambridgeshire

The residential development will transform 2.9million m² of land which was previously RAF barracks.

Used by the military for more than 70 years, the site is now being sold as part of the MOD’s estate disposal programme.

An initial masterplan for the site, drawn up by Fletcher Priest, includes 6,500 homes.

Nigel Hugill, chairman of the site’s developer Urban and Civic, said: ‘Waterbeach represents properly joined-up national thinking. This involves public brownfield land being released by a major Government ministry for value enhancing development that anticipates and facilitates change in one of the most innovative and creative locations in the UK, whilst returning substantial proceeds to the taxpayer in the process.’

An outline planning application is expected to be submitted within the next two years.
