Location: This will cover the site that stretches from Histon Road and the old Cambridge Road across the fields to Huntingdon Road.

Number of dwellings: (David Wilson Estates) for 1780 dwellings, primary school, community facilities, associated infrastructure (roads and cycleways.) A park is proposed for the centre of the development.

Status: Outline planning application to be decided. There is a separate application to South Cambridgeshire District Council for an access road from the site to Histon Road.

Issues: junctions at Histon and Huntingdon Road are unfriendly to cyclists, forcing cyclists onto the pavement and there is no provision of on road facilities on Huntingdon Road or the access road. 40 mph speed limit proposed on King’s Hedges Road going against local govt and nation govt advice.
