Southern Fringe

Overview / latest news

More information will be online shortly.

The Southern Fringe is the collective description for a set of developments to the south of Cambridge:

Location: Included within this area are Addenbrooke’s, Clay Farm, Trumpington Meadows, Bell School and Glebe Farm.

Number of dwellings: In total 4,000 homes are planned, with community facilities such as a primary school, a secondary school, a 60 hectare country park, health centre and local shops. Application submitted by Trumpington Meadows Land Company Ltd.

Status: The Trumpington Meadows development has been granted outline planning permission by a group called the Joint Development Control Committee for the Cambridge Fringes. (Fairly trips off the tongue.) This is made up of councillors from the County, South Cambridgeshire and City councils.

Issues: Shared use paths and permeability.
