Cherry Hinton North was granted planning permission in December 2020 when Marshall Group (representing the owners of Cambridge City Airport) and Endurance Estates Strategic Land owned the land. Following the outline approval for 1,200 homes, a local centre and new school buildings, the site was bought by a joint venture between Bellway Homes and Latimer Developments in Spring 2021.
At present the site comprises open fields close to the runway of the Airport which itself is expected to be redeveloped in the long term. A public footpath that connects Teversham and Cherry Hinton also crosses the site and this connectivity will be preserved. There is a gas main through the site which will be redirected before construction can begin.
