  • Update 20th March 2023
    Necessary gas works will be taking place on the Springstead Village site from the 20 March through to the 10 April. Cadent will be undertaking venting work from the old and no longer required mains gas pipeline which runs through the site. The project team would like to reassure residents that the routine work will be undertaken with highly skilled and qualified personnel from Cadent overseeing the operation. The operation will take place three times over the three-week period, lasting approximately 15 minutes on each occasion. It is anticipated that the majority of local residents will not be disturbed as the works take place, however during the 15-inute period, you may hear or smell a small amount of gas which is a perfectly accepted consequence of the works. If you have questions or concerns you would like to raise, please feel free to get in touch.

  • Update 02 February 2023
    Our team will shortly be undertaking a small amount of vegetation clearance along Teversham Drift and Coldhams Lane which will include removal of the hedgerow along the boundary of the site. The removal of the hedgerow on Teversham Drift is required to facilitate the foul drainage connection as approved in the development plans. We have positioned the new footway and cycle path through the development at the same position which will minimise the overall amount of vegetation clearance required. The removal of the hedgerow along Coldhams Lane is required to facilitate the construction of the junction at the site entrance as approved in the development plans. Importantly, we are ensuring that the removal of the hedgerow will be completed prior to the bird nesting season in order to protect local wildlife. New landscaping and vegetation planting will be delivered as the project is built out in accordance with the approved development plan.
  • Update 12 December 2022
    The reserved matters application for 351 homes at Springstead Village has now been validated by the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service, with the reference number 22/05037/REM. We have worked hard to get the project to this point, and have been delighted with the local engagement and consultation which has helped inform our design plans. We firmly believe that Springstead Village will contribute positively to Cherry Hinton and the local area and look forward to working with the local planning authority, statutory consultees and local community going forward as we continue to progress the project. In addition, we are pleased to confirm that the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service has granted permission for nine residential units on the site which will form the sales and marketing suites for the wider Springstead Village development as it is built out (reference number: 22/04037/REM).
  • Update 21 October 2022
    The project team have been working with local historians and other experts to uncover the history of the site. Through this work, we have decided to name the development Springstead Village. One of the interesting revelations which was highlighted through this process was that the area was formerly home to a water spring and the area of Cherry Hinton was responsible for a significant proportion of the water supply to Cambridge. We are pleased to be celebrating this local connection through this fitting name for the development site.
