VeloCity wins ideas East-West competition


DECEMBER 2017

A team of architects, planners and engineers has won a contest seeking ideas (see background) for how the UK government could instigate growth in the Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford corridor, with plans to revitalise six villages by adding housing, and a network of cycling and pedestrian routes.

The "all-women team" comprises Jennifer Ross of Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design (site), Sarah Featherstone of Featherstone Young (site), Kay Hughes from Khaa (site), Petra Marko of Marko and Placemakers (site), Annalie Riches of Mikhail Riches (site) and Judith Sykes of Expedition Engineering (site).

Their proposal focuses on developing six villages to the southeast of a new railway station on the route between Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford. The idea is that the plans could be repeated in other locations across the arc.

Sarah Featherstone of Featherstone Young:

"Our re-imagination of the 21st century village will provide new homes and working environments, whilst retaining the strong character and identity of existing Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford corridors,"

The unveiling of the winning proposal follows the release of the government's Autumn Budget, which details plans to develop the area. Read more here
