Comment on Plans for New Village at Bourn Airfield


SEPTEMBER 2018

Plans for a new village on Bourn Airfield have been submitted to South Cambridgeshire District Council.

The outline planning application from developer Countryside proposes the creation of a new community of up to 3,500 homes on the former World War Two airfield. The old airfield, including runways, sits between Cambourne and Caldecote and covers a total of 210 hectares.

A new village at Bourn is part of the emerging South Cambridgeshire Local Plan, which was found sound by Government Inspectors at the start of this month. The site at Bourn is seen by the Council as an area where new homes and jobs can be created to support the District’s growth.

The proposals from Countryside include:

  • A new village of 3,500 homes
  • A village centre made up of shops, restaurants, services and leisure opportunities
  • Two primary schools, a secondary school and nursery provision
  • New health facilities
  • A hotel
  • Open space
  • Sports and leisure facilities
  • Cycle and pedestrian links to Cambridge, Cambourne and surrounding villages
