A third of the development site will be open space which is a fantastic opportunity to create an environmentally rich area

A proportion of the buildings within the North West Cambridge Development have been designed to provide nesting features for birds of conservation concern.  The number and type of nest sites being provided varies between the different development lots. For example, the school building will incorporate six nesting features designed specifically for swifts; Our key worker housing will provide nest sites for house sparrows, swifts and starlings.  In addition, features to encourage use of new buildings by roosting bats have been incorporated into the design of the sports pavilions and the cluster of utility buildings in the southern part of the site.
