Bourn airfield masterplan

The old airfield at Bourn saw action in the Second World War as a key RAF resource. Now derelict it is being considered as a potential development site west of the growing city of Cambridge. I have been working with Rummey Design on their proposal for Countryside Properties who are working with the local authority to review the possibility of allocating the site as a new community in the forthcoming Local Plan. The masterplan looks at the ability of the site to accommodate a relatively self-contained community that provides around 3,500 good homes, a high quality landscape structure and an urban form that will retain a sense of connection to the local landscape and character of South Cambridgeshire. The village community will contain schools, local shops and community facilities as well as clustered business space.
