Residents are invited to discuss plans for a new science area on land south of Coldhams Lane in Cambridge.
Mission Street, the new developer of the land west of Kathleen Elliot Way which is known as Parcel A, is inviting local people, and interested parties to have their say on their proposals for the site.
Stewart Kain, development director of Mission Street, said: “We are now bringing forward a fresh vision for the site having withdrawn the industrial/logistics proposals previously being pursued.
“We have been listening to local residents and their representatives in developing our vision for the site and this is our first opportunity to share our emerging thinking with the wider community.
“Our vision is for a development forming a core part of a cluster of science and innovation on the edge of the city centre.
“The site will be connected to local amenities and sustainable transport, major areas of residential development and will be closely interlinked with the existing ecosystem at the Biomedical Campus, the South Cambridge cluster and the tech cluster to the north of the city.

“This development will be of the highest quality as well as being integrated with surrounding communities – part of the fabric of Cambridge rather than a segregated science park.
“An opportunity exists to create a truly exceptional environment including workplaces, community facilities and public access to c.50 acres of landscaped green space including the lakes.
“Historically on the edge of, but closed to Cherry Hinton village, the proposed development will seek to open up the site and blur the lines between research occupiers and local communities, encouraging movement into and through the site.
“It will stimulate local investment, create a wide range of employment opportunities, and inspire a generation of children and young people to engage with STEM subjects in an exciting and meaningful way.
“Our plans include benefits for the community and we want to hear from local residents and across Cambridge about what they feel are their priorities.”
