Multi-million pound investment could unlock low carbon community on the edge of Cambridge


South Cambridgeshire District Council welcomes the announcement of funding by the Chancellor in the Spring Statement today.

Cllr Aidan Van de Weyer, Deputy Leader and Lead Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning at South Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “We have huge ambitions for developing a low carbon new community on this site and the funding from Government to relocate the Water Recycling Centre is key to realising its full potential.

“We know that people in South Cambridgeshire will want to know where the Water Recycling Centre will be relocated to, but we are just at the very start of the process for deciding this.

“What I can say is that we will be working hard with Anglian Water and the relevant planning authorities to ensure the process is robust, transparent and gives people good opportunities to have their say.

“We also think there is a real positive opportunity here to develop a brand-new modern facility which will resolve some of the issues people living near the current Water Recycling Centre experience.”
