Designed to be a car-free school, access is on foot, by scooter or bicycle. The layout will encourage healthy social interactions, with spaces for parents to meet and get to know each other as they join the growing community.
Community space coming forward in the first phase will include health provision, linked to the Village Surgery, providing additional capacity for the existing village and services for the new residents. This will later be expanded to develop a large Health centre for the development and wider area.
Community space will also provide a library for first residents, to be designed to complement the existing Waterbeach Independent Lending Library, providing additional space for books, services and activities.
