It has set a blueprint for supporting the environment in an area of high economic growth with an acute need for housing.
Delivered in partnership with the Universities Superannuation Scheme with Grosvenor as master developer, Trumpington Meadows sits on a former agricultural research site on the city’s southern fringe.
The high standards set by our site-wide design code have guided the award-winning architecture of 1,200 apartments and townhouses. Taking its cue from the neighbouring existing village of Trumpington, the development offers a range of homes which meet the city’s expanding needs.
Leading the way on biodiversity
Well ahead of mandated 10% net gain legislation, the scheme delivered a 46% biodiversity improvement and a 148-acre country park and nature reserve creating new habitats from a former agricultural site and new publicly accessible green space for local residents.
The park has become a much-loved place for people to enjoy, supporting residents’ health and wellbeing, as well as a haven for resurgent plant and animal species. Animals now flourishing on site include otters, lapwing, the UK’s smallest butterfly (the Small Blue) and skylarks.
In 2022, the gifting of the park to its long term managers The Wildlife Trust and a significant financial endowment, means that these achievements are now protected for the next generation.
