A huge brownfield site on the edge of north Cambridge could be transformed into a "low carbon community" of new homes and jobs, councillors have revealed.
The Greater Cambridge shared planning service - a partnership between South Cambridgeshire District Council and Cambridge City Council – has published the latest plans for a new suburb on land between the A14, Cambridge North railway station and the Science Park.
Planners say the creation of new homes would reduce the need to commute, with good links to public transport, creating a "low carbon" area.
It would mean relocating Anglian Water's water treatment facility, which has proved too expensive to consider in the past, a spokesman said.
A public consultation will be carried out early next year.
