We want to help expand what the Campus has to offer by providing new facilities that will enhance the current offer and deliver opportunities for new activities, research and commercial endeavours. The expansion of the Campus will provide the opportunity for scientific research to be translated into real-world health applications that genome science is making possible.
As part of this growth, we want to create a place where anyone, from scientists and students to members of the public, can come to learn about this area of science and explore its applications and implications.
Campus Development Guide
A significant expansion of the Wellcome Genome Campus at Hinxton passed a key milestone on 18th December 2020 when South Cambridgeshire District Council granted outline planning permission for the Campus expansion plans.
A summary of the Planning application can be found below, and the full application can be found on the South Cambs planning website.
The next steps will be led by our Campus delivery partner Urban&Civic (U&C). Urban&Civic are the UK’s leading Master Developer and was acquired by Wellcome in January this year. Quality placemaking, design and sustainability are at the core of the business, and they bring together the significant expertise and experience necessary to accelerate the design and delivery of Campus expansion.
