Future plans

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.

Planning application summary

Since the beginning of this year we have been consulting with Campus staff and local residents on plans to grow the Campus sustainably over the next 25 years. On 5th December 2018 the outline planning application for the expansion of the Campus was submitted to South Cambridgeshire District Council.

A summary of the Planning application can be found below. The full application can be found on the South Cambs planning website.

Working with our community

Below, you can view copies of all the materials that have been available at the public consultation events.


Stage 4 Exhibition Boards (October 2018)

This final exhibition on the outline master plan framework sets out the contents of the planning application as well as our proposed mitigation strategies and benefits.


Stage 3 Exhibition Boards (June 2018)

The June 2018 exhibition contained details of the feedback survey from the Campus and the local community, our concept & design approaches to planning the Campus expansion and our emerging transport strategy.


Stage 2 Exhibition Boards (March 2018)

The March 2018 exhibition contained an overview of Campus and Community feedback from the earlier consultation, the emerging proposals and project objectives.


Concept approach map (March 2018)

This map introduces our concept approach to developing the master plan.


Stage 1 Exhibition Boards (January 2018)

The January 2018 exhibition contained a series of information panels that gave an introduction to the Campus plans for growth and illustrated our initial master planning principles.


Community knowledge map – TRANSPORT (January 2018)

This map displays the local road and rail network. Participants had the opportunity to provide comments on the map, enhancing our understanding of frequent travel routes including routes to work and leisure/recreational activities as well as where they prefer to walk and cycle in the area.


Community knowledge map – AMENITIES (January 2018)

This map demonstrates our preliminary knowledge of the amenities that exist in the local area. Participants were given the opportunity to provide additional comments to increase our awareness of which facilities were well used, which could be improved, which were felt to be missing and how far individuals travel to use particular facilities.

Community knowledge map – ENVIRONMENT (January 2018)

This map illustrates our understanding of the landscape and key view points in the local area. Participants were given the opportunity to annotate the map with additional comments to help improve our understanding of key views, places for recreation and important wildlife habitats.
