Cambridge accelerates growth

Share this article:



A new £26m railway station is planned to open at the Cambridge Science Park in 2015 which will expand access to the national rail network without the need to travel to the centre of the City. This comes at a time when significant new residential schemes are underway in Cambridge, including the Northstowe development, the UK’s biggest new town since Milton Keynes and which will directly benefit from the new station in the North of Cambridge. The development of thousands of other new homes are either underway or in the pipe line on the edges of the City.

The economic think tank, Cities Outlook 2013, is reported to have placed Cambridge as the fifth fastest growing city in the UK and Hewitsons’ property, planning and construction law teams are involved in advising on education, commercial and residential projects in the City as well as in its region and is well placed to advise developers, funders as well as occupiers involved in property development and related transactions.
