Introduction We are pleased to offer for sale by informal tender the freehold interest in 3.01 acres (1.261 hectares) of land that has outline planning permission and significant residential development potential.
Cambridge is a fast expanding city and is becoming a leading centre for both technology and business. It is already an attractive commuter location and the imminent re-location of Astra Zenecca will only add to pressure for more housing.

Cambridge railway station lies to the south east of the City centre, reasonably close to the site, providing direct services to London Kings Cross (journey time approximately 50 minutes). The M11 motorway (Junction 12) is located to the west of Cambridge and connects to London Stansted International Airport and London. The A14 (Junction 35) duel carriageway is located to the north of Cambridge which connects Bury St Edmunds to the east and Huntingdon to the north west.
The site is accessed off Coldhams Lane.
