Demolition has now commenced at Newbury Farm near Cambridge, marking the start of works that will see the construction of a community of 230 new homes.
The site, owned by This Land, is located on the south-east fringes of Cambridge, and sits between Worts Causeway and Babraham Road.
The existing buildings are being demolished along with a concrete yard. The demolition work will see as much material recycled as possible to minimise landfill.
On completion of demolition works, the site will be cleared and work will commence on infrastructure works including the creation of the main access road on to the site.
Once completed, Eddeva Park will be a community of 230 new homes. Ideally located for access in to Cambridge City centre and walking distance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, it will include a mix of properties sizes ranging from starter homes to larger family homes, as well as affordable housing.
As part of the enabling works, an archaeological dig started earlier this month. The site has been identified as a possible site of a Bronze Age settlement and a team from Oxford Archaeology East are carrying out excavations. This work will ensure that any significant historical findings are recorded and any artefacts safely recovered and removed.
