As well as site preparation, infrastructure and landscaping, a key consideration in the new development is accessibility for all. Our team has been working closely with the local authority accessibility team and other specialists to understand requirements and incorporate solutions into the design of facilities and amenities at Waterbeach – including play spaces and street furniture.
Travel and transport
This continues to be an important part of creating a sustainable new community and recent work has focused on the delivery of early pedestrian and cycle routes, both on and off site. Improvements to the A10 pedestrian/cycle path will begin in the next few weeks, as we finalise the plans for work on the Mere Way cycle route to start in the spring.
We also continue to work with and support local community initiatives and are delighted to welcome the Waterbeach Community Market to the Barracks, with local artisans selling a wide range of products on the third Sunday of each month. We have also provided an update on the great work and activities of the Waterbeach Military Heritage Museum, Farmland Museum, Tithe Barn and the Great Fen.
