Newcrest gained planning consent at S. Cambs November committee meeting to develop some 32,000 square feet of new shops in the centre of Cambourne. The new shops will be split over two sites fronting the main town car park and the high street and will range in size between around 4,000 sq ft and 11,000 sq ft.
Newcrest director, Duncan Mason commented:
“This is an exciting development for Cambourne which we have carefully worked up with the Taylor Wimpey, Bovis, and the district and parish councils. Its design and presence is intended to create added vibrancy within the town centre and to reflect tenant demand”
Newcrest is in advanced discussions with a number of national retailers and leasing announcements are expected in the New Year, with construction expected to begin later in 2013.
