East West Rail and Cambridge South railway station and Trumpington
updated 9 May 2019

East West Rail has been consulting on potential rail routes between Bedford and Cambridge. It has identified five route options, all of which
approach Cambridge from the south and would have an impact on Trumpington. See
East West Rail for information.

There are also plans for a new Cambridge South railway station to be located on the main line in Trumpington, serving the Cambridge
Biomedical Campus and south Cambridge. Details should become clearer later in 2019.

Park & Ride developments and Bus Priority measures in Trumpington
updated 10 May 2019

The Greater Cambridge Partnership has been consulting on two options for additional park and ride spaces: either the further expansion of
the existing Trumpington Park & Ride site by adding a multi-storey area with 946 additional spaces; or a second site north west of Junction
11, with 2260 additional spaces. Recommendations are being put to the Greater Cambridge Partnership in June. There are also proposals for
bus priority measures through Trumpington into the city centre.

Bus services in Trumpington
updated 2 April 2018

A new Stagecoach bus service, number
25, started on 7 January 2018. This provides links within Trumpington and between Trumpington
and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus/Addenbrooke's Hospital, including going along Hobson Avenue/Lime Avenue, passing the Clay Farm
Centre and Trumpington Community College. The route goes eastbound from the High Street (Anstey Way bus stop) down Shelford Road,
turn left on to Addenbooke’s Road, turn left along Hobson Avenue and Lime avenue through the Clay Farm developments of Abode, Aura
and Halo, turn right on to Long Road, to Addenbrooke’s bus station; from where it will do the westbound route via Dame Mary Archer Way
and Addenbrooke’s Road, along Hobson Avenue and Lime Avenue again, to Long Road and Trumpington High Street and the Anstey Way
bus stop again. This has been referred to as the “figure of eight” service. The Residents' Association has been heavily involved in pressing
for the introduction of this service.

Unfortunately, Stagecoach cut Citi 7 and other bus services through Trumpington in July 2017. This affected
Citi 7 and services 26 and 27,
none of which stop on Trumpington High Street between 9 am and 5 pm Monday-Saturday or at any time on Sunday. The Trumpington
Residents' Association has been campaigning against the changes and issued a
statement explaining our concern

Addenbrooke's Road/Cambridge Biomedical Campus Traffic Regulation Order (TRO)
updated 22 May 2017

Addenbrooke's Road provides road access from Trumpington to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (CBC) and Addenbrooke's Hospital, but
is not a through route. The use of the ANPR cameras was reintroduced on 22 May 2017. See the statement on the
CBC and Cambridgeshire
Constabulary websites.

The Trumpington Residents' Association has also issued a statement on the Addenbrooke's Road/Cambridge Biomedical Campus Traffic
Regulation Order:

1. Addenbrooke's Road was constructed to give access to Addenbrooke's Hospital and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and the Glebe
Farm and Clay Farm housing developments. Planning approval for the road was given on this basis, after recommendations in the Southern
Fringe Area Development Framework which was approved by the local councils in 2006 and supported by the TRA.
2. The roads within the Campus have been and have remained private roads, not for public use as through routes.
3. When Addenbrooke's Road opened in 2010, the County Council approved a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) allowing the Campus
authorities and the police to monitor vehicles leaving Addenbrooke's Road to enter the Campus site and to issue penalty notices to drivers
who used the Campus roads as a through route.
4. In late 2014, it was established that there were flaws in the wording of the original TRO and the police stopped enforcing it but the
Campus roads continued to have private status and should not have been used as a through route.
5. The County Council, Campus authorities and police have now established a new TRO and are re-imposing the controls on the use of the
private roads within the Campus by through traffic.
6. The TRA fully supported the original decision to limit the use of Addenbrooke's Road to being an access road to the Campus and the
housing developments and not part of a through route around the south of Cambridge. The TRA fully supports the re-imposition of controls
on the private roads within the Campus by through traffic.
7. The TRA realises that the consequence of the re-imposition of the TRO will be additional traffic and congestion in Trumpington and
additional journey lengths for some local residents. We will continue to press the councils, City Deal and Campus authorities for effective
action to improve this situation through better road management, bus and Busway services - including a local bus service within
Trumpington and to the Campus - and Park & Ride services.

The Clay Farm Centre
updated 28 May 2019

The Clay Farm Centre has been open to the public since April 2018. Hobson Square and the Clay Farm Centre were officially opened on 27
October 2018. Located alongside Hobson Square at the junction of Lime Avenue/Hobson Avenue on Clay Farm, the centre includes a hall,
multipurpose rooms, meeting rooms, library, cafe, medical practice and apartments. The opening of the medical practice has been
considerably delayed. On 21 May 2019, the City Council said "The Council can confirm that all the defect works to the medical practice
floor within the Clay Farm Centre have now been completed and approved by all parties. The Trumpington Medical Practice are now
working with the Council and NHS England to take occupation of the second floor, and open the new Surgery at the Clay Farm Centre
within the coming months.". Contact the
Centre for room bookings, etc. The Centre Manager is Alison Sutton. The project was managed by
Cambridge City Council, with the Residents' Association on the Project Board and now on the Advisory Group. See our
Clay Farm Centre
public art pages for more information about the Centre and Hobson Square.

Greater Cambridge Partnership proposals
updated 27 October 2017

Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) is developing proposals for a 'western orbital' bus network around the west and south of the city,
including additional spaces at the existing Trumpington Park & Ride site and a new Park & Ride site at Junction 11 of the M11, and also on
plans to tackle congestion. For further information, see the GCP
West of Cambridge page.

South Trumpington parish
updated 12 January 2018

boundary to the M11, with effect from 1 April 2017. A
Parish Meeting has been established. This area includes part of the Trumpington
Meadows housing development, Trumpington Meadows Primary School and part of Trumpington Meadows Country Park.

Cambridge Community Collection
updated 16 August 2016

across Trumpington and the surrounding area, the
Cambridge Community Collection. The project has a Facebook page. The project team

updated 6 December 2013

and the Trumpington Local History Group to commemorate the way the City Council and the two groups have worked together in the
naming of streets in the new housing developments (Clay Farm, Glebe Farm and Trumpington Meadows).

Education provision
updated 5 December 2016

Children's Centre at Fawcett School serves the Southern Fringe, as a base for services in Newnham, Hauxton and parts of the Shelfords
as well as Trumpington.

The County Council is supporting an extension to
Fawcett School, new primary schools at Trumpington Meadows and Clay Farm and a
new secondary school at Clay Farm. As part of the consultation process, it produced a
background document, with information about
existing educational provision, forecasts for future needs, details of the new educational facilities and the statutory process for establishing
these facilities.

The plans for
Trumpington Park Primary School (Clay Farm) were approved in September 2016. The school is under construction and
due to open in September 2017.

Trumpington Meadows Primary School opened in September 2013. The school is part of a federation with Fawcett Primary School.

The City of Cambridge Education Foundation is responsible for
Trumpington Community College. The planning application for the school
was approved on 17 April 2013 and students moved to the new site in September 2016. The College includes
Trumpington Sport, indoor
and outdoor sports facilities for community use.

Marketing name of the Clay Farm and Glebe Farm developments
updated 29 November 2014

In October 2010,
Countryside Properties announced that it would use 'Great Kneighton' as the marketing name for Clay Farm and Glebe
Farm. The Residents' Association strongly disagreed with the decision on the marketing name, which is an inappropriate and historically
inaccurate name which detracts from the community's sense of place and belonging. The Association will continue to work with Councillors
and officers in Cambridge City Council to ensure that the development is integrated into the existing community of Trumpington and that the
area and facilities within the new developments are named appropriately.

Clay Farm/Showground development
