Bus and busway services in Trumpington
updated 4 March 2020

Stagecoach is introducing improved busway timetables on 29 March 2020, including additional services on route A and R to and from the
Trumpington Park and Ride site. See
Stagecoach service changes.

Stagecoach bus service
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 does 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. The Residents' Association was heavily involved in pressing for the introduction of this service.

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 and Trumpington Medical Centre
updated 3 February 2020

Education provision
updated 30 June 2020

The
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 supported 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 opened 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

Great Kneighton web site has marketing information. Our Clay Farm page has background and images.
