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

In October 2010,

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.
