Go-ahead for 3,500-home Cambs airfield scheme with 10% biodiversity net gain

Plans for a 3,500-home scheme on a former World War II airfield in South Cambridgeshire have been approved, after planners advised that the development would deliver a minimum 10 per cent biodiversity net gain and provide a “significant quantum of housing” during the current local plan period “and beyond”.
