Northstowe is a new town in Cambridgeshire, promoted by Gallagher and Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). It will be the home of around 25,000 people and is one of the NHS’s Healthy New Towns (HNT).
Northstowe Phase 2 will be contemporary and of urban character. It will be higher density than the remaining phases with an average density between 40-70 u/ha. Of the 3500 new homes, none will be further away than 12 minutes walking and 2 minutes cycling distance from the town centre, stops of the guided bus, and site wide community facilities such as the Education Campus, including primary, secondary and special needs schools.
The National Urban Design Awards were established in 2007 with the objective of giving more recognition to urban design work, particularly at project stage.
