Leisure and community
Life at Waterbeach Barracks will be full of energy, health and wellbeing. Waterbeach has a strong legacy of community; working, living and enjoying the land. This spirit provides the nucleus of the modern, sustainable and well-connected settlement being created.
Joining a thriving community
What's coming in the first phase
The first primary school, 1,600 homes, first phase of health and library provision, shops, café and amenities around the lake and within a local centre are all designed to support new residents. 25 play areas, four community orchards, allotments and a number of areas for ‘edible streets’, sports pitches, including two football pitches and a rugby pitch will encourage a healthy and active community.
