Lying within Cambridgeshire – a county recognised as one of the most vibrant economies in the country - Huntingdonshire has seen significant growth in recent years and will continue to do so. Over 7, 000 jobs have been created in the district over the last decade alongside the establishment of a significant house building programme
A wide range of quality and affordable property and land options across all types of business and residential use is available within the district whilst the on-going and imminent development of a number of strategic mixed-use sites will ensure this ambitious growth agenda continues.
At the heart of this growth is:
Alconbury Weald Enterprise Campus – part of wider mixed-use development and the largest brownfield development site in single ownership in the South East of England. The Enterprise Campus – a 1,420-acre site that will deliver 8,000 jobs, 5,000 homes and 700 acres of green space. Integral to the site is Alconbury Enterprise Campus – a 150-acre Enterprise Zone offering high-quality business space for high tech, high value focussed businesses.
St Neots Eastern Expansion
226ha of land east of St Neots is proposed for mixed-use sustainable development and will comprise approximately 3,820 homes, approximately 25ha of employment land and a local centre of some 3ha containing offices
Huntingdonshire's continuous growth is further witnessed by the £1.5 billion A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme includes a major new bypass to the south of Huntingdon and upgrades to 21 miles of the A14. Work officially started in November 2016 and the new road opened to traffic on Tuesday 5 May 2020.
