As the site is so well located, it will be possible to safely walk or cycle to university, to the shops and to the city centre.
The plan below shows the site in relation to key local amenities. The Grafton Centre is a 5-minute walk to the west; the Cambridge Retail Park a 9-minute walk to the east; and The Beehive Centre and Cambridge Railway Station a 7-minute walk and 15-minute walk to the south of the site.
The plan below shows the location of an additional 98 new cycle spaces. These will be provided in addition to those already on site, taking the total number of cycle parking spaces to 230 for the student accommodation and Cambridge School of Visual & Performing Arts.
Cycling and walking are the natural choices for travel, with students, excluding those with disabilities, prevented from owning a car. Vehicle access will continue to be off New Street with six disabled spaces located in a separate area adjacent to the existing parking for the Cambridge School of Visual & Performing Arts.
Car and cycle parking provision is provided in accordance with the standards adopted by Cambridge City Council. The 19 car parking spaces for the Cambridge School of Visual & Performing Arts will be retained as part of the proposed development.
