New Build

Newnham College is planning to replace the 1968 Strachey Building and to create a new entrance to the College along Sidgwick Avenue.

The College is working with Walters & Cohen Architects, BHSLA Landscape Architects, Savills and other specialist consultants to produce a design which complements the existing elegant and inspiring environment with a high quality, flexible and energy efficient new building, and enhances our gardens.

There has been a programme of on-going consultation both within and without the College since January 2015, inviting comments to help inform the emerging designs of the proposals as we progressed towards submission of a planning application.

A more detailed overview of the project can be read here and visit our news pages for the latest developments.

The full planning application can be viewed on the Cambridge City Council website.

And a live stream of the development can be watched via four webcams.
