Waterbeach hosts the launch of Natural Cambridgeshire’s Doubling Nature Initiative


Urban&Civic was delighted to host Natural Cambridgeshire Partnership’s announcement of ambitious plans to double the area of rich wildlife habitats and natural green space across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough over the next 30 years at Waterbeach in July.

The Doubling Nature initiative has been drawn up by the partnership - which includes local authorities, statutory agencies, conservation charities, community groups and developers like Urban&Civic – with the aim of creating a world-class environment where nature and people thrive, and businesses prosper.

The Doubling Nature Initiative was launched by Tony Juniper, Chair of Natural England and James Palmer, Mayor of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, at separate events at Waterbeach Barracks and the Hamptons Peterborough, both of which have been heralded as outstanding examples of how high-quality housing development can deliver new areas of nature rich landscape.
