Knights Park is an exemplar sustainable housing development located to the north of Cambridge and developed as part of the University of Cambridge’s Eddington masterplan. The development consists of 264 apartments, townhouses and family homes, and is built to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5. Its district heating system provides low-carbon heat and hot water to all homes on the development, significantly reducing carbon emissions compared to traditional development.
In addition, Knights Park incorporates green roofs, rainwater harvesting systems and sustainable drainage systems to
manage water on the site. This helps to reduce the impact of the development on the local environment and improves
biodiversity, and this was recognised by the Housing Design Award, Building with Nature.
There is an excellent cycling infrastructure and well-connected public transport links to reduce car use and promote sustainable transport. Overall, Knights Park is an exemplar, multi-award-winning sustainable housing development, which offers new levels of sustainable living.
