New homes on old RAF Northstowe base

The Northstowe project would see the creation of a new town between Huntingdon and Cambridge.

The Government now wants to commission new homes itself if developers fail to meet the demand for house building and Northstowe could be used for the scheme.

It comes as the Government announced its new national infrastructure plan - which will also see £44 million spent on building a new railway station at Cambridge's Science Park.
