The development would be built by Brookgate and would be the biggest cycle park in the UK. The spaces would be operated by the train company Greater Anglia and would also include a cycle and bike hire shop.

The planning application will also include a 230-bedroom hotel which would be built above the cycle park together with new shop or restaurant units.

Sven Töpel, Chief Executive of Brookgate, said:

“We have been working closely with the council and Greater Anglia to come up with a

scheme that addresses the substantial demand for more cycle parking spaces at Cambridge


A new station square and transport interchange are important benefits of the CB1

development, and achieving planning permission for the cycle park will be a significant step

towards the delivery of our plans to create a new transport hub for the city centre.”
