Water sports project moves a step closer

Water sports facility and country park project surges forward as agreement signed

A 220-acre water sports complex between Milton and Waterbeach has moved one step closer to becoming a reality after an agreement was completed by the developer, landowners and a local district council.

Planning permission for the estimated £25 million complex can now be formally issued by South Cambridgeshire District Council and developers have 5 years to get the project underway.

The plans for 3.2 km of quality water connected to the River Cam also include a 2 km long international standard competition course that will be at least 100m wide. There would also be a triathlon facility, a 3-mile long cycle circuit, BMX track and a lake stocked with fish for angling.
