Comberton is an historic rural village in the green belt in South Cambridgeshire, UK – some 4 miles to the south west of Cambridge with over 943 dwellings and population exceeding 2,360 (2300 on 2021 census).

An attractive blend of old and new, it is well served by local education, sports and community facilities with reasonable transport links.

Even more new homes are being build to the west of the village framework opposite the village college in the parish of Toft, despite Comberton opposition. More sewage, more traffic, water,  other utilities and facilities usage without any precept (S106 / CIL) benefit to the village (it went to Toft)





This is how a proposed Retirement ‘village’ would appear  in our village….
