From the outset our guiding principles for Alconbury Weald have been:

  • Enterprise and Opportunity
  • Connections: linking landscapes and people
  • Using resources wisely
  • Creating a sense of place

The environment is central to all of these.

Designed for military purposes and to keep all but authorised personnel out, the former airfield - with its 11 miles of perimeter fencing - currently sits within the area but is not part of it. The development of Alconbury Weald provides us all with the opportunity to reintegrate this land into the surrounding environment.
