Six Mile Bottom

Location: Six Mile Bottom Estate, Cambridgeshire
Client: L&Q/Hill
Sector: Assess Promote Shape
Scope: Communities

Six Mile Bottom is a manifesto for a series of connected neighbourhoods in rural Cambridgeshire that uses the convergence of landscape character to set a narrative for future living and define place. The patterns of pastoral, chalk ridge and the surrounding fens will inspire the character of this new settlement. An expansive network of linear green infrastructure facilitating active travel will connect the whole settlement to a new train station and guided bus routes. The plan, which will create circa 8,500 much needed new homes, reimagines residential areas as sociable places that put people, not cars first and have their own character, landmarks and facilities. Each neighbourhood will be fine-grained and well-linked and will connect to a bigger landscape and story.
