Background Campkin Road
Cambridge Investment Partnership (CIP) is developing a new residential scheme along Campkin Road. The proposed development will replace the existing residential buildings, that are no longer fit for purpose, with a new residential scheme. The new site will provide 75 new, council rented homes. A key feature of the development will be the incorporation of green roofs, encouraging biodiversity.
Have you noticed the new images along the Campkin Road site hoardings and wondered what they were? Artist Hermione Spriggs has been working with the pupils at Grove Primary School exploring the origin of King’s Hedges and the role hedges have played in shaping the physical landscape and cultural identity of the area. Her research will inform the artwork proposed for the new homes currently being built along Campkin Road.
If you want to get involved, Hermione is gathering input and planting ideas for this artwork, to participate click here
