There was a large (approximately 30 acre, 12 hectare) site which used to have allotments, many of which were derelict, so about half the land was taken for housing. As part of the process it was agreed to build a community centre. The entire site is in fact officially located in Impington, just over the Cambridge city boundary, but morally everything south of the A14 is in Cambridge.

The fencing, which only surrounds the southern part of the building, is quite ornamental.
