Government funding of £430,000 has been awarded for a passenger and exhibition building at a park and ride site in Cambridgeshire.

The new building at Longstanton will show displays of low carbon living and environmentally-friendly initiatives.

Work on the site will begin next year and contractors believe construction will take about six months to complete.

The centre aims to set a benchmark for low carbon properties on the proposed new town of Northstowe.

Funding for the building has been awarded to Cambridgeshire County Council following a bid in partnership with Cambridgeshire Horizons and South Cambridgeshire District Council.

Roy Pegram, cabinet member for growth, infrastructure and strategic planning, said: "The building will be an asset for passengers on the busway

"Local communities will also learn more about low carbon construction and renewable energy and it will set a benchmark for what can be achieved in Northstowe."
