Plans have been drawn up for 500 new homes on the edge of Ely.
A new primary school, community hall, play areas and an extension to the proposed Ely Country Park are also in the plans.
A planning application has now been drawn up by developers for the land at Highflyer Farm, just behind the Princess of Wales Hospital.
New cycle-ways and footpaths would link the proposed country park extension to the rest of the neighbourhood.
According to developers, up to 30% of the homes would be classed as "affordable housing".
Developers also say bus routes to the centre of Ely would be improved.
