The Merrifield Centre is located in Cherry Hinton, just off Coldhams Lane, approximately 2.5 miles to the east of Cambridge city centre and Cambridge railway station. The property has excellent road links to Cambridge city centre, the A14, M11 via Fulbourn and the A11 trunk road. The property sits within an established and popular commercial area with plenty of amenities nearby including a leisure centre, hotel, and supermarket.

The site is situated opposite Cambridge Airport, owned by Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, who announced at the start of October 2020 it has taken an option of a 150-year lease at Cranfield to commence by 2030. This will release their Newmarket Road site for the development of up to 12,000 homes and around 5 million sq. ft. of business and commercial space. The timescale is relatively distant, but the quantum is significant and will create a new commercial district for the city. This forms part of the Cambridge East Area Action Plan. Directly opposite The Merrifield Centre outline planning consent has been granted for 1,200 homes, with associated retail accommodation, outdoor areas and two new schools. The development is to benefit from the latest measures in sustainable living and green energy.
