News: 11 January 2017Success for new homes at West Cambourne

Barton Willmore’s Cambridge team has secured a resolution to grant outline planning permission on behalf of MCA Developments Limited for 2,350 homes in West Cambourne.

Cambourne, a new settlement which to date has delivered over 3,500 homes to the region since 1998, is currently made up of three urban villages. This latest phase, to the West, is set become the fourth village, enhancing the town’s provision of housing and local amenities while linking to existing homes.

In total the scheme will provide 2,350 homes, at a mix of tenures, as well as land for new primary and secondary schools, sports and leisure facilities, open space, retail and up to seven hectares of employment space.

Steven Kosky, Director in Barton Willmore’s Cambridge office, said: “After quite a few years of robust promotion to help make the case for a fourth linked-village at Cambourne, it is with some satisfaction that South Cambridgeshire have now formally endorsed the proposals.”

He said: “With South Cambridgeshire growing at an unprecedented rate, thanks to the popularity of the region and Cambridge City itself, it’s hugely important that we’re using settlements such as Cambourne to provide much needed homes and facilities to ensure growth is sustainable, particularly given the land pressures that the county on the Green Belt. We look forward to assisting our clients; to help implement this exciting new phase in the evolution of Cambourne.”

South Cambridgeshire District council resolved to grant planning permission for the scheme on 11th January.
