Urban & Civic has submitted a hybrid planning application for 2,800 homes and new business space at Wintringham in Cambridgeshire, as part of its expansion of St Neots.
The application consists of an outline application for the development as a whole, as well as the detailed infrastructure for the first phase.
The development will comprise:
In 2013, the Wintringham site was subject to a planning application by a former consortium, which was refused and subsequently appealed. The appeal was withdrawn in May 2017 and the consortium disbanded. Since then, Urban & Civic has bought into the landowning partnership alongside long term owners, the Nuffield Trusts, and been appointed development manager.
Tim Leathes, development director at Urban & Civic said: “The interest and engagement we had at the recent events has reinforced our sense that Wintringham is an exciting opportunity to deliver new homes in an attractive setting to the growing town of St Neots. The town is one of the best connected in the region, with strong rail and road links.
“Drawing on the strong partnerships we have developed over the last 7 years working in Cambridgeshire – including the jobs and skills delivery through the EDGE partnership – we intend to develop this site in a way that maximises the benefits for local people and creates a lasting legacy for the area.”
