First house builder announced at Wintringham

A planning application has been submitted by CALA Homes for 222 new homes (including affordable housing), landscaping and amenity space on the first development parcel at Wintringham, which forms part of the Eastern Gateway to St Neots.

The proposal is for 184 houses (2, 3 and 4 bed) and 38 flats (1 and 2 bed) on land south of Cambridge Road, to the east of St Neots. The application is the first detailed plans for homes within Urban&Civic’s development and reflects the high-quality design and layout agreed in the development’s Design Code.

In keeping with the vision for the development, the landscaping will create an attractive setting both for new residents and surrounding neighbours: ensuring green corridors to connect people to two new parks and play areas, with significant new tree planting, hedges and shrub beds as well as wildflower planting. The landscape will link to the larger green spaces being delivered as part of the overall development by Urban&Civic including the significant works along Cambridge Road and the refurbishment of the brooks that cross the site to deliver both benefits for nature and people.
