The site is being sold with the benefit of Full Planning Permission for two pairs of semi detached dwellings. The planning application was a cross boundary application and two Decision Notices (19/01492/FUL & DC/19/2058/FUL) have been received; from East Cambridgeshire District Council (where the majority of the site is located) and West Suffolk Council. These Decision Notices are identical and it is important to note that the scheme has to be implemented within two years; by 2nd June 2022.
East Cambridgeshire District Council is a CIL charging authority and as a result CIL will be payable on the proposed scheme. This is believed to be in the region of approximately £83,000. Interested parties must rely upon their own calculations.
