National property consultancy Carter Jonas has secured planning consent on behalf of Barratt and David Wilson Homes (Eastern Counties) to deliver 410 homes (of which 40% are affordable housing) in North West Cambridge, on part of a larger scheme known as Darwin Green 1.
Consent was awarded by Cambridge City Council on 15 December.
The Reserved Matters planning consent is for a site of 9 hectares. This forms part of a mixed-use development, comprising up to 1593 homes, a primary school, community facilities, shops and associated infrastructure including pedestrian and routes and attractive open spaces.
James Stone, Associate Partner at Carter Jonas in Cambridge commented: ‘Carter Jonas was pleased to help achieve planning success for this high quality new development which is sensitively designed to incorporate sustainable technologies. It will provide much needed housing for Cambridge, with almost half of all units being affordable housing.’
Simon Wood, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes (Eastern Counties), commented: ‘We are delighted to have received unanimous support from the Committee members and in particular the praise from the Chair commending us on taking a proactive approach to engagement and to future proofing the development. Carter Jonas’ planning input greatly assisted in us achieving this positive outcome’.
Work is due to begin on site in the next few months and to be fully complete by 2030. Carter Jonas will continue to be involved in the planning process.
In achieving planning success, Carter Jonas worked alongside Tate Hindle (architects), CSA Environmental (landscape architects) and Woods Hardwick (highways and infrastructure advice).
