Development of the site would boost the local economy through the provision of jobs, therefore supporting the high tech cluster to the south and east of Cambridge. The extent of residential development would assist in ensuring that there are enough dwellings in the region to support the District's expected population growth. The proposed infrastructure improvements to the A11/A14 junction would deliver significant highway benefits, including reducing journey times. A potential new railway station would take advantage of the existing under-utilised rail infrastructure to the east of Cambridge (which is on the Cambridge to Ipswich line), and thus provide access to high quality public transport. This provides a significant opportunity to deliver cross-boundary working as required by the NPPF. The areas within which the site is located is outside the greenbelt on the administrative boundary between South Cambridgeshire and East Cambridgeshire District Council.

Approximately 5,000 dwellings initially with potential to grow to circa 10,000 dwellings. It should be noted, however, that the site falls within both the South Cambridgeshire and East Cambridgeshire Districts. It is therefore proposed that approximately 2,000 dwellings will be delivered in South Cambridgeshire. Further land is available as required. Approximately 14.4 hectares of employment land could be made available in South Cambridgeshire.

A number of vehicular accesses will be improved and proposed in order to access the development. Considering the strategic scale of the development, it is too early to confirm where the proposed accesses will be at this stage. The development is, however, likely to result in improvements to the existing highway network, with a particular focus on an upgrade to the existing A11/A14 junction.

Yes (please give details)

The topography of the land slopes downwards from the south-east to the north-west. Any proposed layout will therefore need to be sympathetic to the site's contours, in order to reduce any amenity issues, e.g. overlooking. Landscape buffering will also assist in reducing the visual impact in terms of long views into and out of the site.

Yes (Please give details)

Small portions of the site are located in Flood Zone 3. However, the flood zones are narrow in nature and follow existing drainage channels. Should the site be developed it is anticipated that extensive upgrades to the existing drainage system will be made, therefore resulting in the risk of flooding on-site being reduced, to ensure that all building development is delivered on land within flood zone 1. There is no known contamination on the site. Any future planning application would be accompanied by a Phase 1 Contamination Assessment, which would assess the likelihood of contamination and recommend mitigation measures (if necessary). The northern and south-western portions of the site are located in SSSI Impact Risk Zones. The SSSI's that could be impacted by the development are Fleam Dyke and Newmarket Heath. It is unknown as to whether protected species are present on-site. Any future planning application would be accompanied by a Phase 1 Ecology Assessment, which would assess the likelihood of protected species on-site, then further surveys would be undertaken and mitigation measures would be proposed e.g. the provision of bat/bird boxes. The site comprises three Grade II listed buildings (Barn About 60 Metres West of Westley Lodge; St George's Church; and Milestone to South West of Six Mile Bottom Post Mill at NGR 585 580). Four Schedule Ancient Monuments are located in the northern portion of the site (Three bowl barrows 640m north west of Hare Park Stud; five bowl barrows 270m north of Hare Park Stud; Romano-British settlement 200m west of Allington Hill; and four bowl barrows at Allinton Hill, 420m south west of Allington Hill Farm). In addition to the aforementioned heritage assets, number of Grade II listed buildings are located in close proximity to the site. These include Milestone to South East of Lower Hare Park Farm at NGR 596 593; The Thatches; Milestone 5 Metres East of Spring Hall Farm; Barn at Spring Hall Farm; The Folly; Orchard Cottage; and Barn to North East of Underwood Hall. Two Grade II* listed buildings are also located in close proximity to the site - Six Mile Bottom Windmill; and Parish Church of St Mary The Less, Westley Waterless. Any proposed development of the site will ensure that the character and significance of these heritage assets is respected. This could be achieved through appropriate landscape buffering and setting back development a suitable distance from any heritage assets. A number of Rights of Way are located on site. These include a byway running along the site's southern boundary (REF: 254/19) and traversing across the centre of the site to the east, west and north (REFS 260/11; 260/12; 251/11; 260/10; 30/1; and 250/2), with a further footpath in the northern portion of the site which intersects the A11 (REF: 223/8). A railway line runs through the centre of the site. Any future planning application for development of this part of the site would be accompanied by a Noise Assessment. Whilst it is likely that the built environment would need to be set back from the railway line in order to minimise the impact on residential amenity, should the development result in the provision of an additional railway station then there is an opportunity to provide higher density residential development close to this public transport facility. The northern portion of the site is intersected by the A14/A11 junction. As part of the development, however, an upgrade to this junction could be delivered if necessary. Such a proposal could improve the capacity and safety of the existing highway network.

The site is suitable for residential and employment uses as part of a consolidated mixed use allocation and/or a component of a wider cluster of research related development in this sustainable location. A planning application by Smithson Hill is currently at appeal for development at Hinxton Grange. This development seeks to provide the UK's first national hub focussed on the advancement of AgriTech and associated businesses. This will provide significant employment alongside sites such as the Genome Campus, the Babraham Campus, Granta Park and Chesterford Research Park. In order to meet housing demand created in the area, the land will allow further employment or residential development as part of a comprehensive allocation in a sustainable location. It could also be included as part of a wider allocation.

The proposal is to create a New South Cambridgeshire Village with its own identity, but which supports the surrounding villages of Barrington, Foxton and Shepreth by providing a new transport hub as well as enhanced local services and facilities. The New Village could act as a central hub and provide significant new services, facilities and community benefits. The proposals aim to establish a coherent mix of uses that will bring value and benefit to the local area.

The proposal allows for a number of opportunities to bring benefits to the area and make a positive contribution to the health and wellbeing of the existing and future community. The benefits could comprise: - An approach to work collaboratively and shape the proposals with the involvement of the community and stakeholders. - To be part of the green and sustainable agenda, to strive for homes that are built to the highest environmental standards. - A development that is not in the greenbelt. - To fully utilise the opportunity to travel by train - To enhance pedestrian and cycle movement across the A10 and better connect local communities including contribution to the delivery of a new A10 crossing - Increased pedestrian and cycle access into and through countryside - To work with the local community to establish what services and facilities the development could introduce or support; such as open space, play space, sports facilities, community space and education. - Investment into the villages - Development can bring about significant investment into a local area, to enhance the health and wellbeing of the locality. A scale of development that can afford to deliver benefits. - Providing new development adjacent to Foxton in a manner that will respect the existing character and identity of the villages but close enough to provide new facilities for the existing community - Introducing new jobs and adding to the range of jobs available - giving people a better chance of living and working in the same area. An opportunity to travel by train to get to work. - A mix of housing - to be able to provide for a greater range of housing options in the local area; such as smaller, more affordable homes, homes for the elderly and long-term private rented homes.

- Residential (Class C3), which could provide between 900-1800 dwellings at an average density of 30-40 dwellings per hectare including affordable homes; - Public open space, including the creation of an informal amenity area which could include play facilities, ecological habitat creation and public art. - The employment area is likely to be for B1 (office, research and development uses). The employment area is expected to provide for a variety of spaces with different size buildings and different types of spaces with different size buildings and different types of spaces to cater for a wide range of needs and be able to offer space for start-up companies that would need larger buildings and employ more people. The employment area currently earmarked for the development would be an area of 2 hectares, with some 10,000 - 20, 000 sqm of floorspace. The amount and type of employment floorspace will be refined through further masterplan development and stakeholder engagement. - Increased pedestrian/cycling links to better connect the surrounding villages - A transport hub including mixed-use area with parking, cycle facilities, transport information and community uses (class D1) to support the local villages.

It is considered that the development proposals could deliver numerous tangible social, economic and environmental benefits to the local area, including: - The opportunity to deliver affordable housing to help meet the needs of Cambridge and Fulbourn; - A landowner who wishes to work the community in order to shape a proposal which meets the needs of and can provider wider benefits to Cambridge, as was achieved in the Fulbourn Care Home scheme adjacent to the site; - Improving the accessibility to the site by providing open space, play and recreation space tat is accessible to residents throughout the village; - Redeveloping part of the site which is brownfield land and therefore in accordance with the councils' sustainability agenda; and - The potential to provide specialist housing such as elderly care accommodation.

The site could accommodate a landscape design-led residential development of approximately 150 residential units, subject to further design work. This would include 40% affordable housing subject to viability, landscaping, vehicular access and formal and informal open space, taking into account the trees around the boundary of the site. The site could also accommodate specialist housing including elderly accommodation or student housing. Alternatively, the site could accommodate a range of potential employment uses including offices, a hotel, or employment floorspace ranging from uses B1, B1b, B1c, Ba or B8.

Mixture

Development would involve removal of large agri-commercial buildings to make way for new family residential development of up to 200 units on the northern parcel. The southern parcel could accommodate approximately 70 dwellings together with public open space on its southern side which provides recreational area for the development and the village of Melbourn respecting its setting on the northern boundary. The proposed residential development will include mixed housing types, an area of amenity space and an improved footpath to Melbourn village college. A new cycle way is also proposed with appropriate lighting to improve access and security lighting to improve access and security linking Meldreth railway station to Melbourn.

Market and affordable housing

Public open space

This is a development with potential for improved safety and access off Station Road and improving links to the college and the wider community. Benefits include: - Improved vehicular access serving a family residential development; - A mix of housing types; - A new cycle way and footpath between Meldreth and Melbourn connecting the village, college, train station and public open space. The development serves as a vital link between Meldreth and Melbourn and will ensure that students from across both communities will have a direct, safe and well lit connection to Melbourn village college which is particularly important throughout the winter moths.

The site is not within a Flood Zone. The site is within an area of 'Medium' flood risk from surface water drainage. There is no evidence of any previous use which would suggest the site has been contaminated. There are no listed buildings within close proximity to the site and the site is not within a designated wildlife site. Preliminary assessments will be undertaken to determine the condition of the site in terms of contamination, ecology and drainage but there are no significant issues.

The site is located adjacent to existing houses which have access to key utilities. There is a telegraph pole and line that crosses the site which may need to be redirected.

Market and affordable housing

Public open space

The proposal at Duxford includes a number of opportunities to bring benefits to the area and make a positive contribution to the health and wellbeing of the existing and future community. The benefits could comprise: Excellent connectivity to existing transport infrastructure assets including the M11, A505 and local links, minimising the distance travelled and time spent on the local road network. • Ideally situated to contribute to the substantial development of rail facilities and services at Whittlesford Parkway station. • Well placed to provide a much-needed Green Link between the station, Duxford, the aviation research campus and IWM, helping to connect communities, businesses and amenities throughout the local area. • Further argument for connection to Smart Cambridge’s proposed autonomous mass-transit link serving Cambridge from outlying areas, including Duxford. • Co-location with Duxford village offers the potential to extend local amenity provision and encouraging those living and working in the area to stay local.

The proposal could deliver in the range of 800 new homes and some 110,000 sqm of employment floorspace. A scale of development that can afford to provide and support additional services and facilities in the village.

Market and affordable housing , Custom or self build housing

Nothing chosen

Histon & Impington has struggled to locate new housing development due to the shape of the villages and their encirclement by green belt land. By allowing development of this site the community will gain much needed market and affordable housing whilst putting the site to a more appropriate use. The site is in a sustainable location providing housing within walking distance of the local schools, shops and amenities, thus reducing car journeys in comparison developments on the outskirts of the villages. The development would be undertaken by a local company which would create jobs, bolster the local economy and reduce travel times and emissions. The rear portion of the site is currently unused entirely and serves no real functional purpose for either the owner or the village itself. By reallocating this land it will act as resource for the local population rather than a burden on the owner.

20 units. The formula of 30 per hectare would suggest 22 units for the size of site. However, to provide safe vehicular, cycle and pedestrian access and particularly so close to a school, it is felt that a slightly lower number should be provided. However, we are happy to be advised further by the Greater Cambridge Partnership.

The site is available immediately and could be developed quickly as the site is owned by the potential developer who is based locally. The site is also one of very few available sites within Impington and would have unquestionable market appeal for buyers.
