There was a public exhibition for the scheme held by Hill in June of last year during which over 160 residents attended.
Hill attended the Annual Parish Meeting on Tuesday evening and announced that they are aiming to submit their planning application for the Grace Crescent housing development before the end of May.
It will be an outline application for up to 98 units.
The scheme will be a development of about 23 units per hectare. Hill is proposing areas of open space over the site including a children’s play area.
“We have been in regular contact with both the parish council and the district council regarding the scheme”
The application is set to include:
- A minimum of 39 affordable homes
- A dedicated car parking lay by
- Introduce additional village allotments
- Pieces of play equipment will be provided in Grace Crescent – which were due to be provided during the initial development work of Grace Crescent.
- Improved public path between Grace Crescent, the Blue Lion, and St Mary’s Church
- Increase in the frequency of the existing go-whippet bus service going along Cambridge Road that stops in near vicinity of the proposed site for a trial period of six months
- The scheme will address Pre-School needs within the village
- The scheme will make a contribution toward primary healthcare in Comberton and a contribution to facilities in the village
“In summary we feel that the scheme will benefit the village and that it represents sustainable development. “
