Overview

Hello and welcome to this community website supporting our proposals for the land at Field Road, Ramsey.

As you might be aware, Linden Homes received a resolution to grant outline planning permission to develop up to 90 new homes on land at Field Road, Ramsey last summer. Since that time, Linden Homes has been in ongoing discussions with planning officers at Huntingdonshire District Council to finalise the Section 106 agreement. This is now nearing completion and we are working with our technical consultants to develop the detailed masterplan that will form part of the Reserved Matters planning application. This will be submitted to Huntingdonshire District Council in the coming months.

Linden Homes has been developing proposals to provide a high quality residential scheme over the past few months, and following consultation with the local community in 2014, is pleased to inform you that an outline planning application has now been submitted to Huntingdonshire District Council.

The Reserved Matters planning application will seek approval for:

  • An outline application for up to 90 new homes.
  • 36 affordable homes (40%) for local people on Huntingdonshire District Council’s housing waiting list.
  • Vehicular access to the site from the junction of Field Road and
  • An element of affordable housing for local people on Huntingdonshire District Council’s waiting list.
  • Vehicular access to the site from the junction of Field Road and Blenheim Road.
  • Retention of the strategic planting belt to the west of the site.
  • Incorporation of a children’s trim trail / Leap within the site.
  • Areas of public open space including a green park located at the heart of the site.

Further details of what is proposed can be found on our consultation newsletter here.

If you have any questions please contact us using the form on the right or speak to a member of the project team on our Freephone information line.

Benefits

The development of this site would deliever a number of important benefits to the local community, including:

 

  • A direct investment of £9.4 million into the local economy
  • The delivery of much needed housing in the area on a site identified as being suitable for future development by Huntingdonshire District Council
  • A New Homes Bonus payment of nearly £652,136 to Huntingdonshire District Council and £163,034 to Cambridgeshire County Council
  • Financial contributions towards local services and infrastructure through the Community Infrastructure Levy
  • As many as 135 new jobs* created on site during the construction phase. These would be primarily with local contractors
  • Opportunities for local people seeking apprenticeships in the building industry
  • Highly efficient new homes built to the latest standards, helping reduce the cost of utility bills

The Council will now undertake a period of consultation and is expected to make a decision in the coming months.  Should outline permission be granted, a second Reserved Matters application will be required to provide details of the mix of homes.
