Overview

As you might be aware, Linden Homes received outline planning permission to develop up to 80 new homes on land east of Glebe Farm last spring.

Since that time, Linden Homes has been in ongoing discussions with planning officers at Huntingdonshire District Council to finalise the Section 106 agreement. This has now been finalised and, having worked with our technical consultants to develop the detailed masterplan, Linden Homes has now submitted its Reserved Matters planning application.

Reserved Matters are the design details of layout, scale, appearance and landscaping that were reserved for future agreement by the Council. All of these Reserved Matters are yet to be determined by the Council and are therefore part of the submitted application. Matters such as the principle of development on the site, the points of vehicular access and the total number of homes that can be built on the site were agreed as part of the outline planning permission.

The Reserved Matters planning application seeks approval for:

  • A mix of 80 new homes ranging from one to five bedrooms.
  • 32 affordable homes for local people on Huntingdonshire District Council’s housing waiting list.
  • New green public open space along the northern boundary of the site adjacent to Sawtry Brook, including a small children’s play area.
  • A large area of green space in the south west corner of the site providing an enhanced area of wildlife habitat.

You can now comment on the application through the Huntingdonshire District Council’s planning portal using the application number 16/01109/REM on the following link:

Benefits

The development of this site would represent a direct investment of £7.3 million into the local economy and would provide a number of benefits for Sawtry, including:

  • A New Homes Bonus payment of nearly £500,000 to Huntingdonshire District Council and over £120,000 to Cambridgeshire County Council.
  • Financial contributions towards local services and infrastructure to support the new homes, including education and health, through the Community Infrastructure Levy. This is likely to be circa £477,977.
  • A Section 106 package which includes affordable housing, securing the long-term maintenance of open space, a Green Travel Plan and wheeled bins for residents.
  • £46,000 towards off-site facilities as part of the Section 106 package.
  • As many as 120 new jobs created on site during the construction phase. These would be primarily with local contractors (calculated using an industry-standard formula).
  • 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.
