Overview

Linden Homes has recently acquired an interest in this site which already has outline planning consent for a residential development. We are now developing detailed plans for the design, appearance, layout and landscaping of 80 new homes which will soon be submitted to Peterborough City Council as a 'reserved matters' planning application.

We recently held a public exhibition at which the community was able to view the proposals and provide feedback.

Layout

We are planning:

 

  • 80 new homes, both open market and affordable, ranging in size from one-bed apartments and two-bed bungalows to five-bed houses.
  • 30% of the new homes – i.e. 24 properties – will be affordable. That means that they will be owned and managed by a housing association and made available either for shared ownership or affordable rent.
  • Parking will be provided in accordance with the City Council’s standards.
  • 1.7 hectares (4.2 acres) of green space, including an area of open space designed to create a similar environment to Barnack Hills and Holes.
  • There is also planned to be a Local Equipped Area for Play (LEAP) and we have asked Barnack Parish Council to contribute ideas for the types of equipment it would like to see installed.

History

We recently acquired this site from Gladman Developments, which was granted outline planning permission for up to 80 new homes in March 2017.

This planning consent establishes the principle of residential development on the land, including the number of homes, amount of open space and point of access.

We are now bringing forward what is known as a reserved matters application. With the principle of development already approved, this application focuses on the detailed design, appearance and layout of the homes, as well as landscaping.

The Team

Linden Homes is a national housebuilder with a reputation for building award winning homes across the UK. We have a network of regional offices from Exeter to Newcastle; this project is being managed by our team based in Peterborough. 

As the housebuilding division of the Galliford Try Group, we deliver housing for sale on the open market and also for affordable housing providers. We also carry out large scale regeneration projects, many in partnership with Homes England (formerly the HCA).

We were awarded Silver at the What House? Awards in both 2015 and 2016 for Sustainable Developer of the Year as well as Developer of the Year at the New Energy and Cleantech Awards in 2016. We are proud of this recognition from within the industry.

The Site

The site, known as Land West of Uffington Road, is located on the northern edge of Barnack. It sits to the west of the recently completed Paynes Field development on Uffington Road and to the north of existing properties on Bainton Road.

Benefits

The delivery of new homes on this site would provide a number of benefits to the wider community, including:

 

  • The provision of 24 affordable homes, in line with the policy requirements of Peterborough City Council.
  • New open space provision, accessible to everyone and designed to relieve the pressure on Barnack Hills and Holes.
  • Up to 120 jobs created on site during the construction phase, primarily with local contractors.
  • Opportunities for local people seeking apprenticeships in the building industry.
  • A Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) payment of around £700,000 to Peterborough City Council, of which Barnack Parish Council will be entitled to 15% (£105,000). NB: this figure is subject to a final layout agreed through the planning application.

Next Steps

We will consider the community's feedback on our proposals before submitting a planning application to Peterborough City Council toward the end of February/early March. If you would like to comment, or to be kept updated about the planning application, please complete the ‘Have your say’ box on this page.

In the meantime, you can call our freephone community helpline on 0800 019 2205 if you require any further information.
