Developer Urban & Civic has submitted plans for 2,800 homes and a new business district at its Wintringham Park site in Cambridgeshire.
The hybrid planning application forms part of the developer’s plans for an urban expansion of St Neots and will see 683,500 sq ft of commercial space, two primary schools and retail space built alongside the new homes.
The application for the 160 ha site also includes detailed consent for the associated infrastructure works on the urban expansion that will assist the first phase of construction.
Improvements include new access and landscape setting along Cambridge Road, and access points onto the A428 and Potton Road.
A consortium originally brought forward the plans in 2013 but was unable to gain planning consent for the site and was disbanded in May 2017.
Urban & Civic development director Tim Leathes said: “The town is one of the best connected in the region, with strong rail and road links.
“While we know there is concern around some of the current traffic issues, the investment in the A14 and A428 and our commitment to invest in the local road and bus connections will go hand in hand with creating green corridors for safe cycle and walking routes to help people connect with the station and town centre, to get about safely and connect with nature.”
