    We are currently working on a residential development proposal for approximately 169 new homes including open space, located on land to the south of Eastrea Road, Whittlesey.

    The site, which is situated between the entrance to Gildenburgh Dive Centre and Bellman's Grove is solely owned by Taylor Wimpey.

    As part of the design process, we held a public exhibition on 17 June 2015 at The Manor Centre, Station Road, Whittlesey.  We aim to provide local people with the opportunity to view our  proposals and to provide their own views and feedback on the emerging scheme.

    If you have any queries or comments regarding the scheme, you can contact the project team by clicking the Email Us icon on this page.

  • About the Site

    Our proposed development layout (shown below), has been designed to respond to its immediate setting, the existing landscape structure and surrounding infrastructure network.


    20812  Whittlesey  Development Layout  140515


    The proposed development site covers an approximate area of 5.8 hectares and is situated to the west of the Gildenburgh Dive Centre.  To the north is a new development due to deliver 460 new homes, currently being constructed by Larkfleet Homes.  Our site will be accessed off a new roundabout on Eastrea Road which is currently under construction.  To the south of the site there is an existing nature reserve and the design of our proposals ensures that there is a sufficient buffer between the new homes and this important feature. To the west of the site there are existing properties including a number of bungalows.  Our scheme has been designed to ensure this boundary has been considered sympathetically.

  • What's Proposed

    The proposed new homes due to be provided on this development shall include up to 25% affordable housing consisting of varying tenures along with a generous mix of 2 to 4 bedroom homes of differing sizes, as well as a number of 2 bedroom bungalows.

    At this early stage in the planning and engagement process, a character assessment of the local area has been carried out which shall inform the design of the new homes to be proposed.  Overall, a number of character areas shall be designed into the scheme with a view to providing architectural interest, variation and familiararity to the local area throughout.

    An example as to how our homes may look is provided below:

  • Community Benefits

    As well as providing much-needed high quality homes ideal for local first time buyers wishing to buy in the area, up to 25% of all the homes will provide affordable housing for the local community. Our proposed development will contribute towards a range of services and infrastructure for the Whittlesey community. This will be done by way entering into a Section 106 Agreement with Cambridgeshire County Council during the planning process to ensure that adequate funding is in place to provide these local services and infrastructure. Further details relating to these provisions and contributions shall be provided in the near future once agreed with the Local Authorities.
