Outline approval was granted back in 2013 to build up to 3,000 homes for the wider development of North West Cambridge.

As an outline application, further more detailed plans needed to be submitted and approved by the local planning authority before building work could take place.

The reserved matters application for 160 homes has been submitted by Durkan Latimer Eddington LLP and the University of Cambridge, and is due to be part of the second phase of the North West Cambridge development.

The new homes are proposed to be built on two plots of land between Madingley Road and Huntingdon Road.

The site currently has a number of University of Cambridge buildings and facilities including a derelict field station, and the Old Field Laboratory.

These buildings are proposed to be demolished to make way for the new homes.

Of the 160 homes, 89 are proposed to be one and two-bedroom flats, and 71 are proposed to be houses, with a mix of three and four-bedroom homes, all of which are planned to be put up for market sale.

There are 194 parking spaces proposed, as well as 58 cycle spaces.

In planning documents submitted as part of the application, it said that the reserved matters application showed the applicant’s “desire to commence elements of the wider North West Cambridge development”.

It said the plans “take account of its context and integrates well”, as well as providing a “raft of benefits” including “high-quality” homes, “sensitively designed streets”, and “significant” ecological and place-making benefits.
