Developer Taylor Wimpey East Anglia has submitted two reserved matters applications, one for 190 homes and another for 286, on land west of Cambourne.

The homes are part of an allocation of 2,350, which was granted outline planning permission in 2017.

The smaller of the two applications, with 190 homes, of which 57 will be designated affordable housing, will be located towards the south of the Cambourne West site.

The larger, with 286 homes, and 86 designated affordable, will be on land to the west of Sheepfold Lane, and north of Cambourne Village College.

The two applications will form part of the first phase of 969 homes for Cambourne West.

In addition to 2,350 homes, Cambourne West, which is a joint venture between Taylor Wimpey and Bovis Homes, will also include two new primary schools and a secondary school, a community space and sports facilities, along with new roads and business and green space.

No date has yet been set to decide the reserved matters planning applications.

A spokesperson from Taylor Wimpey said: “We are confident that we have submitted two, high-quality, reserved matters applications to South Cambridgeshire District Council for 190 and 286 new homes at Cambourne West.

“Our plans have been carefully considered and developed in consultation with the local authority and presented to the town council.

“The applications are part of a wider scheme which will bring forward community benefits including new schools, a community building, sports fields, retail opportunities and public open space.”
