Work set to get underway on first homes at Northstowe new town

Construction work is about to begin on the first homes at the new town of Northstowe, after planning permission for 92 new homes was granted by South Cambridgeshire District Council.

Bloor Homes is planning to commence work onsite in the next few weeks, with building work on the first plots due to start in October. The first completions will see customers moving into their new homes in spring 2017.

The 92 homes will comprise a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties which are to be built on a 2.6 hectare site located to the north east of Longstanton, next to the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway. 
Access to the development will be provided from the B1050 Station Road and a number of new pedestrian links will be created from the site. 
The Bloor Homes development will form part of the first phase of Northstowe, which is planned to include up to 1,500 homes, a primary school, community building, shops, business premises, open space and sports facilities.
Monika Hanlon, Regional Sales Director for Bloor Eastern, said: “We are incredibly proud to be delivering the first homes at this exciting development, which will provide much-needed new housing and a range of community facilities in a sustainable location just five miles north west of Cambridge.
“Our development will consist of a range of high quality homes which have been carefully designed to create an attractive streetscene which reflects the character of the local area.
“The development has already generated huge interest among local residents and we look forward to starting construction work on the first homes next month and to welcoming visitors to the sales office from November.”
