SOUTH Cambridgeshire's latest development could soon expand if planning permission is granted for 425 new homes to be built.
The new homes, planned for Cambourne, would be built on 10 hectares of land in Upper Cambourne to the north and south of Lancaster Way, the new road to The Vine Inter-Church Primary School.
The housing is part of phase six of the Upper Cambourne development and will include a range of one and two bedroom dwellings, varying in type and affordability.
In October, government inspectors ruled that Cambourne could grow to 4,000 dwellings, which is 700 more than there is currently planning permission for.

A spokesperson for Cambourne Parish Council said they would support the plans "in general but would ask that the plans be checked to ensure accuracy of features and that the extent of hard surfacing be reviewed as softer treatment would be more appropriate to differentiate between highway, parking and community area."
SCDC Environmental Health asked inspectors to take note of noise implications of the roads and Bourn Airfield at the time the application is made.
A planning application is expected to be submitted in the New Year.
