Plans for a new development of 350 homes in Sawtry will be on display at a public exhibition on Monday.

Larkfleet Homes is launching a public consultation for its proposals for a development of approximately 350 new homes on land off Glatton Road, Sawtry.

The proposed development will include a mixture of one and two-storey properties ranging from one to four-bedroom homes and a number of bungalows. The properties will be designed to meet the needs of a range of people from first-time buyers to families.

The proposal also includes space for new community facilities as well as areas of public open space, including play areas for children.

Larkfleet is holding a public exhibition in the library at Sawtry Village Academy, in Fen Lane, on March 19, from 3pm till 7pm.

A letter has been distributed to nearby residents providing information about the proposals, along with details of the exhibition.

Members of the development project team will be on-hand at the exhibition to answer questions about the proposals. Feedback forms will also be available to allow people to leave their comments and ideas.

David Morris, senior land manager at Larkfleet Homes, said: "The new development in Sawtry would provide much-needed housing and space for new community facilities which will benefit new and existing residents.

"We are keen to work with the local community to try and help address existing issues such as constrained community facilities and provisions for the young community in Sawtry village. The opportunity for input from the local community is an important part of the planning process and I would like to encourage people to attend the public exhibition on 19 March where they can ask questions and provide us with their feedback."

The proposed plans are also available to view online at www.larkfleetplanning.co.uk/sawtry.
