A housing developer is seeking feedback on a proposal to build almost 90 new homes in Fenstanton.
Bedfordshire-based Kier Living is holding an open meeting on February 15 where plans to build dozens of new homes off Cambridge Road will be unveiled.
The area of land subject of the proposal, which measures about 10 acres in size, has already been identified by Huntingdonshire District Council as suitable for housing in its long-term local plan.
According to Kier, initial investigations suggest the site could accommodate 89 new homes along with landscaping and open space.
Barford + Co, the agents acting for Kier, said: “The new development would be comprised of a mix of house types and sizes including affordable homes, retention of the existing pond and would include pedestrian and cycle routes to link to existing networks. There would also be provision of a new access from Cambridge Road.
“A number of studies have been commissioned looking at the issues of archaeology, transport, noise impact, air quality and ecology. Together with technical aspects, it is appreciated that local knowledge of the site and the surrounding areas are important aspects in shaping the development and how it can be designed and integrated into Fenstanton.”
The open meeting is taking place from 4-7.30pm at Fenstanton and Hilton Primary School, in School Lane, Fenstanton.
