The London and Quadrant Housing Trust has lodged the application with Huntingdonshire District Council for 41 new homes to be situated north of Cambridge Road, in St Neots and they were approved on June 26.

The application was granted outline planning permission in January 2017 and now has full planning permission.

A planning statement submitted with the application said: "The site, at the junction of Dramsell Rise and Cambridge Road, provides an opportunity to complete the built form along Cambridge Road, complementing the existing buildings and creating a high quality scheme at the gateway to the Love's Farm development."

The area, which is about 2.5 acres, is located opposite the new Wintringham Park development, which is currently being built.
