RESIDENTS’ VIEWS SOUGHT ON PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT IN LITTLE PAXTON

 

Residents in Little Paxton are invited to air their views on a potential new residential development in the village with an opportunity to drop in and discuss the proposals on Monday 19th December, with St Neots planning consultancy Barford + Co leading the consultation process.

The drop in session will run between 4pm and 7.30pm at Little Paxton Village Hall.

The proposed site for the development lies between the Great North Road, St Neots Golf Club and the development at Samuel Jones Crescent, and already has planning permission for residential and business use.

Investigations by Barford + Co suggest that the site could accommodate approximately 200 new homes along with 75,000 sq ft of office space and associated highway access, landscaping and open space.

The development will include a mix of house types including affordable homes, areas for play equipment, pedestrian and cycle routes to link to existing networks, and two new access roads from the Great North Road.

Simon Tindle is Senior Planner at Barford + Co and will be present at the meeting on 19th December to answer residents’ queries, he said: “As many residents in Huntingdonshire will be aware, there is an urgent need for new housing in the county due to an ageing and increasing population, and an increasing number of smaller households.

“The site at Little Paxton and the proposed residential development will go some way to meeting this need and provide people in Huntingdonshire with much-needed new homes through a variety of house types and sizes.

“As well as new homes the developers are proposing business space, which will serve to create jobs for the local economy.

“On behalf of the land owners, Barford + Co is inviting residents of Little Paxton to share their views and observations on the initial ideas and offer suggestions how we could shape the development in response to local issues.”

Those unable to attend the drop in session can also give their views by emailing riversfield@barfords.co.uk.
