Laragh Partnerships are extremely pleased to announce that they, in partnership with Peterhouse, Cambridge and Stretham and Wilburton Community Land Trust, are to develop a new community led development at Stretham, 9 miles north of Cambridge. Foundation East have been helping to advise the CLT and have organized consultations, as well as also assisting with the Local Plan Policy and liaising with East Cambridgeshire District Council.
The new scheme will comprise of approximately 50 dwellings to include 30% affordable housing, with a mix of 2, 3 4 and 5 bedroom properties. The community will also include a doctors surgery, and small business units which will in turn create jobs for local people. There has been a focus on providing plenty of open space including a village green at the heart of the site, as well as footpaths, cycle routes and bridleways.
In designing the scheme, the local community’s wishes have been carefully considered and taken into account including the consideration of vehicular traffic, and the inclusion of tree-lined streets and a rural landscape. The house types are varied and will be built to a high standard, as well as conforming to Sustainable Code Level 4, being energy efficient eco-friendly.
The project is due to commence construction in 2014.
