Description The subject property extends to an area of approximately 0.91 hectares (2.25 acres) and comprises a brownfield site. The site is currently overgrown by tall and dense vegetation and occupied by three pairs of semi derelict prefabricated bungalows which are located to the north of the site.

The eastern boundary of the site is separated from Little Green carriageway by a mature hedge and partially filled drainage ditch. There is an existing residential dwelling beyond the southern boundary of the site. To the north west, the site is bounded by an existing residential dwelling known as No.7 Home Office Bungalows. There is a surfaced vehicular access way which provides access to the semi derelict bungalows and on to No.7 Home Office Bungalows to the west of the site. The site is screened from horse paddocks to the south west by a substantial hedgerow. The northern boundary is adjacent to a group of commercial buildings with car parking.

Planning Resolution to grant planning permission under delegated powers (ref: 19/00767/OUM) was approved by East Cambridgeshire District Council for the residential development of circa 22 dwellings following the demolition of 6 bungalows with all matters reserved except access.

Cheffins Planning Department advised the landowner on the application and would assume to be retained by the purchaser of the land for the Reserved Matters work.

The application proposes the erection of 22 dwellings, following the demolition of six existing bungalows, which will consist of 17 market dwellings and 5 affordable homes.
