Catesby Estates have submitted outline plans for the construction of up to 44 new homes on 6 acres of land known as Wellington Gardens, Off Main Street, Witchford in Cambridgeshire.

The outline planning application includes 30% affordable housing, local area of play (LAP) and improved footpath links.

Dawn Adams, Planning Manager for Catesby Estates said “The East Cambridgeshire adopted Local Plan identifies Witchford as a ‘larger village’ (tier 2) with a good range of services and suitable to accommodate housing growth.”

“We have worked with Witchford Parish Council to deliver a sensitively designed scheme, incorporating increased landscaping, relocation of the play area to integrate it further into the development and reducing the number of homes and increasing the boundary lines between the new and existing properties.” 

The application will undergo a statutory consultation period, where anyone who wishes to make their views known on the development can submit their comments to East Cambridgeshire District Council .

Should the application be approved, Catesby will then work with housebuilders to deliver a range of new homes, with first residents taking occupation early 2021.
