This Land™ hosted a community event to showcase its reserved matters planning application for Eddeva Park, a high-quality residential development on the south-east fringes of Cambridge.
Cambridge City Council has already granted outline planning permission for the building of 230 homes at the site, which sits in a sustainable location between Worts’ Causeway and the Babraham Road. The community event, which took place at Queen Edith Chapel, Wulfstan Way, Cambridge was an opportunity for members of the public to view plans for the first development phase of the Eddeva Park development. This first phase is a proposal for 80 beautifully designed family homes, 40% of which will be affordable housing to meet local demand and needs.
David Lewis, Acting CEO, at This Land™ said: “The community event presented a wonderful opportunity for members of the public to view our plans for Eddeva Park, which have already been welcomed by Cambridge City Council. With this development we aim to create the ultimate living space by providing stunning homes and instilling a sense of community and identity within a semi-rural setting.”
The 80 proposed dwellings will comprise a variety of one-bedroom apartments through to five-bedroom detached houses. Rooftop and first floor terraces and balconies are proposed for a number of properties whilst homes in certain locations will feature solar shading canopies in-keeping with the scheme’s modern building design.
As well as 80 homes, a mix of beautifully appointed green, ecological and community grounds are included as part of Eddeva Park’s design landscape. A new community centre, and a community greenhouse centre are planned, with the development’s acres of green spaces meeting the needs of individuals seeking quiet escape in tranquil greenery, or groups looking to gather, socialise and play safely in surroundings that include meadow mazes, sunflower fields and the very best nature has to offer. Enjoying superb connections to the city of Cambridge, Eddeva Park is expected to achieve a 40% reduction in CO2 emissions over the Target Emission Rate (TER) outlined in Part L1A 2013 of the Building Regulations.
David Lewis at This Land™ continued: “We hope to take the public on our journey to delivering this incredibly exciting project. We therefore welcome their views on the reserved matters plan being presented. This is a chance for members of the public to forward ideas that could help shape Eddeva Park’s future.”
