A 32 acre site on the edge of the village of Dullingham in East Cambridgeshire, located 18 km east of Cambridge and 6 km south of Newmarket. The site is situated between the village and Dullingham Station. Regular rail services provides access to central Cambridge within 18 minutes.
The sites proximity to the railway station provides an opportunity to create a new sustainable community. A scheme for 160 high quality homes, improved access to the station with a station hub including employment space, a safe and well-lit cycle and pedestrian route between Dullingham village and the station and parkland with children’s play spaces is currently proposed. Housing, much needed in the East Cambridgeshire area, will be provided at a relatively low density, together with policy compliant affordable housing to meet local need. Accessibility to the railway station will be improved with a new access road and drop off & pick up area. The parkland will create a buffer between the new hamlet and the historic village, whilst providing significant open space and bio-diversity improvements.
Public consultation commenced on the 7th January 2021 for two weeks. An outline planning application has been submitted.
