There will be eight residential and non-residential reserved matters applications for the Cherry Hinton North development, alongside two separate applications for primary and secondary schools. The first of these was an infrastructure application which covered the whole site. The team are now moving forward with reserved matters applications for the first phase of development on the site which can be seen in the image below in the context of wider masterplan with key connections to the wider area.
Reserved matters application
As part of the first phase of development, two reserved matters applications are being submitted. As part of these applications, we are bringing forward 354 new homes, including much needed affordable homes, alongside landscaping and open space. A further application will feature a sales and marketing arena which will include show homes for prospective buyers.
