TateHindle bags planning for 229 homes in Cambridge

  • Comment

TateHindle has won planning consent for a 229-home project for Countryside Properties at Long Road, Clay Farm outside Cambridge

The scheme is part of the wider 2,300 home Great Kneighton development on the city’s southern fringe growth area between. Work will start on the scheme, which includes 40 per cent affordable housing, in May this year with the first homes set to complete in summer 2014.

According to the London-based practice, the scheme includes a range of homes from one, two and three bedroom flats together with two, three, four and five bedroom houses ‘set around new squares, courtyard and streets’.

Andrew Tate, director of architect TateHindle, said: ‘The desire to create an environmentally responsive solution in the form of architecture that is both rigorous and contextual has underpinned our approach throughout the design process. We have developed a high quality contemporary scheme where urban living meets Cambridgeshire countryside.’
