Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council have approved plans for a further 210 houses at Darwin Green One.

Outline approval was given for the wider Darwin Green site in 2015 for up to 1,593 homes, as well as a new primary school, community facilities and shops.

The latest detailed application, submitted by Barratt David Wilson Homes Cambridgeshire for land between Huntingdon Road and Histon Road, is the final phase of the residential part of the development.

Of the 210 homes in BDW3, 126 are proposed to be made available for market sale, with 63 designated for social rent, and 21 for shared ownership.

The homes are planned to be a mix of one-bedroom flats up to four-bedroom houses, all with the ability to have air source heat pumps installed.

The 210 homes will be located eastern side of Darwin Green, sitting between the existing residential area and the proposed new Central Park.

The plans were unanimously approved.
