Hayfield has submitted a Reserved Matters Planning Application to South Cambridgeshire District Council for Hayfield Lodge, a 44-home development in Over, Cambridgeshire.

The 7-acre site was purchased from Abbey Properties Cambridgeshire Limited with an Outline consent in place.

Hayfield has worked with architectural practice Woods Hardwick to submit a detailed scheme for the 44 new homes and a full-size football pitch, which addresses the local needs of the village for enhanced formal sports provision, following engagement with Over Parish Council.

The plans for the scheme feature a range of maisonettes, and two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom bungalows and houses.

A total of 18 of the plots have been designated for affordable housing.

Andy Morris, managing director of Hayfield said: “Following on from the success of Hayfield Avenue in nearby Great Gransden, which has recently been completed, we have actively targeted Cambridgeshire for further development opportunities. While Hayfield Avenue benefits from air source heat pumps, we will be introducing our zero carbon ready specification to this newly acquired site, ensuring the homes benefit from the highest EPC rating of A. This will enable future residents to significantly lower their carbon footprint and household energy usage.

“We have recently prepared a Reserved Matters Application, which has been submitted to South Cambridgeshire District Council. Subject to planning approval, we propose constructing the mixture of 44 single-storey and two-storey homes in red and buff brick, to ensure this new development effortlessly blends into this semi-rural traditional village. The £20m Hayfield Lodge scheme will create and safeguard local jobs throughout the construction programme.”
