DLP Planning Ltd (DLP) has secured reserved matters approval, on behalf of Metropolitan Housing Trust and Brampton Park Ltd, for a residential development of 210 dwellings on land at the former RAF Brampton, Huntingdonshire.
DLP had previously secured the ‘site wide’ outline permission on behalf of Brampton Park Ltd and continued the positive working relationship with Huntingdonshire Council with the submission of the first Reserved Matters application. This involved working closely with various officers in respect to urban design, heritage, landscape, drainage and highways matters, acting swiftly to shape the application to meet the high standards established within the site wide design code.
The development comprises a mix of house types, including a range of larger detached dwellings and provides the full complement of affordable housing for the wider site. The planning authority particularly welcomed the on-site provision of high quality tenure blind affordable housing, meeting an identified local need.
Due to the limited extent of planning conditions imposed, DLP Planning anticipates work commencing on the site as early as autumn 2016.
