The story so far
Wintringham is located on the eastern edge of St Neots, approximately 1.5 miles (2.5 km) to the east of the town centre. The site is currently agricultural land, with the new development of Loves Farm immediately to its north.
The site has been an established location for growth since 2009, as set out in a number of strategic planning documents, including:
The Previous Application (2013)
An Outline Planning Application for the development of a mixed use urban extension to include 2,800 dwellings and up to 63,500sqm of employment was submitted to Huntingdonshire District Council on 14 February 2013 by the Wintringham Park Consortium. The application was refused and subsequently appealed. The appeal was withdrawn in May 2017 and the consortium disbanded. Since that time, Urban&Civic has bought into the landowning partnership alongside long term owners, the Nuffield Trusts and been appointed Development Manager. The new design team has worked through the various issues identified during the planning process to date and developed fresh proposals in discussion with key partners and stakeholders that set out an ambitious vision for Wintringham and an aspirational eastern gateway for the town.
