St Neot's public green
Homebuilder Durkan has exchanged contracts for a 14.37 acre site at Wintringham, St Neots.

The new site will form an important part of Wintringham; a major new development brought forward by master developer Urban&Civic. Durkan’s parcel of land is located adjacent to the first school on the development and a landscaped civic square.

In total, Durkan will provide 285 high quality new homes, 85 of which will be affordable.

Urban&Civic has designed Wintringham to provide attractive spaces and important amenities for residents, and it is set to become a key part of St Neots’ eastern expansion. It will also deliver vital infrastructure upgrades to serve homes and businesses in the area.

Commenting, Bill Beyzade, Managing Director, Durkan, said:

“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work with Urban & Civic as part of the vital new Wintringham development. Durkan has always prided itself on building homes of the highest quality supported by exemplary customer service. We will bring that focus to Wintringham, working to provide the best possible environment for new residents and the wider area to enjoy community life.”

Tim Leathes, Development Director for Urban&Civic, added:

“Quality of design and delivery and a commitment to working with communities and customers is at the heart of our vision for Wintringham, and Durkan are a great addition to the development. They will be taking forward a key gateway parcel, which complements the heart of the community with the school and civic square and sits opposite the business area, which is a key part of St Neots growth plans. We look forward to continuing work with them to bring forward a great place for people to work and live.”

Durkan will submit a detailed planning application in the coming months, with the aim of starting work on site later this year.
