McBains has secured planning approval with Barratt & David Wilson Homes, for 336 new dwellings at Wintringham Park, a new sustainable urban extension development to the east of St Neots in Cambridgeshire.
Wintringham already benefits from a striking new primary school, which will be complemented by the new development of townhouses, larger detached family houses and apartments arranged around a series of green spaces and corridors. The development provides a mix of 269 market and 67 affordable homes.
Wintringham Park forms part of the St Neots Eastern Expansion Area, a sustainable urban extension development area covering 227 hectares of greenfield land to the east of the town, comprising a total of 3500 new dwellings, community facilities and services including schools, shops, recreation areas and open space.
McBains provided master planning and urban design services for Wintringham Park.
Peter O’Rourke, Director of Housing and Masterplanning at McBains, said:
“The overall layout has been designed to encourage safe walking and cycling, with easy access to green spaces including a linear park and pocket park.
“Our urban designers and master planners developed the proposals in liaison with Urban & Civic, the wider development’s master developers, to seek a cohesive approach and rigorous interpretation of the Design Code ensuring that a high-quality design and strong sense of place is achieved.”
