Cheffins has launched three new land sites in Cambridgeshire onto the market. Situated in Meldreth, Fordham and Sutton, the sites could deliver 123 new homes in prime, edge of village locations.
These sites offer housebuilders the chance to secure development land in an area with an acute shortage of new housing stock.
The largest site is 7.7 acres in Sutton, near Ely, with planning consent for 53 new homes on the south-eastern edge of the village. It currently comprises linear agricultural fields. Sutton is designated as a Large Village by the District Council under the East Cambridgeshire Local Plan and has a wide range of services and sporting facilities (£1,900,000).
In Fordham, Cheffins is offering a 5.5 acre site with planning consent for 52 new homes. The greenfield site is currently an arable field and paddocks (£2,000,000).
The land in Meldreth has planning permission for 18 homes on a three-acre site. The site is located on the western edge of the village and is currently an area of undeveloped land with direct vehicle access (£1,950,000).
Maxwell Fahie, Associate at Cheffins said, “These three sites offer both local and national housebuilders the opportunity to secure strategic development land in a region of the UK which is currently suffering from an acute shortage of new housing stock. Both East Cambridgeshire and South Cambridgeshire are struggling with the delivery of new homes, compounded by affordability issues, and these sites allow developers to build out and sell on within popular locations which are witnessing a strong level of demand.”
