Building on the successful promotion and development of our Loves Farm site at St Neots, we promoted, and ultimately secured planning, on a further 100 acres of land, for a 1,020 unit expansion to Loves Farm.
The site is very well situated in respect to transport links, being within walking distance of the rail station providing direct services to London. As part of the original Loves Farm development, L&Q Estates instigated improvements to the railway station including allowing direct access from the development. Also within Phase 1, we delivered the relocation of St Neots Town Football club to a new high quality stadium with enviable practise facilities. The club offers a variety of community facilities which, when combined with the new primary school and local centre, offers a real heart to the emerging community.
Being able to evidence real examples of the delivery of social infrastructure put us in good stead for the development of Phase 2 and having secured a planning consent in 2019, we are currently undertaking extensive ground and archaeological investigations prior to servicing the site.
Immediately to the south of the development another major sustainable urban extension is underway and through collaborative working a number of cost share initiatives are in place which benefit both developments.
