A superbly located development site of about 0.5 acres / 0.2 hectares with outline consent for a pair of substantial new houses in south-facing plots backing on to fields.
The plot is located on Royston Road, opposite the turn to Church Lane towards Haslingfield.
There is currently a detached, two storey house of about 160sqm / 1740 sqft on the front of the plot and there is outline consent to create a new driveway access to the east of the house which will pass to the wider part of the land at rear to serve two new two-storey detached houses, each with a floor area of 300 square meters. Each house will have a plot of about 0.23 acres, plus the access driveway.
The new plots are particularly appealingly located, well back from the road, with excellent privacy and back on to open land. The land is level and clear of large trees and all mains services are available in the road.
The current consent requires demolition of the corner of the existing house to create the new driveway, but site measurements suggest that when applying for detailed consent it may be possible to retain the whole house and still provide the necessary width for access.

South Cambridgeshire District Council
Planning reference S/3027/17/OL was refused on the grounds of concerns from highways of vision splays. Following recent remodelling of Royston Road and the removal of a traffic island a new application was successful. With this principle established a detailed planning application is subject to only the usual conditions and reserved matters, details of which are available from the South Cambs web site:
