Catesby Estates is pleased to announce outline planning permission has been granted for 40 houses on a 4.5 acre greenfield site off Sand Road in Great Gransden by Huntingdonshire District Council.

Since 2011 only 7 new homes have been granted planning permission in Great Gransden, with the average price of a home being £540,350, which is almost double the UK average.

The site will deliver 40% affordable housing together with new public open space and a series of highway improvements to the wider area.  Including footpath links and increased junction visibility helping ensure the safety of children walking to and from the local school.

Ed Barrett, Senior Planning Manager for Catesby Estates said; “Our carefully designed scheme is sensitive to it surrounds, and was judged to represent sustainable development by the Local Planning Authority.” 

“This scheme will provide additional support for the rural economy, as well as helping more families and young people to remain within or move into the community, as well as offering opportunities for those downsizing.”

A housebuilder is expected to be onsite early next year with first residents taking occupation late 2020/early 2021.
