Love's Farm Eastern Expansion
Gallagher Estates have submitted planning applications to Hunts District Council for Love's Farm Eastern Expansion and for the reserve site (the empty parcel of land in the south west of Love's Farm, to the west of Dramsell Rise).
Both applications are available for viewing on Hunts District Council's online planning portal

Search on the planning portal for case reference 1300388OUT. The main details can be found by going to "Documents and Plans" then "View associated documents". The best place to start is the document entitled "Planning Design and Access Statement Rev B" which is split into 3 parts.
The 'reserve site' is one of the last remaining parcels of undeveloped land on Love's Farm and is bordered by Cambridge Road, Dramsell Rise and the sewage pumping station.
The parcel was originally intended for office or commercial use, but no such use having been found, it has been turned over to residential development.
Outline application for the erection of 41 dwellings accessed from existing access from Dramsell Rise.
Search the online portal for case reference 1300389OUT. The main details can be found by going to "Documents and Plans" then "View associated documents" then look for the "Planning Design and Access Statement" which is a colour PDF brochure describing the development. There are plenty more pages of plans and designs if it takes your interest!
Please have your say!
Much of what I wrote about the Wintringham Park development
applies here too. Love's Farm East will be developed by Gallagher Estates, who have developed Love's Farm, so we have plenty of experience of how things might pan out over there! Do have a think about how this might affect you and our community and make your comments known via the planning portal. This is the best opportunity we have to make a difference.
