Number of homes: 450
Commenced: Autumn 2020
Completion date: Spring 2029
Evera will deliver around 450 homes at RAF Upwood, a former RAF complex in Bury, 7 miles from Huntingdon.
The proposal is to develop the site in two phases with the land for the first 160 homes, which has the benefit of an outline planning consent, acquired in July 2019. A reserved matters application is being prepared for submission to Huntingdon DC following consultation with the Local and Parish Councils.
Contracts have exchanged to acquire the remaining land to deliver further housing with the purchase due to complete following the receipt of a full planning consent.
The development will deliver a wide range of house types and tenures set in a mature landscaped setting that further includes the retention and conversion of retained buildings particularly the guard house and former offices that mark the site entrance. The new homes will be complemented by the future provision of commercial space with consideration being given to retail and office uses.
