Scheme designed by JTP

Outline planning approval is expected to be given to Kennett Garden Village, a development that will see 500 homes built in east Cambridgeshire.

A resolution to grant outline planning was given to the JTP-designed scheme, a community-led initiative by the Kennett Community Land Trust being built on a 40ha site owned by a local farming family.

It was commissioned by Palace Green Homes, an arm’s-length company set up by East Cambridgeshire council.

The development near Newmarket will feature 150 homes for affordable rent and shared ownership. There will also be 25 self-build homes on the scheme.
