The housebuilder is to submit plans later this year for 107 new homes at the North West Cambridge Development

North West Cambridge Development - Hill second phase

Hill has unveiled a £60m, second phase plan for 107 new apartments at the University of Cambridge’s North West Cambridge Development that will in total create 3,000 new homes.

The proposed scheme, designed by Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects, will see the homes built on the site’s main thoroughfare, Eddington Avenue, overlooking Storey’s Field cricket pitch and parklands.

The housebuilder previously received planning approval for 240 new homes at the project last year.

A planning application is expected to be submitted later this year with construction to begin in summer 2017.

The development will be overseen by Hill’s new regional director David Eardley, who was appointed by the firm last Deecember to oversee the housebuilder’s major residential projects.
