We are proposing a sustainable expansion of Peterborough at Great Haddon. Our current proposal includes:
Up to 5,350 new homes, with a range of house styles, sizes and tenures. A proportion of homes will be affordable, either as socially rented, shared ownership or homes for specific sectors of the population.
A range of strategic and smaller scale employment in the north of the area, providing local and strategic employment opportunities and reserving sites to support the emerging cluster of environmental industries in Peterborough.
A district centre with new shops, cafes and restaurants, offices, workshops, health and community facilities.
Three main residential neighbourhoods served by local facilities and primary schools.
A new secondary school.
Extensive sports facilities and sports pitches.
An extensive open space network providing nature conservation and recreation opportunities.
The Great Haddon development site lies within Peterborough district. The area was identified as one option for strategic development in a series of sub-regional studies undertaken in 2004.
Great Haddon is allocated as a sustainable urban extension in the most recent local planning document prepared by Peterborough City Council, the Peterborough Local Development Framework Core Strategy adopted in February 2011, and in Site Allocations Development Plan Document adopted in April 2012.
Great Haddon covers a large area and can comfortably accommodate the number of homes we are proposing as well as significant land for new employment development, parkland and woodland. Allocating this number of homes in one location also makes it possible to properly support new facilities including a new secondary school.
Great Haddon will provide a variety of homes to meet a wide range of people’s aspirations and needs. It will include executive homes, family homes, apartments, retirement homes and homes for those with disabilities as well as starter homes for young families.
A proportion of the new homes will be affordable housing. The details of the number and type of affordable homes will be agreed with the relevant authorities as part of the negotiation on the Core Area outline planning application.
