Platform to work with Countryside Partnerships on new Haddon Cross scheme at Great Haddon, Peterborough

Platform Housing Group will work with Countryside Partnerships following an announcement granting planning consent for the first phase of Haddon Cross, a new development forming part of the Great Haddon sustainable urban extension to the southwest of Peterborough.

Affordable Homes

Of the 157 homes being delivered in the first phase, we will manage 79 affordable homes following a recently signed agreement. 25 affordable homes were required under the planning agreement, with the additional 54 being provided over and above this requirement.

Planning for the Future

The wider Great Haddon site has outline planning permission for up to 5,350 new homes, a district centre and two neighbourhood centres comprising retail, community and health, leisure, residential and commercial uses. The planning consent also includes provision for education facilities, sport and recreational facilities, strategic open space, landscaping, associated infrastructure and servicing.

Infrastructure works are already underway on the site and construction work on the new homes will start in the coming weeks.

Gerraint Oakley, Executive Director of Growth and Development at Platform Housing Group said: “We’re delighted to be part of this first phase of work that will bring much-needed affordable housing to this part of Peterborough. It’s great to be working alongside Countryside and the agreement is another great example of strong partnership work that will bring great benefits to the overall housing provision for the area. We look forward to being able to offer sustainable, energy efficient homes to our customers and to supporting the wider community to grow and flourish.”

Andy Reynolds, Managing Director, South East Midlands, Countryside Partnerships, said: “We are excited to have secured planning permission for Haddon Cross and to be working with Platform. There is a significant need for new, high-quality housing in this part of the East Midlands and this is a major step forward in meeting that demand. With homes at our Fletton Folly scheme already selling well as buyers relish the opportunity to live in modern homes and be part of the vibrant and well-connected new community at Great Haddon, we are pleased to be bringing forward the first phase of our second scheme within this new sustainable urban extension.”
