Laytons helps to secure another 2,350 homes at Cambourne New Town, Cambridgeshire

Planning permission has been granted to Taylor Wimpey UK Limited, and Bovis Homes Limited, for a further 2,350 new homes, comprising an extension of Cambourne New Town in Cambridgeshire.  Laytons acted in relation to the completion of an agreement under section 106 of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990 (commonly called a Section 106 Agreement) which was needed before the planning permission could be issued.  

In addition to the new homes, there are going to be a number of community facilities provided including a new secondary school, two new primary schools, sports and recreation facilities and a package of contributions towards highway improvements in the vicinity and enhanced public transport services.

Laytons have acted as project solicitors to Cambourne New Town since 1994, including the acquisition of the original land for the first phase of the new town, dividing the land between the developer parties within the consortium, the sale of a supermarket site, hotel and other land for commercial use, transfer of land for the community facilities, and the grant of planning permission for a first extension of the original 3,300 dwelling scheme to provide another 950 units in 2011.
