Client: RLW Estates
LPA: South Cambridgeshire District Council

Boyer has secured a resolution to grant outline planning permission for a 4,500 home development at Waterbeach New Town East.  Achieved at South Cambridgeshire District Council’s Planning Committee on 29th January 2021, the application was submitted on behalf of RLW Estates.

The scheme will be developed alongside that previously consented at Waterbeach Barracks which combined will see the delivery of 11,000 new homes, with a range of associated community, employment, retail and recreational uses.
Boyer previously assisted RLW in securing full planning permission in January 2020 for relocation of Waterbeach Rail Station to the New Town, identified as a key requirement of the Local Plan allocation and subsequent Waterbeach New Town Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

Boyer has had a lengthy association with this project, spanning promotion through the Structure Plan, Regional Spatial Strategy and the Local Plan, and continue to be involved in Section 106 negotiations.
