Lovell and Clarion Housing Group are aiming to build 10 one and two-bedroom maisonettes and 35 two to three-bedroom detached, semi-detached and terraced houses on Sutton Road in Witchford.

The site, which will consist of both shared ownership and rented properties, plans to welcome the first residents during the summer in two years’ time.

Simon Medler, regional managing director at Lovell, said: “We’re looking forward to using our experience on this project, which will increase the supply of new homes locally, as well as boosting the economy and surrounding communities.”
