A development which is set to create a new 680 home community in Littleport has been named Quantum Fields. 

The name of the development takes its inspiration from Quantum Field Theory, a 20th century theory relating to how different particles interact to make up the building blocks of matter. 

The project, which has been assigned for a 70-acre site off Grange Lane, is a joint venture by Vistry Group and Evera Homes. 

Managing Director of Evera Homes, Emma Fletcher, said: “Quantum Fields are the building blocks for everything in life. 

“The theory refers to the bringing together of two scientific concepts that merge to become a whole new unity.

“Together, we have a host of skills and knowledge to deliver excellent quality homes in one of East Cambridgeshire's most popular villages.” 

The group chose the name Quantum Fields to reflect the unity and sense of community they hope to create within the new development. 

As well as up to 680 new homes, Quantum Fields will also provide a community hall, public open space, community orchards and retail units. 

Nic Chapman, sales and marketing director at Vistry East Midlands, said: “Quantum Fields will be a dual-branded development offering a mix of both Bovis Homes and Linden Homes house types. 

“This will ensure variety and choice for homebuyers.
