There will be 121 houses at the 11.5-acre Redland Grange site in Cottenham, with forty per cent of these being affordable.

The site will also boast a range of one to five-bedroom properties, with more than £1 million to be spent on infrastructure including education, transport and community facilities through Section 106 contributions.

Nick Phillips, director of construction firm Charles Church who is building the homes, said: "Whenever we start working within a community, we look at ways to support local people and deliver affordable homes.

"We are pleased to be creating jobs in construction and the supply chain which brings a boost to Cambridgeshire's economy and the region overall."

Nova Eames, sales director at Charles Church East Midlands, added: "Cottenham is a picturesque village full of amenities which create a fantastic rural lifestyle."
