Plans to build a new Fenland village and take forward the second phase of a new town in Cambridgeshire have been approved.

South Cambridgeshire District Council has approved plans for Inholm, one of the UK’s largest modular neighbourhoods.

The second phase of a new town called Northstowe, which will comprise 10,000 homes, has also been given the green light.

The schemes are being delivered by House by Urban Splash, a new company backed by Urban Splash, Homes England and Japan’s biggest house builder, Sekisui House.

Stephen Kinsella, chief land and development officer at Homes England, said: ‘I’m delighted that planning permission has been granted for the first homes to be built on Homes England land at Northstowe, which is a significant step forward for the new town and an important milestone for our joint venture with Urban Splash and Sekisui House.

‘This is a really ambitious proposal for 406 homes using modern methods of construction, and the quality design of these homes really reflects our ambition to deliver outstanding places.’
