The site is located next to a Grade II listed windmill. The application states that the new homes will not compromise the views towards the adjacent listed Windmill when viewed from the West or South; adding: “views towards the windmill across the proposed development will be glimpsed through trees as at present, but in a more visually pleasant context.”

Previous planning permission was granted for seven new homes but this has now lapsed.

The application states: “The proposed development will provide a high-quality residential development, which will add to the quality and choice available within this sustainable location in the village.

“The proposed layout and landscaping of the site has been designed so that the new dwellings will enhance the setting of the nearby Windmill.

“The application therefore represents growth that is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable.”

The application can be viewed on Peterborough City Council’s planning portal using reference 23/01028/FUL.
