A new housing development in a Cambridgeshire village designed to ‘conserve and enhance wildlife’ has been approved by planners.
The Little Thetford site, named Cawdle Meadows, spans three acres and will feature two bungalows and a mix of four- and five-bedroom family homes with double garages and gardens.
The homes, which will be available over New Years, have been designed to face the open green space that will feature bark mulch paths and native trees, with the addition of insect hotels, log piles and bird and bat nesting boxes to encourage wildlife.
The Annington developers say the shrubs and plants will be selected to attract bees and butterflies and the front gardens will be “planted to encourage pollinating insects and provide seasonal color.”
There will be five different house designs on site, in a mix of cream and red bricks, to keep the neighborhood “interesting and to reflect the variety of local Little Thetford homes”.
