Financial Viability Assessments
Godwin Developments, advised by Rapleys Planning and Viability teams, have secured planning permission for one of Cambridgeshire’s first single family housing developments, comprising 78 houses and flexible commercial space.
The housing development includes two and three-bedroom houses with private gardens or terraces, as well as 85 resident and guest parking spaces. Devised specifically for the single-family rental market, the homes will be delivered using modular methods of construction, resulting in a range of benefits for residents, the neighbouring community and the environment.
Cathedral Green, as it will be known, will have substantial ESG credentials including high levels of insulation, triple glazing as well as natural and extract ventilation. Combined, these features will significantly improve the energy efficiency of the homes – compared to traditional construction – helping to lower bills for residents and reduce the environmental impact of the scheme. Sustainability will also be supported through the inclusion of two cycle spaces per home as well as EV-ready charging for all homes.
Rapleys LLP sold the former Westmill Food Site, Ely to Godwin Developments for Build to Rent (BtR) single family housing rental development.
