Introduction

This website will provide you with further information about the proposals and enable you to Have Your Say using the survey available here.

About the project

Turnstone is proposing to create a sustainable hamlet of 150 high-quality, low density homes located next to Dullingham Station.

Sixty of the homes will be affordable, ensuring that local people will have the opportunity to stay within their community.

Separating the proposals from the existing Village will be a new parkland open space, protecting the historic setting of Dullingham, while providing amenity green space and promoting biodiversity. We have ensured that sustainability is at the heart of our proposals, and you can read more about our plans in the section below.

Three separate children’s play spaces will be provided, as well as a safe, well-lit, off-road green link, connecting Dullingham Village with the Railway Station.

We will create a new transport hub at the station, providing additional cycling and car parking spaces, including electric charging points for commuters, alongside enhanced pick-up and drop-off facilities.

A new Square will provide a station destination, around which office and employment space for local businesses will be created.

Have Your Say

Turnstone is keen to hear the opinions of the local community prior to submitting a planning application to East Cambridgeshire District Council.

If having looked at the exhibition material you would like to share your views then please do so using the online survey, which also provides the opportunity for you to send in comments.

Live Webinar

As part of our consultation with the local community we hosted a live webinar where residents were able to meet the project team, hear more about the scheme and ask any questions that they had.

The webinar will took place on Thursday 14th January at 6pm.

If you were unable to join the webinar, please find below a recording.

Sustainability and Landscape

We share East Cambridgeshire District Council's commitment to tackling climate change and achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, which is why we are committed to creating a sustainable development. With a positive approach to water management, energy consumption and ecology provision, we believe that this site can deliver on the council’s ambitions.

Located beside Dullingham Station, the site is strategically placed for sustainable travel to Cambridge and Newmarket. With the new green link providing a pedestrian and cycle route from Dullingham Village and additional cycle parking at the station, the development will create a new transport hub that is conveniently accessible to the local population while encouraging active and sustainable travel.

The new parkland open space will form a bridge of nature between the historic village of Dullingham and the new hamlet, with a wetland habitat created using surface water attenuation from the land to encourage wildlife into the area. The woodland around Todd’s Pond along the western perimeter of the site will also be extended to create a wooded skyline, preserving the landscape character of local area and enhancing the existing habitat.

In the residential areas of the development, the homes will be designed to ensure low running costs, health and wellbeing benefits and a reduced environmental footprint associated with living in the home. Each home will also benefit from a private garden and electric vehicle charging point. Sustainable drainage systems, including swales and attenuation basins, will also be incorporated into residential streets.
