Name announced for 680-home Littleport development
28 Sep 2021
A flagship development which is set to create a new 680-home community in Littleport has been named Quantum Fields. The project, which has been earmarked for a 70-acre site off Grange Lane, is a joint venture by Vistry Group and Evera Homes. The name of the development takes its inspiration from Quantum Field Theory, a 20th Century theory relating to how different particles interact to make up the building blocks of matter. Vistry Group, which comprises Bovis Homes, Linden Homes and Vistry Partnerships, and Evera Homes, formed of the housing associations Cross Keys Homes, Longhurst, Hyde and Flagship Group, chose the name to reflect the unity and sense of community they hope to create within the new development. As well as up to 680 new homes, Quantum Fields will also provide a community hall, public open space, community orchard and retail units. Emma Fletcher, managing director of Evera Homes, said: “Quantum Fields are the building blocks for everything in life, and the theory refers to the bringing together of two scientific concepts that merge to become a whole new entity. This perfectly describes our joint venture with Vistry and is why we are so excited to be bringing forward Quantum Fields together. “At Evera, we have a strong desire to see a sense of community built into developments from the start, with a keen eye on sustainability and ensuring low running costs for customers. Together with access to green spaces and policy compliant affordable housing levels, we want to change the way large scale developments are delivered. “Vistry brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the development sector to the scheme, and together we have a host of skills and knowledge to deliver excellent-quality homes in one of East Cambridgeshire’s most popular villages.” Outline planning permission has already been granted for the development. If detailed plans are approved, Quantum Fields will comprise a variety of two, three and four-bedroom houses built under the Bovis Homes and Linden Homes brands. Nic Chapman, sales and marketing director at Vistry East Midlands, said: “Quantum Fields is the perfect name for this flagship development, as it not only symbolises the building blocks of a new community, but also represents this new joint venture between Vistry Group and Evera Homes to deliver this exciting new housing project. “Quantum Fields will be a dual-branded development offering a mix of both Bovis Home and Linden Homes house types, which will ensure variety and choice for homebuyers. “If detailed plans are approved, we hope to start construction work by the end of this year with a view to welcoming the first residents into their new homes at the beginning of 2022.” For more information about Bovis Homes and Linden Homes developments in Cambridgeshire, visit bovishomes.co.uk and lindenhomes.co.uk/eastmidlands.
