Accent were pleased to have worked closely with our lead developer Hill to successfully obtain planning permission in December 2018. The projected started on site in March 2019.
Fulbourn is a very attractive village with a lively community. Following a housing needs survey carried out in 2015 and published in 2016, there was strong support for the provision of a small development of affordable houses.
The Parish Council and the Fulbourn Branch of the Royal British Legion chose the road name. It was selected to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and in remembrance of all those who lost their lives in the conflict.
The first residents were welcomed in time for Christmas 2019 with the remaining properties handed over in early 2020.
The development was part funded through a grant allocation from Homes England, and in conjunction with South Cambridgeshire District Council, the properties were prioritised for applicants with a local connection to Fulbourn, either by living, working, or having close family relatives in the area.
The design of the homes took a fabric first approach to energy saving by using high performing insulations, along with other features including PV Panels, vehicle charging points, and two x 300w solar panels on each of the homes, for producing electricity for the homeowner to use or provide any surplus back into the national grid. The inclusion of the energy-saving features supports South Cambridgeshire District Councils commitment to being green to the core.
In April 2020, Inside Housing magazine awarded Armistice Close the title of Development of the week.
