The site extends to approximately 18 hectares/ 45 acres and provides an excellent opportunity to deliver high quality open market and affordable homes. The site is located outside the Green Belt and is in a highly sustainable location and can easily integrate into the existing urban form of Royston. There are well established public footpath links through the site that provide opportunities to access facilities and services of Royston including schools and community uses.
The site is currently undeveloped agricultural land and is adjacent to the southern extent of the built-up area of Royston. It is bound by residential properties to the north, Barkway Road to the east, Flint Hall farm to the south and grassland to the west. There is a tree belt that runs north to south through the central section of the site and it benefits from well-established boundary treatment that offers a good level of natural screening.
