Plans for 3,500 homes and three new schools for phase two of the proposed Northstowe new town in Cambridgeshire have been submitted.

Eventually up to 10,000 homes are planned on the former RAF Oakington site, making it the biggest new town in Britain since Milton Keynes.

The submission of the outline planning application by developer Gallagher and the Home and Communities Agency for the second major phase follows a start on preparatory works for the first phase of the vast project.

Paul Kitson, Senior Project Manager at the HCA for Northstowe said: “Things are definitely happening at Northstowe.

“We have adopted a ‘phased’ approach to development where facilities and road improvements are built hand-in-hand at each stage with new homes.

“The outline plans submitted today are further proof of that and, if approved, we look forward to working with local communities to develop further details to these outline plans.”

Preparatory work has recently started at Northstowe for the first primary school and first phase of new homes.  Gallagher Estates are responsible for the first phase of development at Northstowe.

Alan Joyner, executive director of Gallagher Estates said: “This planning application complements phase one and we are pleased that it includes the secondary school, additional primary schools, town centre, sports and community facilities which will create the next stage of a comprehensive overall development for a thriving new community.”
