The proposed development, covering an area of approximately 1.3 hectare (TL 4671 5588), lies to the west of Hills Road, a major arterial route into Cambridge. The development involves construction of houses and related services by Berkeley Homes (Eastern) Limited. The site lies in an area of potentially rich archaeological remains. There are prehistoric and Roman remains in the vicinity but nothing is known from the site itself. The site appears to have been agricultural over the last two centuries and was developed in the early part of the twentieth century. Apart from a few structures in the northern part of the site there does not appear to have been any development during the the past century and recently it has been gardens and playing fields. The evidence of past activity in the area and the lack of recent development implies a high potential for preservation of any remains on the site.
