The proposed development, covering an area of approximately 5.53ha (TL 2102/6350), lies to the south of London Lane in the village of Great Paxton, Cambridgeshire. The proposed development involves construction of houses and related services by Persimmon Homes (East Midlands) Limited. The site lies in an area of potentially rich archaeological remains. There are Roman, Anglo-Saxon and medieval 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 remains so. Apart from a few structures added along the south side of London Lane, there does not appear to have been any development during the past century. The evidence of past activity to the north and west and the lack of recent development implies a high potential for preservation of any remains on the site.
