Recreation and visitors - A space for Peterborough to breathe

The housing growth of the village will be managed across the plan period to ensure steady growth of around 10% in dwelling numbers through the plan period, allowing for a total of some 30 new dwellings by 2036. 

The Plan aims to protect and enhance the natural heritage around the village and to connect them more fully to the Nene Park Trust’s land to the south and land to the north of the Parish. The landscape features connections to a medieval pre-Enclosure England and Roman occupation. We aim to protect these heritage assets across the Parish.

Sustaining local businesses, local employment and improving local facilities remain key Plan priorities.

The Plan seeks to build on the long-standing traditions of the parish as a place for Peterborough people to visit and to enjoy the distinctive landscape, environment and wildlife and the heritage assets as well as for leisure and recreation.
