Allison Homes will be attending the next Eye Parish Council meeting on Thursday 18 January at 7pm in the Leeds Hall to discuss their proposals for the Eyebury Road development before submitting their reserved matters application. The reserved matters application include the specific details not covered in an approved outline planning application including access, building plans, landscaping and layout. Residents will be able to respond to each part of the plans as they are proposed for the site.
The Eyebury Road site was first put forward for development in the Peterborough Local Plan in 2019 and Outline planning permission was approved by Peterborough City Council in December 2023. House builder Larkfleet Homes has previously put forward plans for 280 homes despite an indicative 250 in the Local Plan. Attached to the development is policy LP40 which puts a number of conditions on the development before it can move forward.
Eye Parish Council has previously objected to this development since it was first included in the Local Plan. For reasons including:
- Eyebury Road is a busy ‘rat run’ passing the Primary School and goes into a single track
road to Eastern Industry where the large Red Brick Farm Development has recently been
approved and this will only add to the volume of traffic.
- Increase pollution and noise pollution from the proposed development next to our
primary school and in the centre of our village is of concern,
- Infrastructure within the village is overstretched already with villagers struggling to get
in and out due to the road system both on the A47 and the A1139.
- Doctors/dentists books at capacity, youth facilities and support over stretched.
- The drainage system throughout the village needs improvement.
And just to note between 2011 an 2021 the population of the parish grew from 4,340 to 5,409, an increase of 1,069 persons or 25.6%, more than any other village in the Peterborough area.
Allison Homes and Larkfleet Homes were purchased by US investment firm PIMCO in November 2021. Larkfleet Homes has since been been rebranded as Allison Homes. PIMCO itself is owned by Allianz SE, a large global financial services company based in Munich, Germany.
