With the help of Mumford & Wood’s windows and doors, a former paddock in the village of Cheveley has now been developed into a range of new, sympathetically designed homes.
Lead Architect, Tony Welland from The Design Partnership (ELY) Ltd, comments "There were many objections to overcome in our planning application due to a perceived loss of horse racing land, which is very protected in the area". Mr Welland then goes on to say "In our application, we showed the quality of our design and materials to be used with natural slate and tiles together with windows and doors from Mumford & Wood".
The Design Partnership has a long-standing working relationship with Mumford & Wood, spanning the last 2 decades. Mr Welland comments "We have been using Mumford & Wood for at least the last 20 years. We know the quality of the finished product very well and were keen to use them again for the Paddocks".
All of the houses feature a diverse range of Mumford & Wood’s windows and doors, including entrance doors, sash windows, casement windows and bi-fold doors. Due to the range of properties on the development, all have been given a unique finish to suit the individual architecture of each property.
Lightdoor, the developers of the site, had a desire to provide affordable housing for local people. As such, six of the homes on the Paddock development are available for either rent or shared ownership through the Cambridge Housing Association, with the rest available for private purchase.
