About The Project

As you may be aware, a planning application for the Soham Eastern Gateway was previously submitted by Cambridgeshire County Council in June 2017 and subsequently withdrawn in November 2017. This Land™ has been working on developing the Eastern Gateway area and consulting with the local community since February 2018, with an aim to submit a planning application to East Cambridgeshire District Council in spring 2019.

Soham Eastern Gateway is located to the east of Weatheralls Primary School, between the town and the A142 bypass, and between Qua Fen Common and East Fen Common. The area has been identified as an area for development in the 2010 Soham Vision and in the 2015 East Cambridgeshire Local Plan.

The planning application will include the majority of the development area, you can see the detailed map of the site allocation and planning application boundary (the area allowed for development according to Council policy) and planning application boundary below (the area that This Land™ is proposing for development).

The development will provide up to 575 dwellings, including affordable housing, as well as a new GP surgery, commercial spaces, a nursery, and open, green and play spaces for all Soham residents.

Upcoming Event



Second public exhibition
Friday 10 May 2019, 4pm-8pm | Saturday 11 May, 11am-3pm
Soham Comrades Club, Market Street, Soham CB7 5JG

We would like to invite all Soham residents to the second public exhibition on the Soham Eastern Gateway development, where you will be able to view and comment on the updated proposals that we will be submitting as part of our planning application this summer.


We will be presenting the updated design proposals, together with a virtual 3D model and flyover video to give an interactive view of the development. The designs have been informed by suggestions and feedback from the local community through the consultation programme.


This Land™, the architects and the rest of the project team will be on hand to answer any questions and discuss the next steps.



Consultation Process


With the aim to develop a masterplan that has local value, This Land™ have asked Soundings, an independent community engagement agency, to lead an open and transparent consultation process, facilitate dialogue with the local community, and ensure that the plans and designs are informed by local feedback.


The feedback during the consultation events so far has been shared withthe project team and the architects and has informed our plans and designs. We will continue to consult on the proposals until the planning application submission, and there will be continued opportunities for Soham residents to take part in the consultation before the plans are finalised. Once the plans are finalised and an application is submitted to East Cambridgeshire Council, a statutory Council-led consultation will take place.


You can see all the consultation materials and reports to date under Documents.



Consultation Events to Date


You can see an overview of the consultation events that we’ve held to date. Reports from the findings can be seen under Documents.

Consultation Street Pop-ups & Survey
We started meeting local residents at street pop-ups that we held in Soham on the 17th and 22nd February. We started gathering local feedback through canvass card surveys that passers-by had an opportunity to fill in, and we posted the survey online here, on our website, and on our Facebook page. A total of 104 people responded to the survey, the report can be seen here. The findings helped us gain an understanding of local priorities and informed the next steps of the consultation.


Consultation Walk & Talks in Soham
We held two consultation Walk & Talks in Soham on Saturday 10th March. Soham residents attending the events led members of Soundings and This Land™ around the site, the potential access roads to the site and parts of the town. A discussion was held at the Fountain following each of the walks, and maps and notes were produced by the attendees, the report can be seen here. The findings informed the evolving draft plans.

Open & Green Spaces Workshops
We held two workshop sessions on the 21st April 2018 at the Pavilion, where we had insightful and lively discussions with over 80 local residents. The workshops have been really useful in helping us understand what types of open and green spaces would benefit Soham the most. The findings informed the evolving plans and landscape designs. A report can be seen here.

Open Residents’ Forum
Ahead of the annual Town Council meeting, on the 21st May 2018, we held a session dedicated to the Soham Eastern Gateway. A representative from This Land™ was there, along with Soundings to answer any questions. Over 60 attendees raised many valid questions and concerns, which informed the next steps of the project team and the information being presented at the first public exhibition.

First Public Exhibition 16th, 17th & 21st July 2018
We held the first public exhibition at the Soham Pavilion and in the churchyard of St Andrew’s Church, where residents were able to review and comment on the draft design proposals and talk to the project team. Over 250 residents attended the three days exhibition. If you were unable to attend the event, you can still see the exhibition boards here. You can also view a summary of the exhibition findings here.

Frequently Asked Questions

This section provides answers to the most frequently asked questions, based on our conversations with Soham residents to date. If there is any information that you would like to see here that is missing, please contact us using the contact details below.

      • This Land™ is a development business established with the aim of offering a new, much more customer and community-focused approach to development than the traditional UK housebuilder model. The company wants to work with communities to create high-quality, attractive neighbourhoods that are designed to bring tangible benefits to the existing communities that will host them.

        Place-making is central to This Land™’s ethos, driving the development of desirable, well-integrated new neighbourhoods focusing on innovation and a customer-led approach to design, innovations, use of materials and facilities.
      • The Soham Eastern Gateway site has been allocated for development within the Soham Vision Plan 2010 and in the East Cambridgeshire Local Plan 2015, which means that it is allocated to be developed for housing in due course. There is both a national and regional shortfall in housing delivery that has lasted for many years. This means that all local councils are required by the government to allocate land for residential development.

        East Cambridgeshire District has a shortfall in its 5-year housing supply, and as a result there is a pressing need for sites allocated for housing, such as Soham Eastern Gateway, to be brought forward for development.

        This Land™’s planning application for Soham Eastern Gateway will cover the majority of the land within the site allocation. The site allocation also includes the retained allotments and land for a potential new school.

        This Land™’s aim is to design and deliver an attractive new neighbourhood for Soham that complements the existing town and will immediately become an integral part of the local community.
      • The majority of the Soham Eastern Gateway site included in the current planning application has now been acquired from the Cambridgeshire County Council with additional land purchased from a neighbouring landowner. Conversations with the Bishop Laney Charity about the inclusion of additional land are ongoing.
      • No, This Land™ was not involved with the site at that stage. The previous application was submitted by Cambridgeshire County Council on behalf of all the previous land owners jointly.
      • Soham Eastern Gateway is being designed with excellent pedestrian and cycle connections to the town centre, with the High Street approximately 5 to 10 minutes walk from the heart of the site. We want it to be recognised as a pleasant place to live and as a destination for existing residents of the town to enjoy. The development is being designed to deliver enhanced landscaping and new green spaces, seating areas, walking and cycling paths alongside new water features, play areas, a shop and possibly a café.
      • We are aiming to submit a planning application in summer 2019.
      • The delivery timescales will depend on a number of factors, including the granting of planning permission. All being well, we hope to be on site by early 2020, with the full development likely to take 10-15 years to complete.
      • The sites’ allocation in the Soham Vision Plan and Local Plan allows for up to 600 homes. The current design which is a combination of all details for Phase 1 of construction, but only outline design for the later phases, shows 575 dwellings.

        The proportion of affordable homes will be determined by East Cambridgeshire District Council in consideration of local policy and viability. It is likely that the affordable homes will be managed by a local housing association or an organisation such as the Community Land Trust, with the intention that priority will be given to potential residents with a local connection.
      • The design provides a variety of building styles and sizes, ranging in height from single storey homes to four-story ‘mill-style’ buildings. The height, and positioning of buildings have been considered in terms of the key views into and out of Soham, giving particular care to the long-distance view of St Andrew’s Church.
      • The quantity and quality of open space is a fundamental part of This Land™’s strategy to provide a truly desirable environment in which people want to live. As such the original green connection between the Commons has been widened and extended. The revised design allows for greater ecological enhancement and also greater landscaped areas to provide for local residents.
      • There will be a mix of spaces designed into the overall scheme, some more formal than others, but all complimenting each other and the overall ambience of the town.
      • Phase 1 of the construction will commence in 2020 and this will include significant parts of the open space, landscaping and lake schemes that you see on the site plan. Later phases will include more open space associated with the nearby housing.
      • We are working with specialist landscapers not just to protect biodiversity, but to enhance it significantly. Creating a healthy, environmentally sensitive place to live is a major part of our design philosophy, and priority will be given to the use of native flora that complement the adjacent Commons. Extensive use of water features is intended to augment the current ecology with fenland style features which will be great for wildlife and create an interesting and desirable place to live.
      • The new purpose-built health centre will be 60% bigger than the current one. It will be designed with the help and input from the local doctors to ensure that they can continue to provide an excellent level of care to the residents of Soham, well into the future.
      • This Land™ and the Staploe Medical Centre have made an agreement and a forward plan around the relocation and the new facilities. The GPs will remain in the same location until the new health facilities are ready, at which point they will relocate.

        The new surgery building will be situated in the heart of the new development, but still only about 200 hundred meters from its existing location.
      • Whilst the planning application for the overall scheme is being determined by the Local Planning Authority, the detailed design for the new health centre will be created. This will allow the Health Centre to be brought forward as quickly as possible, with the intention of commencing construction in 2020. The new health centre is expected to open in early 2022.
      • Although detailed design of the new facility has yet to be carried out, the design will be created with input from NHS England and the current GPs to ensure that projected future growth of the practice is taken into account.
      • The GPs will still remain in control of their business and staffing requirements. Expansion of the health centre will inevitably bring new opportunities for existing, and new residents in the town.
      • Car parking for staff and patients will be designed into the scheme in line with NHS requirements.
      • This Land™ will be building the new health centre at their expense as a long-term investment in the project, and also in Soham.
      • The new school will be built within the Local Plan’s site allocation, however, it is not part of the Soham Eastern Gateway development, nor is This Land™ involved in the actual development of this new facility.

        Although This Land™ have played a part in facilitating the development of the new school, the school is not included in This Land™’s planning application for Soham Eastern Gateway. We are however ensuring that the access to the new school is properly designed into our scheme for the ease and safety of those children and staff that will use it.
      • The Department of Education has exchanged contracts for the land adjacent to the Eastern Gateway development, with the intention of opening a new secondary school for Soham and the surrounding communities.

        St Bede’s Inter Church Academy Trust has been approved by the Department of Education to run this free school. The trust currently runs a secondary school in Cambridge (rated Outstanding by Ofsted). The proposed free school would have a Christian faith designation and provide 600 co-educational places for 11-16 year olds.
      • Final figures are net yet available as we are still in the process of designing the layout, but car parking provision will at a minimum meet East Cambridgeshire District Council’s policy requirements.

        In addition to providing sufficient residential and visitor parking on the site, This Land is also designing the site to encourage pedestrian and cycle use, especially from the development to the town centre which is only a 5 minute walk. The impact of extra traffic on the town centre should therefore be minimal.
      • The opening of the new school is subject to further planning. St Bede’s Inter Church Academy Trust are aiming to hold consultation for the school plans in Autumn 2019.
      • Comments from the last exhibition clearly indicated that there was a desire for a vehicular link from the town centre, through the development and out to the new roundabout on the A142 (and vice versa), although understandably those residents on the possible route options were largely not in favour.

        Two options have been considered to provide road access to the town centre following local discussions and feedback – Pratt Street and Brewhouse Lane. The Pratt Street option has been ruled out by County Council’s Highways Officers, due to the safety aspect of having extra traffic go past The Weatheralls Primary School. Highways Officers are however supportive of a road access through Brewhouse Lane, on the condition that the new road link is designed to discourage drivers from using the route as a cut-through. We are also in discussions to implement weight restrictions on the route to prevent HGVs using it.
      • The new medical centre will need to have been constructed and the GPs relocated prior to their site being demolished and the new access route being made available. Assuming that planning matters are dealt dealt with in the timeline, we would intend to commence building the Brewhouse Lane access in 2022.
      • The route between Brewhouse Lane and the A412 will be made uninviting, with several priority junctions and traffic calming measures employed to both slow down and deter traffic altogether. Weight restrictions are intended to be added so that HGVs do not come through the development and into Soham town centre, and the potential for parking restrictions and other mitigation measures are also being considered.
      • The development is being designed to encourage cycling and walking rather than driving. New pedestrian and cycle links will connect the town with the new housing, and although we appreciate that some will inevitably drive to the station, the route will be designed in such a way as to discourage the use of car, and to discourage the use of Brewhouse Lane.
      • Discussions have taken place with the County Council’s public transport team and local bus operators. It is unlikely that the proposed development will be able to support an improvement to bus services although discussions are ongoing.
      • The Soham Eastern Gateway development will provide an opportunity for improvement works to be carried out on the A142 to deal with an accident blackspot at the junction with Paddock Street. The County Council’s Highways Officers have confirmed that the proposed new roundabout that the development would deliver on the A142 will have sufficient capacity to handle all the traffic using Soham Eastern Gateway.

        Due to the permeability of the site into the town centre, residents will be encouraged to walk or cycle to the High Street, which will in any case be much quicker and easier than driving, minimising the traffic impact on the town centre and on local roads.

        This Land™’s specialist transport consultants are carrying out modelling to determine what further improvements could potentially be made through the planning application to other junctions and roundabouts in the area to improve safety and traffic flows.
      • In the 2011 Census, average car ownership in Soham was recorded at 1.5 per household. The development will plan for a minimum of 2 parking spaces per household with additional spaces for visitors, the health centre and central hub.

        In addition to providing sufficient residential and visitor parking on the site, This Land™ is also designing the site to encourage pedestrian and cycle use, especially from the development to the town centre which is only a few minutes walk. The impact of extra traffic on the town centre should therefore be minimal.
      • This Land™’s consultants have been instructed to ensure that all new and existing drainage infrastructure can accommodate greater than expected requirements. Design works are ongoing with Anglian Water, and the new charging system being adopted will mean that we will be contributing a significant sum to reinforce the capacity of the existing system.

        Foul drainage will be pumped from the site to the pumping station on Qua Fen Common and from here to the Soham Water Recycling Centre.
      • The evidence This Land™ has gathered suggests that the site is not under significant flood risk. The eastern corner of the site is shown on the Environment Agency’s flood map as befiting from flood defences that put its flood potential at 1 in 100 years or worse, but this calculation does not take into account the Internal Drainage Board’s infrastructure. This Land™ has been in discussion with the Environment Agency and they are in the process of updating local flood risk data to take into account our findings.

        New water features are also being introduced into the landscape to improve the capacity of the site to hold any flood water and keep it away from built up areas, as well as enhancing the wider Fenland landscape.
      • Our consultants have looked into this and determined that there are no springs located on the site, although there is a low point in the landscape close to Qua Fen Common that retains water. The land to the north, on Qua Fen Common, is at a lower elevation than the site and there are a number of seasonally wet ponds that could be fed by groundwater. The design of the new drainage features on site will include permanent water features which would help maintain groundwater levels.
      • The new development will benefit from hyper-fast broadband, available to residents from the day they move in. Each new home will be provided with its own router, with costs comparable to those of other mainstream providers. In addition to the service to the new residents, should there be sufficient interest from the existing community, there is the possibility that this system can be extended into other parts of Soham.
      • The development will provide a new Medical Centre, new affordable homes for local residents, employment opportunities, and facilitates the building of a new (Ofsted “Outstanding”) School. It will also provide new, and enhance existing, green spaces, will add new planting and trees to enhance the local biodiversity, and create new water-side public spaces, integrating the water on the site into the designs. In addition, highways safety improvements are proposed at the A142/Paddock Street junction with additional improvements being considered, and significant financial contributions will also be made to other education requirements and libraries.
      • Yes. This Land™ will commit to making a financial contribution to community requirements, such as primary and secondary education provision, libraries, nurseries, play and sporting facilities etc. Contributions will be provided via both Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and Section 106 funding, or S106. The level of funding will be negotiated with East Cambridgeshire District council according to its policy guidelines.
      • It is estimated that 163 jobs will be created during the construction of the project, and wherever possible This Land™ will encourage the use of local trades people and suppliers across the site. In addition, This Land™ plans to include an element of commercial/employment uses within the development, such as offices, a local store and a café, all of which will generate long-term employment opportunities. The provision of a new medical centre and a new school will also bring significant employment opportunities to the town.
      • Wherever possible This Land™ will encourage its partner organisation to employ local people, although we are unable to dictate who other companies employ. Where we can have an impact is in discussion with local companies to provide suitable premises at suitable rates to encourage local businesses to expand.
      • There will be provision in the plans for a new shop and we are also looking at the possibility of including a café. With its pedestrian connectivity and physical closeness to the High Street, the Soham Eastern Gateway project will make a significant contribution to vitality and economic viability of the town centre, its shops and services, by increasing footfall and customers.
      • The new development will benefit from hyper-fast broadband, available to residents from the day they move in. Each new home will be provided with its own router, with costs comparable to those of other mainstream providers. In addition to the service for the new residents, should there be sufficient interest from the existing community, there is the possibility that this system can be extended into other parts of Soham.
      • The current Soham Eastern Gateway development project learned a great deal from the feedback that the County Council received from its consultation process for its earlier proposals for the site in 2017. This Land™ has been consulting with the community on the current proposals since February 2018, through a series of street pop-up events, two ‘walk and talk’ consultations, two open spaces workshops, an open residents’ forum, questionnaires, online survey and a public exhibition. We have learned a lot from the local community and have responded to many of the comments and questions – both through the masterplan design as well as through related actions. For example, we have investigated the foul drainage situation and looked into the possibilities to improve this, which will be discussed with Anglian Water before the planning application is finalised.

        We have also had many helpful suggestions with regards to our approach to landscaping and open spaces, which has helped hugely in developing the masterplan options that we are considering.

        The outcome of these issues and the other aspects of the proposals are regularly being reported back to the community through public exhibitions and other communication channels. We are continuing to consult the local community and other stakeholders. Comments will be taken into consideration when we revise the proposals.

        You can see all consultation reports as well as the exhibition boards detailing how local feedback has informed the project under the ‘Documents’ tab on our website.
      • This Land™ is aiming to submit a planning application for Soham Eastern Gateway to the District Council in summer 2019. Following this, the Council need to validate the planning application, after which the plan will go through a statutory consultation process – that is the consultation process led by the Council, during which all residents will have a further opportunity to comment on the proposals submitted. Following this, the Council will be deciding on whether to approve the planning application. Only once a planning application is approved, do the plans become official and construction phase of the works can begin.
      • A ‘hybrid’ planning application means that in the same planning application, This Land™ will submit an outline application for the entire site, and a detailed application for phase 1. An outline application defines the general parameters such as the access arrangements, number of dwellings, and any other uses (e.g. retail), while the detailed application includes such things as house and road designs, landscaping and technical aspects such as drainage strategies.
      • This Land™ will only be able to start work on phase one for which a detailed planning application will be submitted. To be able to start any work on the areas outside of phase 1, for which no detailed application has been submitted, additional ‘reserved matters’ would have to be submitted to the Council at a later stage.
      • Assuming that a planning consent is achieved, the first element of works that needs to be undertaken will be the construction of the site access – the new roundabout on the A142.
      • A development of this scale will take several years to reach its conclusion, however the phasing has been designed and organised to minimise the impact of construction activities on both existing and new residents of Soham.
      • A Traffic Management Plan will be agreed with Cambridgeshire County Council highways in advance of works beginning. There will be no road connection between the site and the surrounding town during the initial construction phase, so all construction traffic will enter and leave the site via the new roundabout on the A142, resulting in minimal impact on the town centre. That principle will be maintained throughout the works on site.
      • The initial works will entail construction of the new roundabout on the A142 and the access to the site. The loop road around the site will follow, which will allow commencement of the phase 1 housing in the south eastern section of the site. The central hub area will follow, and thereafter the residential area connecting the central hub to Brewhouse Lane. Finally the works will be phased from the northern part of the site, heading south and then and building out (eastwards) back to the A142.
      • We intend to have the first housing completions during 2021
      • Hours of work will be restricted on site, and traffic management plans implemented. All construction traffic will be directed via the new roundabout on the A142, and no construction traffic will be allowed through the Brewhouse Lane link road (we also intend to implement a permanent weight restriction on the Brewhouse Lane link to prohibit HGVs from using that road).

        Schemes to minimise dust and noise pollution will be agreed with the contractors on site, and our teams will ensure enforcement thereof.

        The site will be bounded by both the gardens of the new homes, as well as current neighbouring housing, provide a natural buffer from the works. This Land™ will take care of any the construction works sensitively, taking steps to ensure that members of the local community (especially close neighbours) and local representatives are kept informed of the programme details and milestones and the mitigation measures that are put in place.

        We will also ensure that local residents are provided with dedicated contact details and means to get in touch to ask questions or express any concerns they may have.
