Cricket Ground Road, Lakenham

Master Planning & Urban DesignLakenham Body

Lanpro prepared a detailed master plan for a mixed use development on some 3.18 hectares of land under existing sports and leisure use on the former Lakenham Cricket Ground site.

The housing proposals included the provision of allotment spaces, equipped place spaces, upgrade works to local formal sports facilities and the provision of a 5-a-side football pitch.

Due to the loss of the existing sporting use across the full extent of the site and the planned demolition of the locally listed pavilion building the application was controversial and planning permission was granted on appeal.

The 75 dwelling unit scheme is currently being built-out by the developer Hopkins Homes.
