Two planning applications to keep an eye on

It may be Christmas Eve but development goes on … and on. Today Cambridge City Council has published its agenda, which has two Queen Edith’s applications, on Mowbray Road and Baldock Way. The agenda also says there is one on Cavendish Avenue, but be assured this is a mistake! Here is the link:

The Mowbray Road application, 14/1136/FUL is for yet MORE flats, and there have already been objections from three neighbours on the grounds of overdevelopment and the likelihood of additional parking and congestion.

The Baldock Way application, 14/1652/FUL, is to convert a bungalow on the corner of Glebe Road into a ‘chalet bungalow’. This has attracted a mixture of objections and support, mainly from people not resident in the area.

Under the new arrangements brought in by Labour when they took control of the City Council, the applications will not be determined locally, but at the Guildhall, on the afternoon of the 7th January.
