Note: This service for readers of this email and blog brings you news of planning applications in Queen Edith’s, along with details on how to provide your opinions on the applications to the council planning committee. All feedback on this service is welcome.
Where is the planning application for?
283 Queen Ediths Way, on the corner with Cherry Hinton Road opposite the Robin Hood pub
What do they want to do?
Demolish a bungalow and replace it with four three-storey blocks of flats (12 flats in total).
What does the site look like at the moment?
The bungalow is hidden behind trees on both Queen Edith’s Way and Cherry Hinton Road. The photos below from Google Street View/Google Earth show the view from Queen Edith’s Way and from the air above Cherry Hinton Road.
What will the new properties look like?
There are no photorealistic visualisations from the road shown in the application (which as I’ve said before here, is really unacceptable nowadays). However, from the colour plan of the site and the line drawing elevations (below), it would appear that the dense conifer screening is to be removed and the site completely opened up to show the new flats with just a few trees remaining.
The vehicle access to the site will be from Cherry Hinton Road, with six car parking spaces provided. The Queen Edith’s Way entrance will be for pedestrians or bikes.
