Representation Summary:

Object to the identification of Trinity Hall Industrial Estate as a residential led mixed use scheme.

Full text:

The client objects to the concept plan with specific regard to the Zone containing Trinity Hall Farm Industrial Estate.

The appliant wishes to redevelopment part of their site as shown on the attached masterplan, which would mean that providng for residential uses within this environment would not be appropriate.

The remainder is to be redeveloped for B1/B8 Mid-tech units purposes, together with car and cycle parking and associated landscaping and associated works (following the demolition of the existing buildings).

With a frontahe onto Milton Road and close to the guided bus way and taking inton consideration comercial units on the opposite side of Milton Road, resi is not appropriate and a mixed use scheme is not compatible with a mid-tec offer.

Any proposal should be underpinned by a employment study that ties in with the Local Plan and provides for a range of employment uses that support Cambridge's economy.

We also have general concerns regarding the viability of such a use on an employment site that is operating successfully, but just needs updating. The proposal is not deliverable.

The relocatiion of existing employment uses require more detailed analysis. We attach a copy of the pre-app submission.
