Draft North East Cambridge Area Action Plan

Representation ID: 55926

Received: 05/10/2020

Respondent: Ridgeons Timber & Builders Merchants and Turnstone Estates

Agent: Carter Jonas

Representation Summary:

Policy 11 sets out the housing design standards for residential development within North East
Cambridge. It is noted that criteria (b) includes a requirement for private outdoor space which can
be provided as private balconies. As set out above, it is anticipated that the proposed residential
uses at the Nuffield Road Industrial Estate site would include balconies for private outdoor space.
However, it is considered that the existing operations at the builders merchant on the Ridgeons
site could be incompatible with private balconies on building facades adjacent to this site, in
terms of potential noise generating activities.
