Representation ID: 55933

Received: 05/10/2020

Respondent: Ridgeons Timber & Builders Merchants and Turnstone Estates

Agent: Carter Jonas

Representation Summary:

Policy 23 seeks to ensure a comprehensive and coordinated approach to development and
regeneration at North East Cambridge, which is broadly supported. Policy 23 requires applications
for major development to successfully integrate with the surrounding area and to successfully
mitigate environmental constraints – see criteria c(ii) and c(vii). Nuffield Road Industrial Estate
is proposed to be redeveloped for residential use in the AAP; comprising 4 to 5 storeys and a
maximum of 6 storeys. However, it is expected that the existing builders merchant operations at the
Ridgeons site would continue and therefore existing activities associated with the existing use
need to be considered. Therefore, the parameters for residential development at the Nuffield Road
Industrial Estate site should be defined and adjusted to ensure that those uses are integrated and
compatible with the existing builders merchant operations at the Ridgeons site, particularly in terms of potential noise and residential impacts.
