Respondent: Turnstone Estates Limited

Representation Summary:

The proposed development parcel containing the Tarmac site is identified for business (B1) and
housing uses. Policy 12a sets out the approach to the delivery of business uses in North East
Cambridge. It is noted that Policy 12a proposes a flexible approach including for business types
and sizes, other types of uses to provide an appropriate mix, and adaptable buildings that can be
reused for other uses. It is considered that this flexible approach is appropriate at this stage
because it is likely that market demand and economics for different types of uses will change
during the lifetime of AAP. The redevelopment of the Tarmac site could accommodate a mix of
types of business and housing uses consistent with those identified for the Cambridge Business
Park area as defined in Policy 12a, but the exact mix of these uses would be determined once
the relocation strategy for the Tarmac site is known.
