Councillors Urged to Approve Edinburgh Scheme
20th Mar 2019
Plans have been put forward to build a major new student accommodation development in a Cambridge conservation area.
The development, which consists of four new buildings, 60 student rooms, and 24 flats has been submitted to the city council by King's College, Cambridge.
The project could also result in the refurbishment and extension of the existing historic building at 27 Barton Road, together with associated cycle and car parking and external works, following the demolition of the existing buildings at 1-12 Croft Gardens.
Documents submitted as part of the application said the new accommodation would replace a cluster of 1930s buildings, which although are of local interest, are not suitable accommodation in their current state.
The design and access statement added: "The existing three Croft Gardens buildings are designated Buildings of Local Interest but have no listed status. Detailed investigations have shown that they are not particularly good examples of their type, they are in poor condition externally and internally, and they fall short of current standards for dwelling."
A consultation on the plans runs until late January, with a decision due on the development before the end of March 2019.
