Councillor Sargeant withdrew from the Committee for this item and did not participate in the discussion or decision making.


The Committee received an application for full planning permission.


The application sought approval for erection of a mixed use scheme comprising 11 flats and 2 retail units following demolition of existing buildings at 18, 18a, 18b and 18c-d Chesterton Road.


The Committee received a representation in objection (as a written statement) to the application from a representative of Ashton Legal Cambridge:

  i.  The application was too large for the site.

  ii.  Appreciated that privacy screens were required by planning condition.

  iii.  The east elevation would cause unacceptable harm to the outlook from 1 Riverside Court.

  iv.  Requested the kitchen window of flat 5, and flat 9 bedroom 2 window, be non-opening and obscure glazed.


Mr Hanlon (Applicant’s Agent) addressed the Committee in support of the application.


The Committee:


Resolved (by 4 votes to 0)to grant the application for planning permission in accordance with the Officer recommendation, for the reasons set out in the Officer’s report, and subject to the conditions recommended by the Officer.
