The Committee received the following applications:

i.  21/01584/S73 - Section 73 application to vary condition 26 (Construction hours) of outline permission 17/2258/S73 for the Cambridge Biomedical Campus development to allow a variation in construction working times for the AstraZeneca north plot development only.

iii.  17/2258/COND23B - Submission of details required by condition 23 (Construction Method Statement) of planning permission 17/2258/S73

 

The Principal Planner corrected a typographical error at paragraph 6 of the officer report which referred to the National Planning Policy Framework 2019 and confirmed that the year referred to should have been 2021. The Principal Planner also confirmed that the proposals had been assessed against the 2021 NPPF. 

 

In response to Members’ questions the Principal Planner said the following:

  i.  Environmental Health had not raised any issues with distances to neighbouring buildings.

  ii.  The list of construction activities was listed on p57 of the agenda.

  iii.  Construction of the site had already begun and was expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2022.

  iv.  Officers did not have details of the sound protection in place at the site, however Astra Zeneca had a good relationship with Papworth Hospital and Astra Zeneca would liaise with Papworth Hospital if any issues were raised. Officers were not aware of any complaints being made since the works started in May 2021.

  v.  Contractors would arrive and leave the site outside of the working hours and Environmental Health officers would have taken this into consideration as part of their assessment.

  vi.  Any complaints about noise would be followed up by the Environmental Health Team.

 vii.  They were not aware of any residential development coming forward on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and works were due to be completed early 2022.

viii.  The purpose of the linking condition was that the applicant did not need to re-discharge conditions which had already been discharged on the original outline consent. 

  ix.  The applications are specifically in relation to the north Astra Zeneca plot. Any proposals for other sites would be considered on their own merits if and when they come through.
