Former Supermarket Site,
This derelict brownfield site was formerly in a mix of commercial and industrial uses but had lain vacant for several years. Located in a prime position between Huntingdon’s railway station and town centre, detailed representations were made to the Local Planning Authority which secured a change in its zoning from retail to residential use. Following extensive consultation with the Town Council, Planning Officers, technical consultees, adjacent occupiers and other interested parties a detailed full planning application has been approved for 345 new homes. Praised by the Local Authority as being an exemplar, the carefully-conceived masterplan has been designed to the highest quality, using bespoke architecture to “put back what has been lost” and enhance the character and appearance of the nearby Conservation Area and listed buildings.
