One of the latest residential schemes in Cambridge to have been granted approval has seen Beacon Planning acting in advising the current owner of the site.

The approved scheme, on East Road in the city, will see a used car sales lot be replaced by eleven 2-bedroom apartments set above two retail units.

Beacon Planning was appointed by the site owner in 2010 and worked in conjunction with local architects, Freeland Rees Roberts to ensure the scheme was compliant with published planning guidance for this part of Cambridge – which is at one of the key transport approaches to the city centre.

The proposed scheme was well received last year by Cambridge City Council's Design and Conservation Panel.

While the scheme was recommended for refusal by the Council's planning officers, the application was unanimously approved by the Planning Committee at its meeting in January.
