College Masterplan Approved   
13 January 2016 | Posted by Andy Thompson
A Masterplan setting out a long term vision for the development of Girton College, Cambridge, was approved unanimously by South Cambridgeshire District Council's Planning Committee on 13 January.

The site is within the Cambridge Green Belt and the main College buildings are Grade II* listed and therefore close liaison with the Council, Historic England as others was essential in securing the recommendation for approval. Following 2 years of intensive work the Masterplan and Outline Planning application were described by committee members as 'a brilliant example', 'a high quality application' and 'incredibly well progressed'.

Beacon Planning led the consultant team which included Allies and Morrison and Robert Myers Associates. The consent will allow the College to bring forward detailed applications for 400 new student bedrooms, associated teaching, office and social space together with an auditorium and works to improve the grounds and sports facilities.
