Beacon Planning has secured planning permission on behalf of Churchill College for the development of three blocks of student accommodation just off Storey's Way, Cambridge

The proposal constitutes the demolition of an existing office building and the development of postgraduate student accommodation through the provision of 35 new student rooms on the College campus site.

Beacon Planning was appointed by the College to cover both the planning and heritage elements of the proposal. The site is particularly sensitive in terms of its historic significance being located within a Conservation Area and near a Listed Building. However, the impact of the development on the historic environment is considered to be acceptable, providing an enhancement to the setting.

During the course of the application Beacon Planning have worked closely with the project architects, Cottrell & Vermeulen Architecture Ltd, and Cambridge City Council to provide the successful outcome.
