Woodston businesses to be lost after flats plan approved

Two businesses in Woodston are set to be lost to allow for the building of 12 new flats.

Tuesday, 22nd June 2021, 2:40 pm

Pinn Homes Limited has received planning permission from Peterborough City Council to build on the corner of Bakers Lane, off Oundle Road.

However, this will result in the demolition of buildings currently used by car leasing company I-cars Peterborough Ltd and Bakers Lane Hand Car Wash.

The new block of flats will be three storeys in height facing Bakers Lane and two storeys facing The Dell.

The council had received three objections to the plans, one of which highlighted the loss of jobs.

Others raised fears about an increase in traffic and loss of privacy for neighbours.

Both affected companies have been contacted for comment.
