Sunday, 30th May 2021, 5:05 am

The owner of G & J Ping Ltd has submitted an application for the land in Coates Road which has previously been used as a transport depot for the haulage business.

Under the proposals, the new properties would be a mixture of detached three/four bedroom homes, and semi-detached three bedroom homes.

None of the dwellings would be ‘affordable’, with the applicant instead paying £270,000 to Fenland District Council in compensation through a Section 106 Agreement.

The site of the proposed development

Under the plans, the existing buildings at the site would be demolished.

A planning statement submitted to the council states: “The development detailed in the proposals would provide a mix of high quality detached homes and lower cost semi-detached homes for young families reflecting local housing needs, all within a small scale development which fits naturally with the existing development pattern.”
