A South Cambridgeshire builders yard could become new homes, an eco business park or a commuter site

A building yard in south Cambridgeshire could become homes, an eco-business park, or provide space for gypsy families and travellers, after a developer put forward three separate sets of plans.

Three planning applications have been submitted to South Cambridgeshire County Council for the redevelopment of the Centenary Works, at Button End, Harston.

Mr Willers, the applicant behind all three plans, said each of the proposals would meet an “undeniable and appropriate” need in the area.

the The first application It is to demolish the existing buildings and build eight cottages, each with private gardens and two off road parking spaces “for young families and professionals looking to relocate to the area with a fantastic sustainable location”.

the The second application It seeks to transform the site into an eco-business park for small businesses, and offers eight “modern and green” small industrial units, each with a green flat roof, solar panels and electric vehicle charging points.

under Third applicationSeven playgrounds will be constructed for the gypsies and travellers, each with space for a fixed caravan, mobile caravan, dedicated building, awning and parking for two cars. A children’s play area is included at the rear of the site and a site manager’s office is proposed at the front of the site.

The documents shed light on a protest last year outside The Guildhall in Cambridge over the lack of sites for gypsies and travelers in the area.

While the business park plan could “marginally” increase the number of cars traveling to the site, the other two options would reduce the number of people traveling to the site, the applicant said.
