Rapleys, on behalf of Godwin Group, has submitted a screening opinion for 107 homes and 16,000 sq ft of commercial floorspace in East Cambridgeshire.

The 1.9-hectrares brownfield site fronting Angel Drove has previously been developed to accommodate agro-industrial buildings and a car park by previous occupant Westmills Food Ltd. However, it has been vacant since 2008 and the existing industrial buildings were demolished in 2012.

The screening opinion also specifies that the 16,000 sq ft of commercial floorspace will be modern, purpose-built and flexible.

The screening opinion concludes that the development does not trigger the threshold criteria under Schedule 1 and 2 of the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017 and therefore does not require an EIA before proceeding.

The application was received by East Cambridgeshire District Council on the 19th January 2021 and is currently pending consideration.
