Terms & Conditions
The site has been confirmed by South Cambridgeshire District Council as one which should be afforded protection as an employment-generating site under Policy E/14 of the recently adopted South Cambridgeshire Local Plan 2018.
The policy seeks to preserve employment sites unless specific criteria are met. The Local Planning Authority would expect a future use of the site to be one generating comparable levels of employment when assessed against the existing use which generates in excess of 70 jobs.
Development that does not generate employment would need to meet at least one of the three criteria within the policy and fundamentally in this case that there is no market demand for continued employment use.
