Skyscraper Approved for Coleridge

I understand that this detailed planning application concerning the Tim Brinton site at the corner of Hills Road and Cherry Hinton Road was approved by the planning committee today. The officer recommendation was for approval, and the Councillors just didn't have any valid planning reasons to object. Permission has therefore been granted for the construction of a 10-storey tower block in Coleridge.

This part of Cambridge is looking more and more like a corner of London suburbia - lets hope the design and quality are going to be reasonable. One thing is for sure, the car parking proposed for the site, is totally inadequate - residents parking on surrounding roads looks almost inevitable at some point...
