Nursing Home trying again to expand

Cherry Hinton Nursing Home on Cherry Hinton Road is again pursuing plans to expand. The previous plans were rejected at committee after local residents raised strong concerns about the further traffic impact, in light of problems already being experienced with deliveries.

The new plans, drafts of which have been circulated to neighbours, seek to move the entrance away from Kelvin Close to try to address the problem.

Local Conservative campaigner Andy Bower spoke to some Kelvin Close residents last night, and I have been in touch with the planning department, it appears that the scale of development proposed is not signficantly lower, and there remains opposition from residents.

The previous refusal is now a material consideration for any further application, but I share residents concerns that any significant expansion on this site will cause unacceptable traffic problems, particularly from delivery vehicles.
