United Reform Church considers Redevelopment

The United Reform Church on Cherry Hinton Road is considering how it will use the site in future, including potentially redevelopment of part of the site.

This may be complicated by the Council expressing an interest in designating the church a 'Building of Local Interest', giving it some protection in the planning system.

They are holding an open day on Sunday 6th September, with a BBQ from 4pm, and presentation/discussion at 6pm, and local residents are encouraged to attend.

The Church authorities are taking a very sensible approach here to this project, by consulting local residents, and are keen on developing community use of the site, so hopefully there will be a positive outcome for the community that also conserves and enhances the built environment in this part of Coleridge ward.
