Planning approval has been granted for the development of 9 new homes in Malta Road.

Cambridge City Council’s decision means the site which has fallen into disuse since 2018 can now be regenerated into an attractive mews contributing much needed new homes to the Local Plan.

This Land has worked with Morse Webb Architects to develop high quality new homes consisting of four three-bedroom houses, four two-bedroom flats and one studio flat with associated amenity space, car and cycle parking.  All the homes on this development contain private gardens to the rear and roof terraces above the garages.  A total of 535 sqm private amenity space will be provided.

The scheme has been designed to respond sympathetically to the site’s surrounding context, scale, form and proportion, which is reflected in the choice of materials.  Buff brick is used throughout with contemporary brick detailing to add visual variety and interest.

Carter Jonas, who worked on this proposal providing planning advice, were instrumental in securing this success and This Land are grateful for their support and input in the process.

David Gelling, MD at This Land, says: “This project demonstrates how working closely with Cambridge City Council we have managed to put together a proposal that will not only meet the needs of the Local Plan but will also contribute to regenerate and enhance this area contributing to creating jobs and building beautiful and sustainable places where people want to live.”
