Flats and houses to be built on Cambridge college's former tennis courts
Plans have been approved to build 35 homes on the site of a former tennis club in Cambridge.
Cambridge City Council’s planning committee unanimously approved the development on Wednesday (July 1).
The site, off Clerk Maxwell Road in west Cambridge, was formerly used as Trinity College’s Cocks and Hens Tennis Club, which was relocated to Grantchester Road in 2016.
The proposal was a joint application from Hill Residential and the University of Cambridge.
The proposal is for 21 houses for private sale and 14 flats for affordable housing.
The plans were well received by councillors on the planning committee.
Cllr Carla McQueen said: “It’s really refreshing, I like this, I think it looks great.”
Cllr Katie Porrer said it “seems to be a well designed development,” and the chairman of the committee, Martin Smart, described it as a “quite well considered design”.
