Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
The University of Cambridge and Cambridge City Council have worked in partnership on the preparation of the Old Press/Mill Lane Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) “to ensure that any future development safeguards the architectural, historic, cultural and archaeological importance of the site, and takes advantage of its setting on the river frontage within the historic city centre.”
Development will support the creation of a more attractive, accessible, safe and sustainable environment.
The entire site lies within Cambridge’s Central Conservation Area, which includes the historic core of the city and surrounding green spaces including Laundress Green. There are a number of Listed Buildings and Buildings of Local Interest (BLI) within and around the site.
