We have just submitted a full planning application for Phase 1 of our development at Bourn Quarter and outline application for Phase 2 of the development.
The application for development of the former Gestamp factory site at Bourn Airfield is for up to 26,757sqm/288,000sqft of commercial floorspace purposes (use class B1c light industry, B1b research and development and B8 warehouse and distribution with supplementary use classes A3 restaurant and café, D1 day nursery/creche, D2 gym), associated car parking and service yards, and landscaping.
Phase 1 comprises 15 units of 16,074sqm/173,010sqft GEA of commercial floorspace. Phase 2 comprises the development of up to a total of 10,580sqm/113,910sqft GEA of commercial floorspace.
We have gone out to tender and are hoping to commence construction later this year and already have serious interest from local business for one of the larger units.
