FOR SCUDAMORES PUNTING COMPANY
Provision of Heritage Statements supporting planning applications for new pontoons and ticket offices for Scudamore’s punt stations in the Mill Pit and Quayside.
What we did
Provision of Heritage Statements, detailing the significance of the surrounding historic built form in these iconic Cambridge locations.
The impact of the proposals was assessed as being negligible.
Provided design advice to ensure the ticket offices sit subtly within these historic views, and did not attach to the listed bridges so Listed Building Consent could be avoided.
Cambridge City Council's Planning Committee granted consent for both the Mill Pond and Quayside punt stations, and both locations will now benefit from a general improvement to appearance as well as the operation for visitors.
Once completed, the proposals will also allow for access to punting for disabled patrons.
