Care Home Development on Hotel Felix site

Girton, Cambridge
Building size
1.4 hectares

Our goal was clear: to gain planning consent for this ambitious project while navigating the site's Green Belt location and heritage assets.

We took a multi-disciplinary approach, collaborating with the client and local authorities to address concerns and demonstrated the pressing need for a new care facility. The development comprised a Very Special Circumstance (VSCs) case.

We successfully achieved planning consent for the brand-new care home, paving the way for the care providers to bring their vision of revitalising community care to life.

This state-of-the-art care home will make a positive impact on the lives of those in need and benefit the local community.
