150 homes and shopping centre plan for Wisbech garden nursery site

A NURSERY in Wisbech could be used for 150 homes and a 2,000 square metre shopping centre.

The 1.2 acre site of Harringtons Nursery in Lynn Road has been subject to several possibilities in recent years but now Ashley King Developments has come forward with a scheme to build there.

Savills has submitted a screening options statement on their behalf – effectively to determine what environmental issues might be raised- in advance of detailed planning.

The north east Wisbech site has a number of outbuildings, polytunnels and glasshouse which would all be removed if the scheme goes ahead.

“The house which stands on the front of the site will be retained,” says Savills.

“The site is well related to the settlement boundary of Wisbech and neighbours residential development to the south and is opposite Wisbech Town FC.”

The spokesman said they envisaged no significant impact on traffic if the homes are built and a new junction would be built to ease access.
