The plan includes 76 car parking places and the road to the south of the site will need to be improved to make it easier to get to and from the units.

A small amount of land from the boatyard, owned by Fenland District Council, is required to improve access to the site.

The proposal will help stimulate the economy and create jobs, it is claimed.

A report from the developer said: “The proposed layout and access for the outline proposals are considered to represent a sustainable development, which will allow for the successful integration of the scheme into the existing urban control in this area of Wisbech.

“The proposed commercial units represent flexibly designed employment space to meet a wide range of potential small and medium enterprise requirements for which a potential market need has been identified and which has the potential capacity for a significant number of jobs.”
