Client

Cambridgeshire County Council

Services Used

Pegasus Group prepared and oversaw a “Regulation 3” planning application for Cambridgeshire County Council to convert a bowling alley in Ely to create a new County Archives facility to provide over five miles of safe storage for the County’s historic records. The application also included the provision of office space for Council services.

The key planning issue in the application was whether the change of use would be acceptable given the out-of-town location and the existing community benefit offered by the bowling alley. It was successfully argued that the site’s location was close to bus and rail routes, along with the cultural and heritage benefits of the proposed archives, weighed in favour of the granting of planning permission.
