An application to redevelop and expand existing accommodation on Peake Road in Cambridge has been approved.
The developer, Brian Perry Charitable Trust, proposed to build a Podium Athletes Lodge, offering accommodation and facilities to service the Avantidrome.
Plans include 30 individual accommodation units - ranging from studios to two bedroom units, a dormitory block, a live-in managers accommodation and reception building and a communal service building which includes kitchen, dining, and laundry areas. The facility will house up to 86 guests.
A number of conditions have been placed on the consent including noise restriction limits, supplying a lighting plan and landscaping plan to Council, retaining all existing trees over 2 metres and upgrading the vehicle entrance.
The site has been used as an accommodation facility since 1991.
The resource consent decision follows a hearing held last month by Independent Commissioner, Andrew von Dadelszen. Council received 26 submissions both in support and against the application.
