THE landscape south of Stukeley Road, beside the East Coast main railway line in Huntingdon, could look like this if district council planners agree.
Camvil (Developments) Limited, of Godmanchester, has applied to build 68 apartments on the site, currently home to Alda Motors, the former Stukeley Road Nurseries and a small number of homes.
Planners have already agreed to housing on the next-door site of the bus depot, said architect Graham Campbell, of the Campbell Rees Associates, also based in Godmanchester.
HDC planners have long complained about the poor appearance of this part of Stukeley Road and may look kindly on an edge-of-town centre development that deals with unsightly land contaminated by previous industrial uses.

Footpaths and cycleways planned into this and the bus depot developments will be used by residents of Stukeley Meadows and, in future, the 1,250-home planned development of Northbridge beside the A141 at Spittals to get to and from the town centre, leisure centre and St Peter's School, Mr Campbell said.
There will also be footpaths and cycle access to the railway station.

A bold contemporary design is proposed, projecting a strong image, with large windows and recessed balconies.
Of the 68 flats proposed, 41 would be for the open market, with the remaining 27 available as "affordable" homes.
