MAJOR construction work on the second phase of the £30million redevelopment of Princes Street in Huntingdon town centre is about to start, now that the site has been cleared.

It will involve the construction of about 100 new flats, the refurbishment of existing listed buildings and the construction of a new library on a large area of land between the ring road and Princes Street by Nottingham based Clegg Developments.

Work on the second phase of the development is likely to be completed in 2009.

The first phase included the construction of new offices for Cambridgeshire County Council, a new combined Justice Centre, plus four new town houses in George Street and five luxury flats in Walden House, which has been extensively restored.

The new offices are a landmark building on a prominent corner position at the junction of George Street, Brampton Road and the ring road.

Five new court rooms have been provided - two magistrates' courts, two Crown Courts and a County Court. The new building replaces the former magistrates' courts in the Town Hall building in the Market Square and the County Court in Godwin House, across the ring road in George Street.
