PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Plans for a sustainable new neighbourhood in Cambridge made up of houses, offices and community spaces have been approved, developers say. Devonshire Gardens will be built on the site of a former Travis Perkins depot near the Mill Road conservation area. Initial plans were rejected by Cambridge City Council last year over concerns about the size of the development but have since been scaled back. There will now be 70 new housing units rather than 100 and a smaller garden area. Other changes include reducing the heights of two blocks and changing the use of one from residential to office space. In total, there will be now be two residential blocks and four commercial buildings as well as a central garden.
