A £1.4m office block in Huntingdon, until recently an administration centre for Royal Papworth hospital, could be converted to 24 one-bedroom flats. The NHS Trust’s lease expired a year ago and agreement was reached for the team based at Justinian House at 10 Spitfire Close to move two miles away to share office space at Kingfisher House with the Cambridge and Peterborough Foundation Trust.

“Retaining a facility in Huntingdon was very important for the staff based there,” Eilish Midlane, Royal Papworth chief executive reported earlier this year to governors.

Dinora Homes Ltd of Essex has submitted an application to Huntingdonshire District Council to convert Justinian House, Huntingdon, into 24 flats.

“A residential scheme of one-bedroom flats will generate less traffic movement than the current office usage,” director Robert Crow of Hemingford Grey told the council in his application.

“There are 46 parking spaces currently provided on site including disabled and visitor spaces, which will easily provide for the parking demands of a residential scheme.

“The site has a bus stop just outside the development and cycle parking will be provided on site.

“The site is also within walking distance to Huntingdon Town Centre. It is therefore anticipated that the residential proposal will in fact reduce the impact on local traffic.”
