Land between St. Johns Street and George Street, Huntingdon will shortly see enabling works commence for a new mixed-use development comprising flexible-use commercial units, as well as 304 dwellings that includes both houses and apartments.
It was announced back in June 2018 that planning permission had been granted, with local construction business Mick George Ltd contracted to complete Demolition, Remediation and Earthworks for a twelve-week period, on behalf of JCAM Commercial Real Estate.
The location will be home to a variety of shops, professional service outlets, food and drink amenities, and a series of one to four-bedroom residential properties.
The site has been laying redundant for a number of years following the closure of farm machinery importer and distributor, Ruston’s Engineering Company LTD. The family owned firm, which was originally founded in 1955 took the decision to seize trading a few years back as a result of external competition.
Michael George, Managing Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Given our locality and contracting expertise and experience, we’re the perfect choice to be completing the necessary works. We’re more than familiar with the site and can ensure that we will do our upmost to minimise any disruption on the surrounding communities.’’
