The proposed development in central Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, covers an area of approximately 2.1ha (TL 2380/7170) and is bounded by Walden Road, George Street, Market Hill and Prince’s Street. The new complex involves the construction of purpose built office accommodation and other buildings. The site lies in an area of potentially rich archaeological remains, within the medieval town and probably within the Anglo-Saxon burh. Roman, Anglo-Saxon and medieval remains have been recorded in the vicinity and the site itself contains a considerable section of medieval marketplace frontage. Several building on Prince’s Street, Market Hill and George Street have grade II listing status and will be incorporated into the development. Historic maps indicate no development along Walden Road and this area of the site may offer the highest potential for the survival of archaeological remains, particularly relating to Saxon occupation. At least one medieval church and associated burial ground may be present within the development site.
