The proposed development, covering an area of approximately 0.43 ha and centred on TL 2434/7176, is bounded by Riverside Road, Brook House, and the houses of Victoria Square and Temple Close, in the town of Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. The proposed development involves construction of residential dwellings. The site lies in an area of largely unknown archaeological potential, within the medieval town and probably just outside the Saxon/Danish burh. There are Roman and medieval remains recorded in the vicinity, but no historic maps that indicate any development in the area until the construction of the Model Laundry itself in 1896. The evidence of past activity to the north, south, and west and the lack of post-medieval development until the late nineteenth century imply a high potential for preservation of any archaeological remains on the site that have not been disturbed by foundations.
