The proposed development, covering an area of approximately 0.43ha 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 somewhat uncertain archaeological potential, within the medieval town and probably just outside the Saxon/Danish burh. Roman and medieval remains have been recorded in the vicinity, although historic maps indicate no 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, together with the lack of development until the late 19th century imply a high potential for preservation of any archaeological remains on the site that have not been disturbed by foundations.
