Cambridge 2000: Hills Road: Highsett
This was the first phase of the development of the site, with
the other two phases being in 1963 and 1965 and located at the
back of the plot. For the second phase, the architect was
originally going to put up a 15 floor building (taller than
any other residential development in Cambridge, even now) but
the planning application was turned down.
This was a Span development. Phase 1 consisted of 37 flats of
type ABC (in the Lyons lexicon), phase 2 consisted of 17 houses
of type T7 and T8, and phase 3 (officially on Tenison Avenue
rather than Hills Road) consisted of 31 houses of type R22.
