Planned Replacement for Bibimbap House – How Big?

Plans have been submitted to the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning service for the complete demolition of the Bibimbap House Korean Restaurant building and the residential accommodation above and behind it. If approved, the existing three-story building would be replaced by a five-storey building, with an additional basement.

Out of curiosity how often do projects with a majority of bedrooms (4/7) without any source of natural light (or ventilation?) get approved by local planners? I gather from a cursory glance at the situation that “no window” bedrooms can be problematic from a rental and sale point of view (ie. can’t be counted) but there is no specific rule against building them? If it’s uncommon I’m not sure it’s a good place to start now as “no windows in habitable rooms” is often equated with declining residential standards.

Utmost care has to be taken to maintain the history of Mill Road and thus it is imperitive that the roof line together with the shape and facade of each building within the road, all be preserved and maintained in their entirity,. to preserve it’s integrity
