Fenland District Council are considering national estate agency Connells’ application for 72 High Street, March, the former home of fancy dress shop Abracadabra.

No internal or external changes would be carried out on the building by the estate agency, which has 120 branches in England.

They already have branches in Peterborough, Cambourne and St Neots but this would be their first foray in to Fenland.

The applicant said the proposal “will significantly improve the vitality and viability of this part of the High Street” and would be “complementary” to the town centre.

They said: “The proposed use will not contribute to the amount of vehicular traffic since the property is located within the town centre and it is expected that staff and visitors will access the site by foot or use existing town centre parking.

“It would not cause detriment to the vitality or viability of this area.”

  • How on earth can the opening of an estate agency in a town centre "significantly improve the vitality and viability"?
