Industrial outbuildings in Gorefield will be demolished to make way for 14 houses.
Dennicks Yard, in Back Road, will see the properties built on the "dilapidated" brownfield site.
Four of the houses are set to be social rented.
One tree will also be removed due to it "not being in good health".
The application was agreed by all councillors on Fenland District Council's planning committee on Wednesday November 6.
