An appeal has been lodged after an application for 95 houses off Shepreth Road in Foxton was turned down by South Cambs District Council’s planning committee.

All representations can be sent directly to the planning inspectorate before September 11.

Due to the national housing shortage Foxton Parish Council has decided to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan for the area.

A Neighbourhood Plan allows towns and villages to have more say over the future development, regeneration and conservation of their local area.

If approved, after a village referendum, it will become part of the statutory development plan for Foxton.
