The planning consultants behind the development of 330 homes in Royston have claimed that the changes made to the application reflect the concerns raised during the consultation.
Barford and Co has been in discussion with North Herts District Council planning officers and Royston town councillors since October to make amendments to their housing proposal for land north of Newmarket Road.
Planning director Martin Page said: “A key consideration was getting onto the site after it emerged there were safety concerns about the junction proposal from Newmarket Road.
“Now the plan has been amended with the creation of a new roundabout onto the A505.
“After discussions we have included the provision of affordable housing, as well as funding for improvements to the health centre and local surgeries.

“In relation to the rising land a key feature is to establish this as a chalk grassland community open space similar in character to Therfield Heath, with full public access for the benefit of the town.”
The application is ‘likely’ to go before the district planning committee on April 23.
