Hod Hall Lane Travellers’ Site thrown out

by Gareth Wilson on 6 April, 2011

At yesterdays East Cambs Strategic Development Committee The proposal to consider a new travellers site in Hod Hall Lane was debated. With a large number of Haddenham residents in the public gallery Cllr. Ian Allen spoke about the unsuitable nature of this site. Cllr Pauline Wilson pointed out that the area suffered from flooding already and any development here would make things worse. Cllr Gareth Wilson thanked the officers for recommending that the site should be eliminated from East Cambs local plan.
When the vote was taken, it was agreed that this site would be taken out of the plan.

Thank you to all the local residents that wrote letters and emails putting pressure on the East Cambs officers. At last the right decision following years of campaigning by councillors and local residents, which should bring relief to people living nearby.
