An appeal to build four two-storey houses in Guyhirn has been refused out of fear it would have an “unacceptable impact” on the village.

The site on land south east of The Chase, off Gull Road, was refused by Fenland planners in March this year.

The appeal was made by Mr and Mrs Channing, after a similar scheme was dismissed in November 2016.

The site would have included four two-storey houses with one five bed and three four bed with garages.

Despite the appellants referring to similar planning decisions in the area, officers still refused it.

The report read: “We are not persuaded that the facts or timing of any one of these cases is so aligned with this case that the previous decisions indicate that this appeal should be allowed.

“But the current case is purely on its own merits in light of particular circumstances that apply in this instance.”
