It would be “negligent” to approve 220 homes on boggy land, reader says

Let’s hope the Fenland Planning Councillors use their common sense to determine the application for 220 houses next week.

Essentially the same application that was rejected in 2013 by the council and rejected again in 2014 by the Planning Inspector on Appeal.

Altering the road layout and proposing elevated floor levels does not wash. The Planning Inspectors’ concerns still stand.

It would be negligent to build 220 houses on land that all local Whittlesey people know is so boggy that you have squelchy wellies, even after a prolonged dry spell.
