Road study needed before decision is made on nine new homes

Plans for nine homes at Westry have been delayed until there have been further highway safety studies.
Officers at Fenland District Council recommended that the planning committee approve the scheme.
But members said they were not happy to make a decision until highway studies were completed.
Neighbours of the scheme say the field has poor drainage during heavy rainfall and building new homes there could increase the risk of flooding to nearby homes.
They also argue that the entrance is very close to the Woodville Drive entrance which would cause confusion to other road users when turning into a new development.
