Barrington Plans Approved

Cemex’s application for 220 houses on the cement factory was passed by South Cambridgeshire District Council’s planning committee yesterday morning, by 6 votes to 5.

There was a very good turnout from local residents. The committee took the arguments about the impact and sustainability of the development seriously, but in the end they gave more weight to the current shortfall in housing in the district, which is putting a lot of pressure on the council.

There is no room for appeal against the decision (except by judicial review, which is unlikely).
