Tune into BBC Radio Cambridgeshire (95.7/96 FM; 1026 AM; or Digital) on Thursday 11 December at 7.00am, the Dotty McLeod Breakfast Show, when, after the news bulletin, we expect the topical issue of developers attempting to circumvent both existing and emerging planning policies by lodging opportunistic planning applications for housing on sites not included in the Draft Local Plan, to be aired. These applications are cynically taking advantage of the policy interregnum while the proposed new Local Plan is under consideration by the Inspector.

Four Fulbourn residents, Gill Godber, Robert Culshaw, David Cottee and Richard Townley (representing the Save Fulbourn’s Fields campaign) have been interviewed concerning the current proposal for 110 dwellings on the Teversham Road site (behind Poor Well), and they will be joined on the Thursday BBC radio programme by Sebastian Kindersley, the SCDC councillor for Gamlingay, who is raising the issue within Council of the rogue planning applications now besetting many South Cambs’ villages.

We hope that this further publicity will help raise awareness of our many concerns about the unsuitability of the Teversham Road site for development, and the inability of Fulbourn’s infrastructure to accommodate further large scale housing numbers.

Link to the BBC iPlayer site where you should be able hear  Lynn in Harston talking about Water Meadows and Allison in Fulbourn at  2 hr. 18 min.  into the 3 hr. recording.

The programme will also be available on BBC iPlayer for four weeks from the date of the broadcast.
