Just a reminder to all those (including Castelfields who had stated that “the site has never been incorporated within the Green Belt”) that these fields were indeed in the green belt until 1992.
SFF have the documents from the aborted 1987 application, which makes this clear, and Castlefields should have known this.
So the proposed designation as LGS is merely restoring (to some extent) the protection which the site had rightly enjoyed for decades. The Council’s confirmation of this LGS proposal, as recently as March 2015, is very helpful: it would be utterly perverse for them to do that, and then one month later allow 110 houses to be built.
These fields bring the countryside into the conservation area of Fulbourn. Without them, the valuable environment of Poor Well would be ruined, and the whole outlook spoilt for ever.
