The Parish Council has just been informed by Huntingdonshire District Council that they are proposing to dispose of land in Station Road for social housing development.

The field in question is situated between the Fentex premises and 86 Station Road.  Although owned by the District Council, it’s been used as farmland for many years.

The land is not allocated for development in the Huntingdonshire Local Plan to 2036 which was adopted by the District Council in May 2019 after extensive public consultation.

The Parish Council has been told that a planning application is imminent and officers from the District Council have offered to attend a meeting together with the registered housing association that they are working with.

Under the circumstances, the Parish Council has arranged a special meeting to enable members of the public to hear at first-hand what is being proposed.  This will be held on Tuesday 14th December, starting at 7.00 p.m.  Although this is a Council meeting, members of the public are welcome to attend and there will be an opportunity for questions to be raised.  With capacity at the Parish Centre limited by pandemic restrictions, the meeting will be held in the school hall at Warboys Primary Academy in Humberdale Way to accommodate those who may wish to attend.
