LOCAL PLAN                                                       

The Local Plan was presented for public consultation last summer, for the proposed 540 new homes for Sawston on three sites all with sole access from Babraham Road with two of the sites in Green Belt. Sawston Parish Council acknowledged the need for some additional homes but considered the village schools, health centre and other amenities could not cope with this amount of development and the increased volume of traffic it would generate.

The Parish Council mounted a campaign to persuade SCDC that this scale of development was excessive.  Our efforts were unsuccessful and at a meeting in March SCDC voted to accept the plan.

 

LOCAL SITES ANNOUNCED TO PROVIDE NEW HOMES - please see attached press release issued Monday 3rd June
