 There is more pressure for more new homes in Stapleford and Great Shelford.

Developers have highlighted a number of areas in the two villages that could take more houses in the future.

The document highlights the following areas for more potential development:

a. Land east of Hinton Way, north of Mingle Lane

b. Scotsdale Garden Centre

c. Land at Marfleet Close

d. Land at Grange Field, Church Street

e. Land at Hinton Way

f. Land at Granhams Farm

g. Land South of Shelford Caravan and Camping Club

h. Dernford Farm - leisure/tourism

i. Land off Cambridge Road

Developers have suggested that the plans for the area, known as the Local Plan, could be “unsound” unless they are changed to include at least some of this list.

The revised proposals will be considered by a Planning Inspector at the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan specific hearing sessions from June 6.

"Stapleford Parish Council are monitoring the situation and will respond to the requests for feedback as appropriate. In summary, we are not averse to development in principle; however it has to be appropriate, reasonable and proportionate, also taking into account infrastructure issues," said a statement from the Parish Council.

"Some of the potential developments in this Stapleford/Shelford omissions list would tend to change the very nature and landscape of the villages that we live in and, in effect, make us enlarged urban sprawl. We know that on the whole our parishioners object to this and do not support such large scale development in these villages.

"Villagers are welcome to attend Parish Council meetings to discuss and/or make representations to/attend the public hearings scheduled for June 2017. More detail will be published on our website as it becomes available.
