DPP has enjoyed huge success at an appeal for Caddick Land in Stilton, Huntingdonshire with planning permission allowed for 90 new homes.
The historic village, with a population of just under 2,500 has a recently adopted local plan, and the site, on North Street, was not allocated within this. Previously refused on grounds of excessive noise and poor air quality, due to it’s proximity to the A1(M), the council also had concerns regarding private car use and the village school’s capacity. DPP successfully argued that those issues could be adequately addressed and the inspector agreed with all points made, allowing the appeal subject to suitable planning conditions.
Speaking about the win, the second appeal success for Caddick following Maulden in Bedfordshire in 2019, DPP’s Head of Residential, Mark Lane said;
“We are delighted that the inspector agreed with all of our points, and allowed the appeal on this important site in Stilton. We look forward to working with Caddick Land on other opportunities in the future”.
