Hatchfield Farm application refused unanimously

Forest Heath District councillors tonight voted unanimously to refuse the planning application submitted by Lord Derby to build 1200 homes on Hatchfield Farm in Newmarket.

The many members and supporters of Save Historic Newmarket who turned out in force to hear the determination were delighted with the outcome and thanks must go to Newmarket Town Councillor Richard Fletcher, Godolphin's Hugh Anderson, William Gittus of Jockey Club Estates and Councillor Pat McCloud for making such tremendous representations on behalf of the town.

Thanks also to Tattersalls for the considerable resources they have devoted to achieveing this result and to the councillors themsleves, who listened to the people of Newmarket and have acted in their best interests.
