Hatchfield Farm decision to be reviewed on Wednesday

Lord Derby's application to build 1,200 houses in Newmarket was rejected by local residents and Newmarket Town Council. Then it was unanimously rejected by the planning committee of the district council last June.

But, instead of listening to the local residents and businesses who have repeatedly told him his plans threaten thousands of local jobs, Lord Derby has appealed against this decision.

And on Wednesday, 9 February, Forest Heath District Council's planning committee will be asked by council officers to overturn their original rejection, despite the fact that Lord Derby's appeal is not due to be heard by a government inspector until later this year

Please contact your district councillors on the planning committee and ask them to uphold their original decision and join us and other local residents for the meeting at 4.30pm on Wednesday at Forest Heath District Council's offices at College Heath Road, Mildenhall, Suffolk, IP28 7EY.
