Struggling to keep up to date with the major planning applications currently hitting Chronicle Country?

Welcome to our column of what’s planned, what’s been approved and what’s heading down the pipeline in the area.

Campaigners are celebrating after an application for 170 houses on land north of Sandy Road, Potton has been withdrawn.

In May, it was revealed how despite the plot not being considered suitable for CBC’s Local Plan, the developer had still put in for planning application for this area.

The applicant had previously applied for 186 houses on the same plot last year and withdrew the application then.

Independent councillor, Adam Zerny said: “I am delighted the application has been withdrawn. There was huge local opposition to this huge development and I suspect it would have been turned down”
