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

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.

“Most, if not all, these sites are Green Belt land and Great Shelford Parish Council remains totally opposed to development on the Green Belt,” said a statement from the Parish Council.

“We have recently been informed that some of the sites which landowners had put forward for inclusion in the Local Plan but which were turned down by the District Council (omission sites) will be examined by the inspector at a hearing on June 6th. The inspector has to assess whether the plan would be unsound without the inclusion of these sites. 

“The Science Park and housing proposed by Jesus College will be considered in July.

“So you would be correct in saying that there would be more housing if the developers convince the inspector contrary to the view held by the District Council that these sites should be included in the Local Plan.”
