HCA responds to residents’ concerns

Following earlier revelations on the Homes and Communities Agency‘s (HCA) intentions for the land it holds around the villages of Castor and Ailsworth in Cambridgeshire it has responded to a query from the Parish with a typically oblique reply:

At the present time, the HCA does not have detailed proposals for this site as the site is not allocated for
development in any existing adopted planning policy for Peterborough, nor is it included in any emergent planning policy currently being considered.  Should the site be required at some point in the future to provide for Peterborough’s growth, the HCA will look to plan the site in a comprehensive
manner, working with local partners.

There is still nothing to stop it selling off its holdings around the village envelope (between the village and the by-pass) to developers – like Clay Lane.  And, since the government’s decision to scrap regional spatial planning has been ruled unlawful, it seems that housing quotas are again back on the agenda.
