The plan to build up to sixty houses on the edge of Braughing caused worry and concern for residents as they saw the development as a burden on infrastructure of the area and the destruction of beautiful countryside on the edge of the historic village .
The main arguments against the development were:
- The proposal represented an unsustainable form of development and conflicted with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF)
- The proposal represented a major extension of the village which impacted the countryside, reduced the space between settlements, represented a loss of the open space well used by residents and would have a major negative impact on the local landscape.
Govresources wrote the appeal statement which was delivered by local representative.
The appeal was dismissed.
