Chapman’s Farm – Latest
It has recently emerged that Chapman’s Farm, located on Hall Lane (opposite Bird Lane) and currently used for horse riding and stabling, has been sold by Trinity College, Cambridge University, subject to planning permission. In addition the riding stables have been given until 31st December to vacate the premises.
The farm covers an area of 1 acre and, like the adjoining fields, is situated on Green Belt land. As yet, no Planning Application has been received for the potential development of seven ‘luxury’ homes. However, any such development would be subject to planning approval which would have to take into account the impact on the Green Belt.
Clearly, this has caused significant concern in the community and, as soon as an application is received, we shall advise residents through this website, social media, flyers and The Bulletin.
It is important that objections/comments are made which refer to a specific planning application (which we are yet to receive), otherwise a general disapproval of building on the site (without reference to a Planning Application) cannot be taken into account when the application is finally considered by the Planning Committee.
Protecting our Green Belt is a top priority for the Residents’ Association and we shall keep you updated on this.
