Hanley Grange

As part of our stalinist top-down planning system, the Government has been busy looking for sites to dump more houses in the Cambridge area as ludicrously named 'Eco-towns', despite our Councils' planning departments already being rushed off their feet looking at sites previously forced on us for housing like Northstowe and Cambridge Airport.

All the local Councils, Cambridge City, South Cambridgeshire District and Cambridgeshire County have united in opposition to the plans for Hanley Grange. Despite the fine words on the developers website, this has all the makings of another Cambourne, i.e. a dormitary town, built around a supermarket car park, and completely reliant on car usage.

You can let the relevant government department know what you think about Hanley Grange by writing to:
Eco-towns Team
Housing and Growth Programmes
Department for Communities and Local Government
2/H9 Eland House
Bressenden Place

or email:
