Tesco Gives Up on Hanley Grange Eco Town

The local BBC news this lunchtime are reporting that Tesco has abandoned plans to develop Hanley Grange as an Eco Town. Whilst they will doubtless keep an interest in the site and try again at some point, this is clearly a fantastic result for all those (including Cambridge Conservatives) who have opposed these ill-thought out plans - many congratulations to the Stop Hanley Grange campaign.

It is also another blow to the Labour Government and its plans to dump thousands of new homes on Cambridgeshire against the wishes of local people. With every passing day their authority and ability to implement deeply unpopular policies diminishes.
