Families win round in homes protest
RESIDENTS fighting plans to build 200 homes have won a stay of execution after developers pulled out of an appeal.
Poplar’s Farm Action Group has been campaigning against plans to build on a field behind Poplar’s Farm Road, Kettering. Map
It has just discovered that developers Taylor Wimpey, formerly Taylor Woodrow, has pulled out of an appeal against Kettering Council’s decision in November to reject the plans.
An inquiry was due to be held on October 2.
The residents’ group has been campaigning to make the field a designated green space, a move which Taylor Wimpey initially threatened to challenge in the High Court before deciding against legal action.
