Plans have been submitted to build 30 homes in a Fenland village.

Gemdome Ltd wants to construct a mixture of terraced and detached houses on land north of Henry Warby Avenue, Elm.

An application to build two and three bedroom homes has been submitted to Fenland District Council.

The development would include some affordable housing and the units will have high levels of insulation.

The applications states: “The site will be accessed via an adopted section of road 5.500m wide and with 1.800m footpath either side, itself accessed off the turning head off Henry Warby Avenue.”

Some villagers have lodged objections against the development with the district council.

One resident wrote: “We are writing to object to the proposed development of 30 houses and 60 car parking spaces as the entrance to the estate would be through our currently small housing estate and we do not believe that our small road would be able to cope with such a significantly increased amount of traffic.”

Another added: “Currently this road is a nice quiet development built some 20 years ago. It’s not designed for the increase in traffic demands that 30 extra properties brings with it.”
