Dear Editor

We hope you have received our previous emails and they have been a help to you with writing your opposition letter to Peterborough City Council (PCC).

We want to let you know that if you already submitted a letter of opposition at stage one then you will need to submit another one again now we are at stage two, specifically opposing the new development plans for site HEL006H.

HEL006H may not have been the initial site you were concerned about but the future development of 60 houses on this site will affect all village residents with increased traffic, queueing at the crossings, pressure on school places and general disruption to the village, as well as the loss of Broadwheel Road as a quiet lane as it will have to be widened as stated in the site report.

This site getting the go ahead will make us an easy target for future development. If we dont show a strong opposition now this will be the first (or second) of many.

Other villages who were once small like Eye, Thorney and Glinton should be a reminder of what our future may hold if we do nothing.

Thank you once again for your interest in the new building developments and fingers crossed we can make a difference.

Best wishes

The Helpston Housing Team
