Hatchfield Farm application 'called in' by the Secretary of State

In fantastic news for Newmarket, the appeal against Lord Derby's disastrous plans to build 400 houses on his stud farm outside Newmarket have been 'called in' by Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, the Rt. Hon Eric Pickles MP.

The application was rejected by Newmarket Town Council, and was rejected by all Newmarket's District Councillors at Forest Heath District Council. However, District Councillors who do not live in or around Newmarket voted for the damaging scheme. Newmarket residents have already appealed the decision.
