A large planning application for more homes near Potton has been withdrawn, much to the delight of independent councillor Adam Zerny.
The application was for 170 new dwellings in Sandy Road, to the north of the town, with Central Bedfordshire Council announcing the withdrawal last week.
Mr Zerny said: “I am delighted the application has been withdrawn.
“There was huge local opposition to this development and I suspect it would have been turned down.”
The same developer had previously applied to build 186 new homes on the plot last year, with the application also withdrawn.
In May, the council deemed the land unsuitable for development in their Local Plan.
CBC recently refused two other large developments on the outskirts of Potton, including an application for 60 homes to the south and west of the cemetery.
