CONTROVERSIAL plans for a 132 homes in Long Buckby have been approved by the planning inspectorate.

Hallam Land Management has been given the go-ahead to build the homes on the west side of Station Road. The application had gone to the planning inspectorate after Daventry District Council refused planning permission for the scheme.

The plans had led to the formation of a residents group Buckby Residents Against Controversial Estates.
