New homes for Long Buckby thrown out

THERE was victory for villagers in Long Buckby as plans for 132 homes were thrown out last night (Wednesday).

The new homes, which would have been built on land to the west of Station Road, were refused by the planning committee of Daventry District Council (DDC). This was despite planning officers recommending the plans for proposal.

Plans for a Tesco Express on the A45/A5 crossroads at Weedon were deferred by the committee until a site visit could be arranged.
