Villagers raise worries over 200 homes plan

OPPOSITION appears to be mounting against the building of 200 new homes in Woodford Halse, according to the parish chairman.

On Friday Gladman Developments exhibited its proposals for land north of Byfield Road in Woodford Halse.

Parish council chairman June Irani said: “A lot of people don’t seem to be happy with this.

“It’ll mean a lot more traffic on a road that’s already inadequate, plus pressure on village services and facilities which are limited too.

“A lot of people aren’t happy – the first thing the parish council knew about this was when it appeared in the Daventry Express!”
