Gunthorpe ward councillor Sandra Bond objected to plans due to concerns over a lack of amenities.

Her objection stated: “I object to this planning application on the grounds that within this application there are no plans for local amenities i.e. shops, community areas or recreational areas.

"At present there is only one small children’s play park on Paston Reserve development to accommodate over 600 homes which are mainly made up of residents with young families.”

A further 38 objections were received from members of the public which flagged up concerns such as they the new estates were going to get a shop, concerns over traffic congestion, insufficient playing fields and parks as well as a lack of visitor parking.

Outline planning permission was granted in 2017 for a maximum of 1050 new homes on the 36.9 hectare (91 acres) Paston Reserve Urban Extension on the northern edge of the city, off Newborough Road.

The earlier phases of the project, which includes the new Manor Drive estate, has been 652 new homes either being built or seen construction start.

Despite the objections, a reserved matters application, detailing access, layout, scale and landscaping of the new site has been approved by Peterborough City Council.

The application can be viewed on the council’s planning portal using reference 23/01102/REM.
