HADDENHAM'S Conservation Area is to grow after councillors backed a move to stretch the boundary and include part of Hillrow.

The decision was taken after residents and local organisations sent letters of support and more than 40 people attended a public exhibition.

Members of East Cambridgeshire District Council's strategic development committee gave the go-ahead for the changes to the Conservation Area.

Councillor Peter Moakes, committee chairman, said: "We have really good feedback from local residents during the consultation process on the conservation area.

"The new area will mean we can protect buildings, views and ensure development in the village is done in harmony with the existing environment.

"If anyone wants to know how the changes will affect their ability to build or develop land or their homes in Haddenham, our conservation officer is more than happy to help answer any queries."
