SALES of homes on a new estate in Huntingdon have ground to a halt because the St Neots-based developer has failed to put up street lighting or do landscaping work. Planners are adamant that the work at The Spinney, in Hinchingbrooke Park, which was a planning condition triggered by the sale of a given number of homes, must go ahead to protect potential buyers. But the developer claimed an indemnity offered to buyers should solve the problem. One prospective buyer, Hunts Post reader Catherine Killworth, and her partner Ben Norman have been sleeping on friends' and relations' floors for months because of the delay. Many of the homes on the site are 'affordable', including property bought on a shared equity basis, where buyers have part of the property on a mortgage and pay rent on the rest until they can afford a full mortgage.
