A PUBLIC consultation has been extended after a computer glitch denied some people the chance have their say on the plans for the Northstowe new town.

The consultation was due to end on Sunday (March 30), but has been extended until Monday (April 7) following the error.

Peter Studdert, director of joint planning at South Cambridgeshire District Council, said: "A technical hitch with the website meant that all those who wanted to comment on the Northstowe application might not have got the chance."

He added: "We also want to remind residents that even when the formal consultation has ended they can still make their views known by contacting the council directly or talking to their local parish council."

If approved Northstowe would have 9,500 homes, new schools and community facilities.
