THE decision on whether to allow more than 1,000 homes to be built on the outskirts of Huntingdon has been postponed.

Two applications for the Northbridge site, off Ermine Street, north of the A141, were due to be discussed at Huntingdonshire District Council's development management panel on September 16 but both items have been removed from the agenda.

An HDC spokesman said no new date had been set to discuss the plans.

Persimmon Homes has submitted plans for 1,050 homes to be built on the site, as well as a primary school, community centre, footbridge and open space. Spittal Field Holdings has put forward plans for 1,021 homes, school, community centre and open space.
