The decision to grant planning permission for Northstowe phases 3A and 3B is being challenged.

Local communities across Longstanton, Swavesey, Cambridge and others have already raised £12,500 and a crowd justice fundraiser is over half way to reaching its £5000 target, with over 70 people having already registered pledges. 

The money already raised has been lodged with solicitors Hodge Jones and Allen. Solicitor Susan Ring and Jenny Wigley QC are seeking a Judicial Review under instruction from Fews Lane Consortium acting on behalf of the wildlife and communities affected by loss of ground water.
