Six new homes are set to be built in a village in the Fens despite objections.

Fenland council has agreed outline permission for the scheme in Leverington, near Wisbech.

A planning statement for the area off River Terrace said: "The site was previously a vegetable packing building which has since been demolished and hence the site is currently brownfield.

"The proposed development is for the construction of six residential dwellings with associated parking and gardens."

Leverington Parish Council described the scheme as "over development" and two neighbours objected over fears it would bring extra traffic to the cul-de-sac.

One said the road was "completely unsuitable" for extra vehicles.

But a planning officer's report, which recommended approval for the development, said: "The parish council, along with the neighbourhood consultees, raised queries regarding the access to the development.

"The highways authority has raised no objections to the application."

It said details of layout and parking arrangements would be dealt with in a full planning application.
