Plans for four new homes in a Fenland village have been turned down.

Lorraine Barker applied to develop land off Cattle Dyke in Gorefield, near Wisbech.

Gorefield Parish Council opposed the application. It said it was "not in keeping with the surrounding area" and "the access is inadequate for four dwellings".

A planning officer's report, which recommended refusal, said six letters of support were received and five opposing the plans.

It concluded: "The site falls outside the built envelope of Gorefield and development of the site would not constitute residential infilling and instead would result in an erosion of the open rural character of the area.

"The development proposal would result in an incursion into the rural countryside rather than small scale residential infilling causing unwarranted harm to the rural character and linear form of development of the area."
