Fourteen new houses will be built in Leverington on derelict land and a former garage - despite councillors concerns.
Ten new homes with roof-space bedrooms will be built on land north of The Chase while two miles down the road, former Crowson Motors outbuildings on Roman Bank will be demolished to make way for four homes.
Councillors at a planning committee at Fenland District Council on Wednesday (November 7) approved both sites, but reservations were aired about section 106 money for The Chase.
“It is very disappointing that only £20,000 was given for a multi-use games area (MUGA),” Councillor Maureen Davis said.
“For 10 executive dwellings it doesn’t seem appropriate.”

James Burton, speaking on behalf of the agent for The Chase, said: “The scheme has been carefully considered. The site has a positive planning history and green space will be kept where possible.
“This has the support of the residents.”
