Long Sutton Cricket and Hockey Club plans are hit for six




Plans to improve Long Sutton Cricket and Hockey Club by generating income from new housing have been dashed.

Developer Broadgate Homes, of Weston Hills, confirmed that a scheme to build three bungalows on an unused part of Long Sutton’s Paradise Field cricket ground in Park Road has been scrapped due to a 50-year-old “covenant” attached to the land.

A property owner benefiting from the covenant has objected to the development, following Long Sutton Parish Council’s lead not to support the plans because of road safety, loss of sports land and “quality of life concerns” for residents.
