Alex Anderson, regional director at Richborough Estates, said: “After consulting with the community, we are pleased to submit this planning application for a sustainable and high-quality place which blends and connects with the existing March community.

“The development will not only meet local housing needs but provide a great place to live, with views of the historic St Wendreda’s Church.
