The first concerns a proposed housing development between Wort's Causewy and Babraham Road:

The proposal affects at least 50m of the double hedgerow on Wort's Causeway to provide vehicle access to the This Land development at Newbury Farm. This is a habitat for bats, endangered birds including barn owls, skylarks and grey partridge. There are 7 species of bat living there, one of which is extremely rare in the UK. Details on numbers and distribution of flora and fauna are contained in the environmental impact assessments, submitted with the plans, which identifies the northern hedgerow being of particular importance to wildlife and recommends retaining it completely
