Save Titchmarsh, Thrapston and Upper Nene Valley Countryside & Habitats
This web site has been set-up to support the STAUNCH Campaign which aims to protect the village of Titchmarsh and the Upper Nene valley from potential catastrophic industrial development.
Two large sites on the edge of the village of Titchmarsh have been targeted by developers. Their plans are to logistic centres and huge warehouses on what was greenfield farm land.
The first site, known as the Glebe Land covers approximately 144 acres. The Diocese of Peterborough sold a 10 year development option to IM Properties in early 2021 – one of the UK’s largest privately-owned investor developers.
The second site, known locally as Castle Manor Farm, is being managed by Newlands Developments. This massive 175 acre plot could soon be the site of 4 new warehouses standing almost 90 feet high.
An active campaign to fend off both developments is currently underway.
