A plan that would complete the development of Little Stanion was approved by borough councillors.

It's an outline planning application for between 99 and 135 homes for a four hectare site that's already been cleared.

A report for councillors says development of Little Stanion was stalled by builders going into administration following  the financial crash of the late 2000s.
