Novelist Jilly Cooper has joined a campaign to stop two new town developments in the Costwolds, reports The Times (p9).

The developments at Standish near Stroud, and Boddington near Tewkesbury, form part of Gloucestershire CC's plan to provide 53,000 new homes in the county by 2011.

The Times also reports on yesterday's court decision allowing the go-ahead for Uttlesford DC's plans for 2,500 homes to house expanding Stansted Airport's growing workforce.

Council leader Alan Dean said he was relieved that after six years of wrangling the council could push on with implementing its scheme.
