In Newmarket, the "racing community is celebrating after Lord Derby's highly controversial Hatchfield Farm development was rejected at a Forest Heath District Council meeting" overnight, reported racingpost.com. The 12 councillors voted unanimously to reject the plan "which would have resulted in the building of up to 1,200 new houses, a hotel & shops & restaurants on the Hatchfield Farm site". Opponents within Newmarket's training & breeding community "feared the development & the pressure put on the town's infrastructure could threaten the industry's future".
