PUBLISHED: 16:24 06 August 2018 | UPDATED: 16:24 06 August 2018 John Elworthy Kennett Garden project Archant Highways England and Network Rail are among holding objections to East Cambridgeshire Council owned Palace Green Homes that wants to create a new garden village at Kennett with 500 homes, a care home for the elderly, a business park and shops.
