Councillors in Cambridgeshire have voted to move forward with a controversial plan to build up to 9,000 homes near Waterbeach in Cambridgeshire.
Campaigners argued the development around the former army barracks site would destroy the countryside and put a strain on local services and roads.
But South Cambridgeshire District Council says it would provide much needed housing and is part of a local plan designed to meet growing demand in the area.
The vote means the proposals will go to the next stage of the planning process.
