Emergency Meeting of Eaton Bray Parish Council, Tuesday 27th March 2018, 7:30pm
I hereby give notice of an emergency meeting of Eaton Bray Parish Council to be held at The Coffee Tavern on Tuesday 27th March 2018 at 7:30pm.
Item for discussion: Sale of 35 High Street, Eaton Bray
The next Parish Council meeting to be held at the Coffee Tavern on Monday 5th March 2018 at 7.30pm.
The full Minutes for 5th February 2018 are also now available.
Work on our Neighbourhood Plan has gone backwards over the past month. We will explain what has happened.
Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) issued their Draft Local Plan in July last year. We analysed the documents and the main issue from Eaton Bray's stand point was that the Green Belt would remain unaltered around Eaton Bray. We commented on this in our Article in September's Focus. This Draft Local Plan was positive news as the majority of Eaton Bray residents wanted to maintain the Green Belt on its current boundaries.
On 11th January 2018 CBC published the next iteration of the Local Plan but unfortunately there was a surprise, CBC had allocated land behind Eaton Park for development! 49 houses in the Green Belt. Residents throughout Eaton Bray are dismayed, we wrote to the Head of Planning at CBC and to our Local MP Andrew Selous, but we appear to have little or no influence. Pressing on, we will comment upon the Local Plan, we have made our objections known, and will attend the Planning Committee meeting that can pass or refuse the Planning Application at Eaton Park. The NP Steering Group is supporting the wishes of the residents of Eaton Bray and we should know the result over the next month or so.
There's plenty ahead to brighten your spirits after the winter gloom - daffodils, ducklings, daylight and the divine Danesborough Chorus, which will perform its next concert on Saturday 3 March 2018, 7.30 pm, at St Mary's Church, Woburn.
This concert will feature four contrasting choral gems composed by Rheinberger, Sullivan (of Gilbert and Sullivan fame), Britten and Tippett, taking the audience on a musical journey from the Victorian era to mid 20th century .
