Land at the corner of The Rye and Totternhoe Rd

April 8, 2014 by unknown in forum Eaton Bray Parish Council

#2005 unknown, 8 April 2014, 13:09

I have heard that the new owners of Old Ley Farm are planning on putting in for planning permission on the above land and other land that is attached to the house, What are your views in this? In my opinion it is way to dangerous to have any access of the rye or totternhoe rd to accomadate any building planning permission. Also we have lost to much green bely land in the village already to houses.

Thought there was a 99 year uplift agreement with the council on this land (Council take a percentage of profit on future development).

I wouldn't be happy to see any houses there and I can see problems for the Rye.

#2188 Bernie, 11 November 2014, 09:00

There is an archaeological survey going on at Ley Farm as I post.

Working on the principal of 150 average family homes with parents and 2.4 children (knock the .4 off) that would come to 300 adults 300 kids.
Not sure the school could take it.

Plan shows a car park at the bottom of my garden.
Taking the p really as there is nowhere to park out the front.

#2215 Ruth , 14 December 2014, 12:00

I don't know  what you are worried about.  According to the Planning Statement there will be 'minimal impact on the wider landscape, including the openness of the Green Belt'.  So 150 houses and two new roads will hardly be noticed!  Also I never realised that the A41 runs through the centre of the village!
(Planning Statement).

#2216 Roy , 14 December 2014, 19:11

Bernie, maybe you could some maths along the same lines as your calculation for the number of school children but for sewage effluent to give it a polite name. As the sewers don't cope now, what chance with an extra 150 houses?

#2217 Bernie, 15 December 2014, 05:25

Not knowing the habits of others as I do my own it would not be possible to calculate even with my math skills.
More interested at the moment with the sewage effluent being created by Amberville Propertys.

#2218 Roy , 15 December 2014, 18:56

Amusing myself studying the proposed layout..... There are 5 private entrances onto Totternhoe Rd and The Rye between the two main access roads. Are they serious? On that corner!

#2219 Bernie, 16 December 2014, 07:51

Planning Statement.
Lies Lies and more Lies

Template Objection Letter

#2221 Nigel, 16 December 2014, 10:35

We applied to build a house up dyers lane but were turned down because it was a dangerous corner. But it will be ok for the minimum of 150 cars to come out on the other side won!t it ?.

#2225 Bernie, 16 December 2014, 16:40

Email reply from Andrew Selous stating that he is absolutely against buildind 150 houses in Eaton Bray and has written to CBC to pass on his views.

#2226 Bernie, 18 December 2014, 14:52

If anybody is around the village on Saturday it may be worth taking a camera.
As its Christmas black bins are being collected on Saturday instead of Monday.
Send all photos to CBC. Could help with stopping development with a traffic jam or two.

#2227 Neil, 22 December 2014, 19:59

Thanks for the letter Mark. Link worked and letter has been completed, signed and will be ready for sending.

#2228 Nigel, 25 December 2014, 17:41

Just seen a larger version of the map and can see at least 3 driveways leading into Totternhoe Rd as well as a new access road.

#2241 Stu, 9 January 2015, 09:43

My objection letter was sent off Monday morning.
We moved to Eaton Bray because it's a small lovely village... The thought of them doing mass developments around here is very concerning.
