Parish council's view is likely to be overruled
Posted on October 10, 2006
Outline plans to develop land next to 23-25 Bower Lane, Eaton Bray, look likely to ge the go-ahead, despite objections from the parish council and some neighbours.
Objections include that the proposed development would have a detrimental effect on nearby homes and would lead to unacceptable and dangerous kerbside parking.
The scheme is set to be considered at a meeting of South Beds District Council's planning committee tomorrow (Wednesday 11th) when councillors are expected to be influenced by a planning officer's report recommending approval.
This advises: "It is not considered that the development of an overgrown parcel of land would result in the loss of open space of recreational or amenity value and it is considered that the site is capable of accommodating a residential development in a manner that would be an efficient use of land, would respect and enhance the character of the surrounding area and would preserve and provide adequate amenity for residents."
