Central Beds Council will publish the draft version of their Local Plan in December 2016.. This will set out the additional development, in 3 categories (residential, employment and traveller sites), that they are looking to implement by 2030.

Landowners in Eaton Bray have submitted a greater acreage of sites than all the other villages in the near vicinity combined. Eaton Bray Parish Council have been advised by CBC that they expect 150-300 more houses to be built in Eaton Bray.

Given that there are currently just under 1200 dwellings in the village, 300 more would be an increase of 25%. All the proposed sites lie in the area from Bower Lane to The Rye inclusive. Residents need to consider the impact on:

  • Roads and traffic
  • Foul and surface water drainage
  • Capacity for additional electricity and gas supply, water supply, telephone and broadband connections
  • School places and GP services
  • The consequent effect of all the above on property values

Anyone who objects to these proposals should:

  • Lobby their CBC Ward Councillor, Ken Janes (01582-601317)
  • Lobby EB Parish Council
  • Attend a CBC meeting on 26 January 2017 2.30 to 7.30pm, venue to be advised
