300 More Houses in Eaton Bray
Posted on December 1, 2016
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
