Arriva's New Services for Houghton Regis



New bus services for Houghton Regis are set to start on 31st August, a spokesperson for Arriva has said.

The company's earlier plans (see item) to stop the 38 serving Parkside and Tithe Farm have been scrapped. The earlier plans were changed after readers of Houghton Regis News Desk complained about hardships that people would have had to endure in getting to places like Wheatfield Road surgery, the L & D hospital, or to local Academies.
  
The new 38/39/38A timetable can be downloaded here

The new "A" timetable can be downloaded here.


In summary:

A – remains the same route, improved evening service on Mondays to Saturdays with buses running every 30 minutes.  Late night journeys to the airport arriving after 11pm have been removed but the link from the station can be made using 757. 
Direct journeys back to Houghton Regis from the airport can be made Mon-Fri starting at 05:10 through to 23:12. 
Direct journeys from Houghton Regis to the airport can be made Mon-Fri starting at 05:22 through to 22:30.
Weekend journeys are also possible, starting at a slightly later time.

37 – Withdrawn

38 – continues as now Monday – Saturday daytimes on a 30 minute frequency but no longer serves the Dog & Duck loop on any journey

38A – will operate Monday to Saturday evenings (roughly, after 8pm) and Sundays and will omit Parkside and Tithe Farm Road.

39 –  new route which will interwork with the 38.  39 will operate every 30 minutes between Dog & Duck, Parkside and Luton.  The 39 will not serve Dunstable.


Flytippers Warned of Serious Fines If They Continue

Bromley Gardens, Houghton Regis
Flytipping in Bromley Gardens, Houghton Regis has become a serious problem according to some local residents. A concerned resident has said, "We have repeated rubbish dumping by the garages near my house. Almost weekly a large collection of rubbish appears and is seems to be added to by the residents. A van appears to collect it once it's reported, but it's an eyesore, and is dangerous in the meantime."

A Luton man was successfully prosecuted by Central Bedfordshire Council under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 earlier this month {details  link*} and had to pay over £1200 in fines and costs.

A statement on Central Bedfordshire Council's website states: "Fly-tipping is a serious environmental problem and can pollute the land it is on and any nearby waterways. Flytips make an area look neglected and spoilt, they also attract vermin such as rats and other pests. The sooner we hear from you on 0300 300 8302, the better."

Dunstable School Closures Confirmed

Dunstable's Ashton and Streetfield Middle Schools will close in August 2016, and Brewers Hill Middle School will close in August 2017. The closure of the three schools will happen on a phased basis in a way that ensures the least possible disruption to pupils.

Central Bedfordshire Council’s proposals to close each school were as a result of the falling pupil numbers in each of the schools.

Parents who have concerns relating to school admission issues can contact the Council’s Admissions Team on 0300 300 8037 or by email to admissions@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk
