Woodside Link Consultation

An A3 leaflet will be delivered shortly to all properties within Houghton Regis and Dunstable consulting on the Woodside link. The consultation will also include 6 exhibitions, when members of the project team will be available.

Friday, 16th November 2pm to 5.30pm - Houghton Regis Library
Saturday, 17th November (10am to 1pm) - Houghton Regis Library
Tuesday 20th November (3pm to 7pm) - Chalton Village Hall
Wednesday 21st November (3pm to 7pm) - Sundon Village Hall

The outline proposal includes an optional connecting road to the bottom of Parkside Drive.
Liberal Democrat Parkside town councillor, Alan Winter, "Do local residents want a connection here? Many will not welcome this intrusion into the quiet road they have now. Others will think it will be a great opportunity to not have to drive around the estate to get out. This consultation will be an opportunity local residents should not pass pass idly by."

possible future link. This would connect to the main route by a priority junction."
