Update on the Old "Netto" Site


The Old "Netto" Site in Houghton Regis' Cemetery Road was subject to a planning application on behalf of the new site owners, Morrisons.

The application in May 2014 was for "Demolition of existing supermarket and erection of new petrol filling station with sales kiosk and car wash facility" under application number CB/14/01934/FULL to Central Bedfordshire Council.

The application was refused planning permission on 23/04/2015 after the  Environment Agency raised concerns that storage tanks could cause an unacceptable risk of pollution.

The decision notice can be seen at CBC's website:

1) This site is located above a Principal Aquifer. Groundwater beneath the site is potentially shallow and the site is considered to be of high sensitivity. The proposed fuel storage presents potential pollutant linkages to controlled waters. Therefore, an assessment of potential contamination found in the proposed development site, an assessment of the pollutant linkages that the development could introduce and consideration for the risk posed by surface water drainage and foundations will need to be undertaken. 

Insufficient information has been submitted to demonstrate that the risk of pollution to controlled waters is acceptable:
1. The Environment Agency currently considers that the level of risk posed by this proposal is unacceptable.
2. The application fails to provide assurance that the risks of pollution are understood.

The proposal therefore fails to protect and prevent the pollution of controlled waters from potential pollutants associated with current and previous land uses contrary to National Planning Policy Framework, paragraphs 109,120 and 121, Environment Agency Groundwater Protection: Principles and Practice (GP3) and policies 44 and 49 of the Development Strategy for Central Bedfordshire: Revised Pre-submission Version June 2014."

Plans: http://www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/portal/searchresult.asp?appnumber=CB/14/01934

Update on the Old "Netto" Site - planning permission was declined for petrol station etc. in April. http://www.hrnd.co.uk/2015/06/update-on-old-netto-site.html

Sam Harry's Murderer : One of Two Main Suspects - But No Prosecution

Sam Harry died four days after catastrophic brain damage akin to being involved in a 60 mph crash. He was 20 months old.

Mirror Report
But who swung, or pushed him, with such a fateful force? His mother, Deanna Buffham or her new lover Ryan Bate? Chief prosecutors wrote, "One or both of them must have been responsible for [your son’s] ­injuries... it would not be possible to prosecute the suspects on a joint enterprise basis simply because we know that one of them must be guilty of the offence.”

So why are Buffham or Bate still not charged?

The child's father, Nick Harry, told the Daily Mirror this week, "They can’t charge them with joint enterprise because at various times both of them went out of the house. Even though the police know one of two people killed my son quite brutally we are unable to have any sort of justice. I want justice for my son and whoever did this to him needs to be punished.

"If the case went in front of a jury at least it would be up to them to decide.”

The Marl Lake is inside the Chalk Quarry.

"Houghton Regis Chalk Pit Nature reserve is of national importance for its wildlife and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Local Wildlife Site" starts a new leaflet advertising a new Angling Club in Houghton Regis. The marl lake offers freshwater fish: Rudd, Roach, Perch, Tench and Carp.

The Chalk Pit, off Houghton Road, and Lake View, is owned by St. Francis group and managed by The Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Northamptonshire.

Town Council Reject Orchard Close As The Town's Next Cemetery

Orchard Close Recreation ground as seen from Dog Kennel Down
alanwinter.lu5@gmail.com

Houghton Regis Town Council voted unanimously to accept the findings of a working group, and to no longer pursue Orchard Close Recreation Ground as the site for a future cemetery, at their meeting tonight (22nd June).

Instead they will seek land provision for a new cemetery within the HRN2 site (Bidwell West) where up to 1850 new homes and associated facilities are proposed (see Developments). There are no plans within the HRN2 site for a cemetery at present, although substantial recreational areas, orchards, and allotment sites are planned. The Town Council made objections to aspects of the HRN2 scheme earlier this year.

A working group of the Council, not open to the public, met on 11th June to discuss in detail the background to the earlier choice of the Orchard Close Recreation Ground, and the activity that had been done towards gauging its suitability. That meeting resolved the following:

1. To recommend to Town Council that Orchard Close no longer be pursued for a future cemetery;
2. To continue to make representations for cemetery land provision within HRN2;
3. To seek advice from CBC as to how to secure land north of the link road for a future cemetery should land not be forthcoming in HRN2.
4. To consider in  more detail layout and internment options for the existing cemetery;
5. To liaise with the Church on options to establish a memorial garden within the Churchyard.  

Site wide master plan for HRN2. Source: document within CB/15/00297 Planning Application. The site is bounded by Houghton Regis Chalk Quarry in the south, Bedford Road in the east, the new A5-M1 link road is the northern edge, the A5 Watling Street is in the west.

Revised Plans For 'Windy Willows' Site - Now 30 homes proposed instead of 59

alanwinter.lu5@gmail.com

An applicant is seeking permission to demolish a range of old buildings, and gain outline planning permission for 30 new homes. Situated to the north east of Houghton Regis, the land was once used as a Nursery Garden Centre. A prior indication was that 59 homes would have been built, but there were concerns over the suggested density.

The site has a chequered history of applications and enforcement notices against it. Being located within the green belt, accessed from a road that can be busy, and also being on the edge of the HRN1 site has made it difficult for a satisfactory scheme to come forward for the site.

The indicative layout provides for a mix of semi-detached and short terraced properties of two and two and a half story scale. 30% of the new homes would fall into the "affordable homes" category. Power lines make approximately 30% of the 1.6ha site undevelopable.

Plans:      30 new homes at the former Windy Willows nursery, Sundon Road

Town Council to Discuss Future Cemetery Provision, And Deployable CCTV

Orchard Close Recreation Ground: Recommendation to "No Longer Pursue" this as the town's next Cemetery


The Houghton Regis Town Council meet on Monday 22nd June at 7.30pm.

It will come as some relief to people living near Orchard Close, who have put up a continuous protest, that a recommendation to no longer pursue Orchard Close recreation ground is to be considered. The last Council contemplated, and started groundworks, to establish the viability of using Orchard Close Recreation Ground as a suitable location for the town's new cemetery. But it was later discovered that there were covenants on the land, reserving it for use as "open space for recreational use".  Instead, the recommendation is that they will pursue alternative sites including land north of Thorn Road.

Among other business to be discussed, is a scheme to provide a couple of redeployable CCTV cameras, and the sites in Houghton Regis where they might be located.

Members of the public are welcome to attend Council meetings, and 15 minutes is allocated at the start of each minute for public questions. An agenda can be downloaded from http://www.houghtonregis.org.uk/agendas .

Willow Trees At East End Get Short Back And Sides

As a precautionary measure, Houghton Regis Town Council put work in hand to make the willow trees opposite the Chequers, Houghton Regis, safer. The trees were attended to by contractors at the weekend.

A bough snapped off and fell into the road earlier this year.

Council To Ask Co-Op To Make Site Safe, And Secure

Photos: A D Winter, taken on 15 June 2015 at site of the former Co-op store

Concerns have been raised in Houghton Regis over the state of the demolition site in the centre of Houghton Regis Town Centre.

The site has gaps in the hoardings which make it easily accessible to anyone who might want to cause mischief. The site is still the responsibility of the the Co-op. Local ward CBC councillors were engaged by Houghton Regis News editor, Alan Winter, to ask the freeholders, Central Bedfordshire Council what they would do about the situation.

Alan said, "Children could get in and hurt themselves, or worse, an arsonist starts another fire. Debris is piled up in the centre of the site, and there are apparently some electrical works. It's a real concern."

Central Bedfordshire Council issued a statement today saying, "Although the Co-Operative store in the town centre has closed, the site is still in the control of the company.  We expect this to transfer to the Council  later this  summer but ahead of this, the Co-Op are responsible for clearing it and keeping it secure.  We are in contact with the company and understand that a hoarding that was previously damaged hoarding has now been replaced.  In view of the concerns expressed locally we will also contact the company again to remind them of their responsibilities to keep the site safe and secure."

Use Your Imagination To Think What Sound Would Best Represent Houghton Regis! #woodsidelink

The new Woodside Link (running from Porz Avenue roundabout in Houghton Regis to a new M1 motorway junction) will be the first UK road to have its own anthem, produced as a collaboration between local residents and artists Bettina Furnee & Marcus Leadley.


CONTRIBUTE!


1. CAPTURE THE SOUND
Using your mobile phone or other device, record a local sound which you think is representative of Houghton Regis - it could be bells of the church, people talking, children playing, birds whistling, someone getting out of a car, papers being shuffled in an office, an elderly man laughing, the sound of knitting, anything really, it's entirely up to you.

2. UPLOAD THE SOUND
The sound can then be uploaded to the sound project at https://centralbedfordshire.wufoo.com/forms/your-sound-from-houghton-regis-and-luton/ 

3. HEAR THE SOUND
Contributed sounds can be listened to on here: http://soundcloud.com/your-sound-from-houghton-regis-and-luton

Selected sounds will become part of a celebratory sound and image composition called Anthem for the Road, as part of the public art scheme commissioned by Central Bedfordshire Council. The running time of the sound will be 2 to 3 minutes. 


When the road is planned to open, in September 2016, the finished compositions will be visually represented as large scale soundwave paintings on the road's acoustic and retaining barriers.  The sound will be available free in various formats via websites, an app, CD, and possibly radio for a short time.

Learn more about the entire public art scheme at http://www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/woodsidelinkart

Questions about the Woodside Link can be sent to the designated CBC officer, Howard.Dobson@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk , alternatively contact your CBC councillor.

Monty Python's Spamalot At MK Theatre This Week!

One of the funniest West End theatre musical performances is on at Milton Keynes Theatre,  this week. 

Starring Joe Pasquale and Joe Tracini

Monty Python’s Spamalot gallops along to the sound of banging coconut shells.
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is a kind-of new musical with a book by Eric Idle and an entirely new score for the new production, (well, almost) created by Eric Idle and John Du Prez.


Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people. The show features fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and of course the Nation’s Favourite Comedy Song (Reader’s Digest Poll 2010 - before it went bust), Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.

Tickets from £10.50. Book here(Location Map)

Bidwell West Developers Agree to Make Up £12m Funding Gap For #WoodsideLink #HRN2

For larger image see: Link


alanwinter.lu5@gmail.com

In a document entitled "Statement of Very Special Circumstances Addendum" Bidwell West Consortium developers (the HRN2 developers) have agreed to fund up to £12 million to help construct the £38.3m Woodside Link, a project by Central Bedfordshire Council.

The document acknowledges that the cost of the Woodside link is about £42 million, and that the HRN1 developers contributed funding towards the A5-M1 link, but made no contribution to the Woodside Link, except to provide the land. To alleviate congestion as a consequence of the growth within the identified Houghton Regis North allocation, the HRN2 developers have agreed to provide funding for signalisation at the A5/A5-M1 Link roundabout and at the A5120/A5-M1 Link roundabout along with a contribution toward Woodside Link: "it is acknowledged that the development proposal represents the largest contributor to the growth of the HRN allocation after Site 1 and therefore is required to contribute a greater share commensurate to the scale of the development proposed. As such, it is identified that the development proposal can provide the required signalisation in totality along with a large proportion of the remaining cost of the shortfall toward the Woodside Link. "

When the Woodside Link scheme was announced the cost had been estimated at £42m, but had fallen to £38.3m when the contract was issued. See http://www.hrnd.co.uk/2015/04/council-award-contract-for-woodside.html - The South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) are contributing £20 million, the Government £5 million, local developers £1m.


Amendments in respect of Application CB/15/00297/OUT by Bidwell West Consortium have also been received by Central Bedfordshire Council. The amended items all have the word "REVISED" after them.  This is about detailed outline plans for Land west of Bidwell, and at Thorn, in the parish of Houghton Regis, to the north of the Houghton Regis Chalk Quarry.

The plans show the removal of some footpaths and bridleways, and the introduction of new bridlepaths footpaths and cycle routes. Bus stops and places for crossings are indicated. Open space and play areas are shown. Heights of buildings around the areas to be developed are also shown, along with landscaping, and proposals for a Primary School, a local centre, and land for community and leisure use including urban park, garden, orchards, allotments, and attenuation ponds. Detailed design codes are given.

Up to 1,850 homes are planned. Land to be developed would go right up to the edge of the quarry in the south, and have a green buffer abutting the edges of the Plaiters Way and Farriers Way existing developments. There will be variety in terms of the spacing of buildings, with continuous terraced houses and flats along the primary route and around open space; regularly spaced buildings in the centre of the character areas; and irregular spacing along the edges of green spaces.

Working names for the areas to be developed include, Lower Thorn Village, Upper Thorn Green, Park View Crescent, Bidwell Mews and Bluewater Heights. The "Design Code" documents give insights as to density and types of homes that will be located in these different areas.




Blue Waters Woodland

Blue Waters Woodland is outside of the area to be developed, but is in close proximity.

Comments on the proposals can be sent to planning@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk, or by post to Planning, Central Bedfordshire Council, Priory House, Monks Walk, Shefford, Bedfordshire, SG17 5TQ. Please quote CB/15/00297/OUT when writing.
