Biddenham Toddler Parents Object to Gold Lane development

On Thursday 8th February 2018, parents of Biddenham toddlers Club were asked to object to the new planning application West of Gold Lane. The event took place at the village hall where Joe Warren  handed out simple objection letters for the proposal. There was a a lot of concern about the housing development and infrastructure supporting it with some people still unaware of it!

Again as with other workshops the response was enthusiastic and multiple letters were busily filled in. All present at the event objected to the proposals. The final counts were:-

The planning application 18/00140/MAO (14 signatures)
Policy 19, (15 signatures)
Policy 23, (15 signatures)

There is still some distance to go in order to get more signatures in place. The Parish Council would urge all people who are concerned about the preservation of the village to take immediate action and make their objections count.
