With reference to the Development Consultation on the 21st November 2017, the Parish Council would like to make the following statement in response to many comments received:
The Parish Council have not failed to keep the village informed. This whole matter only came to our attention following initial contact from Lioncourt on 12th October 2017 and was discussed at our next meeting on November 8th. Between these dates a closed meeting with Lioncourt occurred, which was the first time we had any inkling that they were proposing such a large development. We agree with you their plans and formative application should be rejected, amongst many reasons, for contravening the Borough’s stated AD42 policy which protects the land separating Bromham and Biddenham.
Our chairman’s write up for the Biddenham Loop of our last council meeting will contain a significant section on this matter. His articles are also available on this website under Parish Council / Council Documents / Chairman’s Report.
Note also at this stage no formal planning application has been submitted by Lioncourt to the Bedford Borough Council.
