MMAG draws the line over additional new housing development

MMAG have recently written to Richard Carr, Chief Executive of Central Bedfordshire Council to oppose a new development site potentially getting the green light before the first house on Marston Park is even built – Click Here to view letter

The site allocation at Moreteyen Farm for land behind the Little Chef could be started for large scale house building next year despite the fact that Marston Park, which will increase the size of the village by about a third, has only just begun and will be in development for several years. 

MMAG argues that sustainable development does not encircle a village with new house building causing major disruption for years and loading pressure on stretched infrastructure like roads, doctors, schools etc. The village needs to be allowed to absorb new development and manage infrastructure issues in a meaingful way.
