The Eco Town Proposal

The Proposal



  • predominately to be built on ‘Greenfield’ land 
  • 16,000+ new dwellings – houses + flats up to 6 storeys high (Marston Moretaine including Sheltons is currently just 1,900 houses) 
  • lack of new local jobs – just more commuters 
  • congestion from 22,000+ extra cars 
  • a sprawl of houses from Brogborough all the way to Bedford



The Local Impact 



  • Government imposed URBAN living 
  • irreversible development of greenfield land 
  • loss of local farming and jobs 
  • erosion of village communities 
  • increased traffic, noise, pollution and crime
