Flitwick/ Ampthill needs an affordable supermarket e.g a Lidl of Aldi, especially with all the new homes being built, a poor Tesco and an overpriced Waitrose is just not good enough. Discounter would be delighted to open up in area, give them a chance and over stretched family's will be able to have a choice . I talk to many people in the community and they all feel the same, but as usual do nothing about it.

These were a series of representations for different sizes of sites at Ampthill Grange. The development of the whole or part of the site would not lead to coalescence. Sufficient Green Belt exists that Coalescence would not be provided.

These sites can be considered together for a strategic proposal for a mixed development.

Neither site is within designated areas and could offer a low impact and sustainable development site across the two parcels of land.

An ideal and sustainable location for a small scale frontage infill development that would minimise traffic generation through the town centre.

Full text:

NLP197
The site is in an ideal location for sustainable development, with good access to the schools and services locally, in Ampthill.

Whilst physically the site might support up to 30 dwellings a development of around 10 dwellings would be a better 'fit' for the street scene and the more typical linear nature of the settlement. A development in this location would limit traffic congestion in the town centre and could provide off road parking.

Development in this location avoids the Conservation Area and causing significant character change to Ampthill.

The site adjoins the settlement envelope but is not within the Conservation Area. The site offers a discreet development opportunity without significantly affecting views into the town and would have a very limited impact, if any, on the setting of heritage assets.

The proposal is between existing built residential development which effectively screens the site from heritage assets and a small frontage scheme in this location would have a limited if any impact on heritage setting.

Preliminary desk based archaeological, ecological and landscape assessments demonstrate that there are no significant constraints to development on this site.

The scale of development proposed indicates that highway and services issues should not act as constraints to development.

The site has no known constraints and offers development with a good relationship to the existing linear development at this point in the settlement.

This site presents an opportunity for development away form the town centre avoiding traffic congestion and additional car parking issues. Whilst the land is Green Belt it is a logical extension to the town on medium quality agricultural land and is close to services and facilities in the town including schools and shops.

NLP387 - Ampthill

Suggestion for a Park and Ride on the site and recreation facilities,
Could also provide sports facilities

Full text:

Appendix D
NLP 387. This was a site suggested for a Park and Ride and recreation facilities. It is a site that is in close proximity to Ampthill and Flitwick and irrespective of the potential for a Park and Ride it could provide recreational facilities. The land is close to Ampthill and this site could provide needed or additional sports facilities if required for existing, replacement or as an enhancement for the community.

Scoping work is due to commence to consider hub arrangements in each of the above localities. It is anticipated that planning for these facilities can consider the need to accommodate this
additional growth, should it come forwards. Therefore a financial contribution to support the provision of healthcare facilities for this additional capacity would be required.
