The propsed development is far too large in comparison to the village of Aspley Guise & would treble the population of the area & increase traffic enormously completly transforming the character of the area in & around the village

Full text:

The scale of the proposed building of 3000 homes north of Aspley Guise would treble the population around the area of the village completely transforming the character of the area from a rural village community to an urban extension of Milton Keynes.This is yet again an example of councils & developers only being concerned with the delivery of target housing numbers & profit with a complete disregard of the wishes & feelings of exsiting residents of the area who have chosen to live in a rural village enviroment and have in many cases moved out of the sort of urbanisation which now threatens to dominate the area.In my opinion developments of this scale should be built on the outskirts of larger towns which offer better employment & social amenities for that ammount of new residents

Aspley Triangle - Traffic issues, increased congestion, need of a buffer between Aspley Guise and the growth location.

Full text:

I live in Aspley Guise and I find your on-line registration consultation platform overly complicated having to select & click through several options. And terminology that may make sense to planners but not to your voters who vote you into office to represent us! Therefore I am emailing to put forward my views particularly the 3k homes you put forward north of Aspley Guise railway. if you build 3-5,000 new homes north of Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands you must absolutely not allow the traffic which will be monumental - if each home has just 1 car it's 5k vehicles and most have 2 cars per household. You cannot allow this traffic to flow through Aspley Guise, especially via Salford Road. It is absolutely imperative that you plan & build a new access road for all these new homes to take them to CMK & not allow access through Aspley Guise and Husborne Crawley. I would also plead for a buffer zone if green belt between Aspley Guise and the 3k homes north of railway. Please take account of my view - I have been a resident of Salford Road Aspley Guise for 10 years so am speaking from real life experience and not a plan on paper in a distant part of the county that seems to forget we pay our taxes to CBC but are totally ignored when it comes to you addressing the horrendous traffic issues that currently make daily travel a real headache

I am extremely concerned that the Aspley Guise triangle development would lead to a massive increase in local traffic. In addition the developments proposed near Marston will also have a huge impact on traffic flows as most of the journeys will be to and from Milton Keynes. This is far too many houses in such a small area. We need to keep some green space between Bedfordshire villages and Milton Keynes urban sprawl.

Ref.NLP463 .
Has any thought been given to the fact that these new villages will suffer from air and noise pollution from the M1 , A421 and possibly the East-West Expressway .
Surely the planning of these developments must wait until the route of the East-West Expressway has been decided !!!
Unfortunately it looks like the plan is for an urban sprawl connecting Milton Keynes to Bedford , not impressed !!!!

Aspley Guise Triangle

Concerns re:
Additional traffic, having to pass through Aspley Guise
Aspley Guise is a small village, traffic and parking already an issue at the square, further development brings increased danger
Appreciate need for housing but not in areas that can't sustain the impact

Full text:

I am writing to express my of concern over the the potential 3000 new homes to the north of Aspley Guise, bordering the A421.

There is no doubt that traffic from these homes will need to pass through Aspley Guise, either from the A421 through the village square or over the railway crossing to the village square.

Aspley Guise is a small village, and the traffic around the square is already a concern, due to parked cars and blind corners, when turning right out of Woburn Lane. Increasing the amount of traffic through the village will only add to the danger that exiting this junction brings, and will cause accidents.

I appreciate housing needs to be built, but not in areas that cant sustain the impact it brings.

Aspley Guise Triangle is valuable agricultural land with diverse wildlife, and is not as stated entirely owned by developers. Road connections are not good, in particular Salford Road, Cranfield Road and the A421

Aspley Triangle - no growth along the A507 around Ridgmont, boundary will preserve the open countryside and retain green space, increased traffic problems from employment proposals at Junction 13.

Full text:

As a resident of Ridgmont I think the proposed growth of a series of new villages in Marston Vale is a positive way of delivering housing in the Marston Vale although I feel that there should no growth along the A507 around Ridgmont (up to the railway line)
The proposed boundary will preserve the open countryside and retain vital green space I think that the draft plan accepts the area of land alongside the A507 contains many ancient footpaths, and bridleways and also the Green Sand Ridge which should be preserved.
I do not support the proposal for more industrial units at Junction 13 because of the increased in traffic which needs to be assessed.

The site has been excluded from consideration on Green Belt grounds alone. As with the Settlements Capacity Study - consideration should be given to the suitability of the site assuming no Green Belt designation. For those sites that would otherwise be suitable, consideration should then be given to the performance of the Green Belt in those locations against the 5 purposes referred to in NPPF para 80

The assessment suggests that the site does not fulfil the exceptional circumstances criteria but the basis for this assessment is not explained.
