Say No to New Tempsford but yes to additional village style developments which would complement existing rural living in this area, not kill it off.

Full text:

NLP452 - I fully understand that additional housing is required to meet government targets but the amount of development proposed here is disproportional to other developments within CBC area and across the county. This area is prone to localised flooding and developing the site will only make the problem worse even if mitigating controls are considered by the developers. The flood plain on the map does not accurately reflect the extent of flooding when it occurs.
In addition, the proximity of the planned development to Everton village (which has small village status) will spell the end of rural living within this area, which is the main reason why residents in the village choose to live here. I recognise that development is required, and the addition of perhaps 2 villages within that space of similar size to existing villages in the area, where existing resources can be shared, supported and enhanced, rather than killed off as a result of central town developments where additional resources need to be funded and resourced.
We have already seen promised new town developments within Bedfordshire, new houses, new schools, public transport resources, surgeries etc that haven't worked out - such as Wixams. Please don't make New Tempsford CBC's white elephant.

This development puts at risk a site of national historical importance and shows no detial at all on how Gibraltar Farm will be protected or preserved. Shameful.

Full text:

I am writing to contribute to the consultation of the local plan. I would like to object to the development of a new town in Tempsford for the following reasons:

1. I believe this will cause detriment to the nationally significant RAF Tempsford site and the structure known as Gibraltar Farm within this site.


My reasons for these objections are below:


1. Detriment to the RAF Tempsford site, incorporating Gibraltar Barn.

RAF Tempsford and Gibraltar Barn are nationally significant historic sites. While Gibraltar Barn is listed, the development of a new town close to it puts it in an incredible amount of danger.

The Local Plan contains no information about how the barn will be protected, nor how it will fit into such a development. Increased traffic and people close to the barn put it at a severe risk of damage from vandals, from pollution and more besides.

Gibraltar Farm, as I'm sure you will know, is the heart of the former RAF Tempsford. Men and women flew from this site to their deaths all to serve their country. To treat such a monument with such breathtaking disrespect is absolutely shameful. The actions of those who flew from Tempsford shortened the war by two years, it's said. Hitler himself was even aware of RAF Tempsford and sent men over to find and destroy it!

For some of these SOE women, Tempsford was the last place they set foot on English soil before flying off to fight for this country. They flew from Tempsford and ended their days with torture, with a bullet to the back of the neck, and being thrown like rubbish into the ovens of the concentration camps at places like Ravensbruck. Is this how we repay that sacrifice? By making this key part of British history an afterthought in a new housing estate?

I want you to guarantee that Gibraltar Barn will be treated with care and respect. Why not use this historic place as a museum? As a place people can come and learn about the important role Tempsford played in the war? The money it generated would more than pay for its upkeep.

I fear that if you do not take steps to protect this incredibly historically valuable building now, there will be a great outcry of protest in the future. There are many national groups, and indeed international groups, who will be extremely vocal in their condemnation of any action you take that is not in the best interests of Gibraltar Farm. Given its importance, there will be press interest and potentially interest from governmental departments. I fear that a great amount of resource will be needed to undo any ill-advised steps you make now, and that would negatively affect the people of Central Bedfordshire.

I don't believe site NLP450 (Tempsford Airfield) is suitable because it dwarfs the existing village settlements of Tempsford and Everton. The development would effectively create a massive new town subsuming the villages of Everton and Tempsford.

The north and northeast areas of Central Bedfordshire have already had too much housing development.

Massive housing development sites should be spready equally around Central Beds.

Tempsford Airfield is a WW2 site of special interest which should be preserved.

The area is exceptionally good agricultural land which should be used for agricultural purposes. Areas of lesser agricultural use (e.g. Brown field sites) should be prioritised for massive urban development.

Villages should be preserved as villages. Residents live in tvillages because they like and enjoy village life. Villages should NOT be subsumed into new towns.

The proposal is poorly thought out. It is imperative that the plans for the A1 upgrade, east-west rail link and other infrastructure, is put in place BEFORE any plans for additional major housing developments.

Full text:

NLP452 Land south of Tempsford

The consultation appraisal states that any development in this area is an "infrastructure led" opportunity but the infrastructure does not yet exist.

This development would only make worse the already intolerable situation with regard to the A1. Existing problems include traffic flow, local commuter parking problems, and health & educational services resources.

Development should not be considered until after the capacity of the A1 throughout the non-motorway stretch from Baldock to Alconbury is improved, hopefully with a bypass, or some other safe and effective means.

There is no definite timescale for the provision of the east-west railway, nor has there been any local consultation on a possible route, how much land would be required, and where, so it is quite impossible to design a new settlement around an unknown location for the railway.

Assumption that the East-West railway will go ahead and through this development - both appear to rely in the provision of each other to make them viable. It's a chicken and egg proposal and makes no sense at all.

Have Network Rail been consulted and are they agreeable to the disruption caused by the construction of a bridged crossing or underpass, or the timescale involved in such work, which must be completed before construction traffic can enter the area.

There does not appear to have been any investigation of the impact of the new development upon the social infrastructure of Sandy, Everton and Tempsford in respect of medical, educational and recreational facilities, nor the physical interaction with these settlements.

No consideration appears to have been given to the protection of the unique characters of the settlements dangerously close to coalescence with a new town, nor the preservation of their unique landscaped settings.

There is no publicly available evidence that water, gas, electricity and telecommunications infrastructure has the capacity to serve a massive increase in population in this area, especially taking into account of proposed development immediately to the north in the St Neots area.

Very little consideration appears to have been given to the unique and nationally important historical significance of Tempsford Airfield.

While the area would address the requirement to meet housing figures, what consideration has been given to local requirements related to new household formation. Development in this location will, for example, be of little benefit to newly formed households in Luton or Dunstable, as too remote from

Drainage and potential for flooding - the flood plain from the river has been referenced within the assessment but not the run off from Tempsford Hill which has caused flooding issues in the past.

Additional impact of air pollution in this area (already considerable due to levels of traffic using the A1), additional building and commuter travel to potential rail station will increase traffic in proposed densely populated area.

Impact on local farmers, job losses, reduction in fresh food production due to loss of agricultural land.

Impact on rural businesses (pubs, shops) if town built within close proximity to local villages.

The land for this development borders the boundary of the local Everton Lower/Primary School. This school is due for expansion from Lower to Primary status in 2017. The school therefore would greatly benefit from the opportunity to expand it's land area as the school's needs grow. By building more houses up to the only boundary where the school can expand, it will effectively "land lock" the school and prevent any expansion. A buffer zone taking into account the school's likely expansion needs should be created. Therefore a new planning application should be made after consultation with the school's Governors.

This new development, while likely being separated from Sandy to the South by a small amount of trees or open space, is bound over time to become an extension to Sandy and result in two joined-together towns similar to Ampthill & Flitwick. The result will be a conurbation combining Sandy, Everton & Tempsford that will effectively spoil an even larger area of the countryside. This will have a huge negative effect on surrounding countryside and communities.

The 'Appendix B Area Assessment' of the Local Plan for Tempsford notes that 'development at this scale would be likely to have a detrimental impact on the rural character and appearance' and that 'Development is further constrained by the abundance of Priority Habitats and best and most versatile agricultural land in the west of the settlement, as well as sensitive heritage settings.'. These both seem to be at odds with the objective to limit the impact of the development on the countryside and to use brownfield sites.

The character of this part of Central Bedfordshire will be hugely, irreversibly and detrimentally changed, against the wishes of local residents.

NLP450 - I object for the following reasons:

This is a rural community with close links to the Greensand Ridge landscape which will be forever altered if the planned development on this scale goes ahead. The infrastructure upon which it will rely is still under discussion and hasn't even reached consultation stage so the proposals around development on this scale are premature and ill conceived.
Tempsford Airfield has a historic significance which continues to be recognised today by the military and is clearly evidenced by the dipping of aircraft wings whenever military aircraft pass this way (a common occurrence given the proximity of Shuttleworth, Duxford and RAF sites). Development on this site would be an insult to those who bravely gave their lives during WWII.
The potential for flooding assessment references an environmental agency map which was last reviewed in 2004 - it is outdated and doesn't take into account the additional risk of flooding that would occur following development of this land nor the additional run off of water from Tempsford Hill which causes localised flooding on a regular basis.
The area makrked for development is made up of prime agricultural land and green spaces that are natural habitat for many species of wildlife including muntjac deer, spotted flycatchers and, we believe, nightingales. An in depth ecological study must be undertaken to ensure that the natural habitats of these animals remain undisturbed by any development.
While I would be accepting of a development in keeping with the rural nature of this area (i.e. addition of more small villages) the additional 4,000 - 10,000 new homes (depending on who's report you read) is just totally uncalled for and goes way beyond the remit required of Central Beds for new houses. It's not a case of not in our backyard, more just not so much, especially when towns that could integrate additional capacity already exist within Central Beds along the Oxford Cambridge corridor.

Full text:

ALP094 - The land proposed is currently accessed via Green Lanes, a single track private road which is currently under review with rights of way committee to determine a public footpath route. It is not, in my opinion, an acceptable access route for either construction traffic or the additional traffic that will be created through the addition of these homes. Green Lanes is bordered by a holly hedge which was mentioned in the Domesday book and is home to many nesting birds - any proposed development onsite here should ensure the protection of this hedge which is of historic significance.
The land borders the school which may be an issue ff the school wish to expand and develop in years to come, quite likely a necessity given the proposed local development plans and the school's recent successful move to achieve primary status. Any development on this site should ensure that land is ring fenced for school expansion use in years to come and s106 monies be ring fenced to assist the school in this respect.
Everton has small village status and therefore any additional housing (as previously agreed with CBC planners) should be identified via a housing needs survey, no such survey has been undertaken on this occasion. Everton has poor water pressure at present and the addition of new homes within the village will further strain the utilities which struggle to cope.

Green Lanes is bordered by a holly hedge which was mentioned in the Domesday book and is home to many nesting birds - any proposed development onsite here should ensure the protection of this hedge which is of historic significance.
The village primary school is located to the rear of this land and its' privacy shouldn't be impacted by the building of new homes (it is currently not overlooked). The school will be looking to expand and develop in years to come, especially if proposed local development plans come to fruition.

It is wrong to refer to Tempsford Airfield as brownfield land. The definition of brownfield land within Annex 2 of the National Policy Planning Framework - as referenced by your own Site Assessment Technical Document paragraph 5.3.3 - excludes "land that was previously-developed but where the remains of the permanent structure or fixed surface structure have blended into the landscape in the process of time." This is undeniably the case at Tempsford where there is no visible impact of the previous development and the site is unspoilt countryside. This document for Everton marks as 'Red' the fact that less than 25% of the site forms previously developed land anyway - it is simply misleading and dishonest to justify this development based on it being on brownfield land.
