PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT OF LAND TO SOUTH OF A603
A pubic meeting was called by the Parish Council and held on the 10th April 2017.
Some comprehensive notes were made by a member writing purely as a private individual for our information and there are links to other relevant Central Beds Council documents.
ASTERBY & CHALKCROFT NURSERY
Eva and Simon Aldridge are to seek planning permission to build some houses on their land at the Nursery. They have proposed that they will make a donation to the Village Hall to develop the car park if they can get planning permission with the support of parishioners.
They outlined their proposal at an open meeting held in the Village Hall on 9 September 14.
“With village support for our redevelopment, we can fund the necessary £50,000 to build the car park say within 9 months, after planning permission approval as part of the development cost.”

As yet no planning application has been registered.
Update Nov. 2015: An application has been presented and refused by CBC at the DMC meeting.
REMOVAL OF HEDGE IN CHALTON
On 12 September 2014 residents in Chalton were disturbed by the noise of a JCB digger close to 36 and 38 Blunham Road. On investigation it was found that the entire hedgerow and trees that were in place along the southern boundary of Blunham Road between the Hollington’s property at 36 and the Wyatt’s property at 38 had been uprooted and completely destroyed. It is said that the field behind the hedge has been purchased by the Anderson family but it is not yet known what their intentions are. The field connects with the builder’s yard owned by Stephen Anderson behind 26 and 28 Blunham which has been the subject of recent planning applications.
Central Bedfordshire Council has looked into the matter and their Tree and Landscape officer has visited the site and confirmed that a historic hedgerow had been removed, and that the owner is now required to plant a replacement. The hedge has since been replanted.
RA ANDERSON & SONS

There have been many Planning Applications made by RA Anderson & Sons Ltd over the years some of which have been the subject of Planning Conditions. There have also been Enforcement notices issued. We do not have full details but we take up the story at the stage of the Public Enquiry convened to consider the appeals made against three Enforcement Notices which had been issued by CBC in late 2013.
