Traffic & New settlements

THINK TRAFFIC IS BAD ALREADY?

NEW TOWNS ARE PROPOSED TO THE NORTH OF BEDFORD

THEREFORE MORE TRAFFIC ON THE A6 AND OUR RURAL ROADS

Bedford Borough Council is preparing a Local Plan that will decide on housing growth in the period to 2035.

The Mayor is considering proposals for New Towns at:

Twinwoods (Nr. Clapham) – 6,000 houses

Thurleigh Airfield – 5,250 houses

Lee Farm in Sharnbrook – 4,500 houses

          The smallest of these is larger than Ampthill (3,800 homes)

Consultants calculate that each new Town will generate between

16,000 and 20,000 extra vehicle trips per day by 2035, of which

around 50% will be coming along the A6 to Bedford and through our villages

It will be the Mayor and his Executive Committee that make this decision. 

Lobby them now and persuade them to think again about the location of new towns!
