Village hit by ‘stinker’ of another housing plan

A plan for 400 houses on the other side of the Leighton Buzzard Road has been received by Dacorum Council. Documents lodged with the planning dept show a large development between Galley Hill and the Pumping Station.

Residents Association secretary Michael Nidd says the plan is not a planning application but a ‘scoping document’ to test the temperature. In other words, how will the council and local residents react to it. 

‘It’s currently grazing land, and would, if granted, further encircle Piccotts End,’ said Mr Nidd. ‘It’s a stinker.’

The plan has been submitted by Fairfax Strategic (Hemel Hempstead), a company based in Sussex. Further details can be viewed here.
