THE  10.06  TO  12.06  BUSES  WILL  NOT  BE  RUNNING  










Wavendon Properties resubmission of application for 203 units north of Cranfield Road.  Ref. 17/00130/OUT

This is an unchanged application from the one recently refused by MKC.  It aims to get reheard by Development Control.  All previous letters will NOT count, so please rewrite as before. 

 Wavendon Properties have now submitted a second application

17/00409/OUT to MKC for 304 units, and they have lodged an Appeal against the earlier refusal of permission for 203 units.

This makes the whole process very confusing but it is likely the resubmitted application for 203 homes and the new one for 304 units will be dealt with simultaneously by MKC. Watch this space for further information.




A planning application is with Milton Keynes Council for the conversion of the
off licence at 1 Station Road on the corner of Russell Street to a take-away for
Domino's Pizza.
The application number is 16/03437/FUL



The Town Council objected on the following points:
*This change of use erodes the number of retail premises in the      High Street/Station Road with potential to undermine the shopping area viability.
*No parking for this property on a very busy junction, likely to cause severe traffic congestion and yellow lines likely to be ignored resulting in visibility in and out on Russell Street dangerously
*Extraction fan adjacent to residential property will cause noise and smells polluting
 the area.
*Changes to shop frontage need to be in keeping with the Conservation Area. 




The Town Council has signed up to Milton Keynes project to increase food/garden waste recycling:  everything you can put in your green bin: that’s egg shells, dairy products, bread and pastries, cooked and raw meat and fish and the bones, fruit and veg and peelings, leaves, weeds and grass clippings and small branches up to 15cm in diameter.   All the green bin waste from Woburn Sands will be weighed from Dec 2016 to February 2017 and those parishes that demonstrate the biggest improvements in amounts collected will receive rewards of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000. So, please try to put as much in your green bins over the next couple of months as you can.  You can wrap food waste in newspaper first if you want to keep your bin a bit cleaner.




We are looking for a group to be formed to improve the station's appearance.  There is money available from the Community Rail Partnership to get started.
If you are interested please telephone or email the Clerk.
