Respondent: Mr R W Harland

Representation Summary:

Ivy Lane is full to overcapacity. In June 2021 the Bedford Highways department objected to application (21/00734/OUT).
The Highways objection stated: “It is considered that Ivy Lane is at more than its capacity as a shared use space and narrow country lane” & “Therefore it is considered that Ivy Lane is not suitable for an increase in traffic levels.”

It is clear that Ivy Lane cannot take any additional traffic.

This site should be removed from the Site Assessment list.

Respondent: Mr Mark Wooding

Representation Summary:

Oppose further housing development that will increase traffic flow along Cotton End Road.
Road is already too busy, too fast and becoming dangerous in the absence of average speed cameras.

Any further development should be on the periphery of the village.
