47 Hospital Road, Arlesey, Bedfordshire. SG15 6RH news On 16th of May at the Annual Meeting of the Town Council Chris Ferris and Chris Gravett were duly elected as Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the council for the coming year. May has been a busy month for planning with several members involved with researching and preparing representations for consideration by the planning authority. Planning applications relating to Central Bedfordshire Council owned land to the East of Arlesey have been considered at CBC’s Development Management Committee meeting. ATC spoke in opposition to the application for two roundabouts on the new Eastern relief road. Objection was based on a traffic analysis and not taking account of the adopted Master plan for Arlesey MA08. Ward Cllr. Dalgarno also spoke on the principle of avoiding piecemeal planning applications and deviation from the adopted master plan. Our biggest concern remains the arbitrary removal of 10 ha of employment land. We will continue to fight for it to be reinstated and to avoid Arlesey becoming a dormitory commuter town. The Council is registering its opposition to the resubmission of an application for a change of use of Hampden House on Hitchin Road from Industrial/Business to Residential under permitted development. The basis for opposition is that the noise impacts on the potential residents cannot be properly mitigated, and the transport impacts have not been properly considered. • Open from 7.00am to 6.15pm.

Plans have been drawn up to make the MUGA a much-improved community facility for all users and the project progressing well. It is anticipated that a significant proportion of the necessary funding will be available via grants from various sporting and charitable bodies. The employment tribunal brought against the Council by the former Town Clerk, Mrs Elsie Hare, has been concluded with a positive outcome for ATC. Mrs Hare’s claim of constructive unfair dismissal has not been successful and has been dismissed. Furthermore, ATC have been awarded costs of £350. ATC would like to thank Councillor Chris Livermore for his considerable time and efforts in working with ATC’s legal representatives in the defence of this case, along with all those who gave evidence in support of ATC.
