The approval of plans for up to 1,220 homes in east Leighton has provoked an angry reaction from residents fearful for the town’s future.

Last Monday’s meeting of Central Beds Council’s planning committee at Astral Park attracted more than 50 attendees, many of whom voiced their displeasure after two applications for large scale housing developments were approved.

Leighton-based developer Arnold White Estates Ltd will now commence work to build 950 homes on Chamberlains Barn Quarry and another 270 on The Stearn, as well as a link road from Heath Road to Vandyke Road.
