Villagers from Edlesborough have sounded out their anger after plans were unveiled to build 75 homes between Kingsmead and Chiltern Avenue.

Two weeks ago, we reported how a public exhibition on the plans by McCann Homes was well-attended.

But a parish survey apparently organised by the parish council showed just 6 people in favour of the new homes, with 120 opposed to it.

A Facebook group – Stop Edlesborough New Town 2 – has also been formed by local campaigners.

Jennifer Driessen-Voice said: “Our villages are under attack from developers like McCann Homes. There was no one that I spoke with at the meeting that was in support of this development.”
