Edlesborough villagers up in arms over plans to build 75 new homes


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.”
