Debate over three large scale planning applications for east Leighton will take part in the town at 10am on Monday, LBO can confirm.

Central Beds Council has moved its development management committee meeting from its base in Chicksands to Astral Park due to the interest it holds for residents.

Up for discussion are two plans for large scale housing developments– one for 950 homes on Chamberlains Barn Quarry, Heath Road, and another for 270 homes on land known as the The Stearn, Clipstone Lane.

An application for a link road from Heath Road to Vandyke Road, which would act as the main artery for the proposed quarry development, will also be on the table.

All three applications have been recommended for approval by Central Beds Council’s planning department and were submitted by Vimy Court based developer Arnold White Estates Ltd.
