This petition is raised due to continued concerns raised by many residents in Sharnbrook Ward, but recognise there are many other road users from the wider community share the same concerns. It is important to refresh on what we already have learned from previous appraisals.

Bedford Borough Local Plan 2035
You will hopefully be aware that the Local Plan includes the option for new settlements. Four key sites have been highlighted including Twinwoods, Thurleigh airfield and Sharnbrook/Souldrop. The fourth site is around Wyboston.
The Borough are due to make a decision over the sites within the coming months. Needless to say all have the potential for increased traffic volume, however, only Twinwoods includes the provision of a by-pass around this village. Neighbouring Parishes are concerned over the potential impact and although the consultation period has closed, are suggesting that any resident who is concerned or opposed to these proposals should contact the Mayor or members of his executive. Their contact details are included in a 'flyer' produced by Ward Councillor Alison Field-Foster, which we have posted on the Parish Council website, alongside our own, for your information.
Milton Ernest Parish Council continue to only support the potential development of the Twinwoods site for housing over any future commercial use, particularly when such use will be unlikely to include alternative traffic routes.
