  • Reflections on Houghton Regis Community Day - 30/8. 
"Visitors got the chance to engage with CBC departments from Business, Leisure, Adult Education, Planning, Houghton Regis Central, Parkside and Tithe Farm Regeneration (?), Houghton Hall Park. Also available were HRDC to explain the next steps in the development of sites for building, community, and commercial in HRN1 - expect more masterplans and consultations before actual planning applications - and the Town Council with a brief intro to the Houghton Regis Neighbourhood Plan. Houghton Regis Helpers were on hand to supply refreshments.
"There was free face-painting and hat decorating to add a fun element to the days proceedings.
 As expected, there was nothing specific about 'The Kingsland' site, although various opportunities were there for people to probe into aspirations for that site. I personally feel that the PR team behind Legacy did a poor job last year with their communications which have lead to 'runctions', shall we say, within our community.
A follow-up Day is hoped to be scheduled to take in the evening, probably in November, and likely to be at the new building in Houghton Hall Park.
Personally, I found the day very useful for networking, because I was able to put faces to names of people I regularly have email contact with. I was able to explain to them the role I felt Houghton Regis News Desk played in communicating what's going on to those staff who were unaware. Thankfully most staff I spoke with were already aware of HRND. I was also able to share with them our associated HRND group "Houghton Regis Planning Applications" and explain how I hoped this would help to educate people about the planning process, and how to look for things that might be objectionable. It was also great to be able to have one-on-one frank discussions with key CBC councillors and those in CBC management positions, as well as catch up with our town councillors, many of who were there.
If there was anything missing, I would point to the local bus service operators, or a lack of CBC passenger transport spokesperson, as recent changes have caused problems in the town. When the next one comes around, I do hope more 'general public' attend and have a few questions on their mind that can be put to the council officers, who can only respond if people would just ask, or put their issues to them."

Sorry I couldn't take it any further but it was hard work with my dog on her lead and pushing the bike. Hopefully it can be returned by its owner!" Posted on 30/08/2017. Served to 2884 unique users.

  • Council plans Community Day for Houghton Regis 7 August 2017 Central Bedfordshire Council is holding a family-orientated Community Day, called Your Town – Your Future, in Houghton Regis on 30 August. The event gives residents an opportunity to contribute their own ideas, and hear more about the planned improvements coming to the town. This is the start of a series of events and activities where the council will be liaising with the Houghton Regis Community to shape your future town. From Houghton Regis Central – a forthcoming independent living scheme for older people – to other proposals including education, leisure and housing, Central Bedfordshire Council is working on a number of major projects to benefit the community. First event on Wednesday 30 August This first event will take place on Wednesday 30 August (from 11am-6pm) at Houghton Regis Baptist Church Hall on Hammersmith Gardens (off Parkside Drive). We’re currently planning follow up events and will build on people’s ideas from this one. The next events are likely to take place in October and March. Residents are invited to bring their whole family and drop in any time between 11am and 6pm to meet the people who are directly involved in the plans, to ask questions and to share their thoughts and ideas for Houghton Regis. There will be activities to support and to encourage people, especially our youngest residents, to contribute their ideas for the future of Houghton Regis. Cllr Nigel Young, Executive Member for Regeneration, said: “There are a wide range of exciting developments on the horizon for Houghton Regis. We want to raise awareness of these amongst the local community so that they can better understand the projects coming to their town. “At the event, we will welcome residents who wish to discuss specific development or regeneration initiatives. We also recognise that residents will want to talk about their own ideas and provide their thoughts on their neighbourhood, and so we are running some creative workshops to encourage participation by all age groups. Everyone is welcome to join us to take part in our ongoing discussions, as we aim to make Houghton Regis a great place to live and work.” Posted on 23/08/2017. Served to 1238 unique users.

  • From our postbag - Dangerous Dog Alert. - Please note that Dangerous Dogs should be reported to the Police. Here is the information received today from a concerned dog owner: "I feel that other dog walkers around the Houghton Regis area should be aware of an incident that happened this morning while out walking my dog with friends. My dog was attacked, it was completely unprovoked. We were stood in a group of 3, 2 of us with prams and all 3 of us with dogs, all very friendly dogs. We have been walking over at Houghton Hall Park for a good few months now and tend to meet in the morning and walk around together. There is a well-known dog who can be very vicious and has attacked or tried to attack many dogs in the park. And today the owner started to walk over towards us and he was with another person who we also sometimes talk to. So we put out dogs on their leads so they wouldn't run up to said dog because we have had past experiences and heard stories about this dog. The owner also put the dog on the lead but after a few minutes we were just putting the children back in the buggies to go for a lap around the field and the owner of the vicious dog let go of the lead, I think and would like to hope by accident and the dog just ran at my dog and jumped on him and started to bite him. The owner came over and gained control over the dog again and luckily one of the people we were with grabbed my little boy who was being a toddler and having a walk at the time! The man never apologised or said anything to me at all, hardly scolded the dog for attaching mine. Luckily no blood was shed but he has been to vets today as he was limping quite bad and he has ligament damage. My dog is not the only dog this has happened to yet the owner refuses to do anything, still doesn't muzzle the dog and will repeatedly let the dog off his lead completely out of his control! This didn't end badly today but it really will not be long until a dog, adult or child does get seriously hurt! And I think it is disgusting that he refuses to acknowledge his dog does this and refuses to even say sorry! 😑 I just feel everyone needs to be aware of this situation when walking over there with dogs off leads and with children also!"

In a statement issued last week, the council said, "We want to reassure everyone that we recognise how important the Red House is to the Houghton Regis community and we are working as fast as we can to address the issues with its repair, together with the local Heritage Society and Historic England. Because of the listed status of the house, we must make sure that any work that is done is all works in accordance with strict requirements.

  • TO VAN OWNERS From Bedfordshire Police "We are still seeing a significant number of tradespeople's vehicles targetted for tools, particularly Ford Transit and Transit Connect vans. In the last 6 months alone, just over 280 Transits have been broken into costing their owners time, money and loss of work. Unfortunately, there are a number of videos on the web that show how to break into a vehicle and a lot of the devices and tools used can also be readily bought online. Whilst investigations into this crime are ongoing, tradespeople can assist Bedfordshire Police by removing valuable items from their vehicles. If this is not possible, then please consider fitting a lockable strong box or cage in your vehicle. Remember, property marking will make your tools less desirable on the second-hand market, as well as assisting the police with evidence of ownership and enabling the return of recovered property. We would like to make all van owners aware of this company: www.protectavan.co.uk On this site you can find many approved locks and devices to ensure your vehicle is as secure as it can be. If you have seen any suspicious activity recently, please report it to Bedfordshire Police on 101. If you witness a crime in progress, please dial 999 immediately." Posted on 07/08/2017.

The machine can fix potholes within two minutes, rather than the hour that conventional filling methods can take, by ‘blowing’ material into the hole. So, as well as being able to fix more potholes in the same time, it minimises disruption to the public. You can see just how quickly the Jetpatcher works by watching this video.

  • WINDSOR DRIVE RECREATION GROUND The land at Windsor Drive was recently included in a 'call for sites' as potential land for development. A new report for CBC has reduced the likelihood of this site now being contemplated. "NLP344 Land at Windsor Drive Houghton Regis Houghton Regis Not Green Belt 4.73 Site to be excluded from Local Plan process Fail at Stage 2. Based on an overall consideration using planning balance. The following issues have been identified: Although the site is within the settlement of Houghton Regis, it is situated on designated open space which when considering existing open space should not be built on unless: - Assessments have been taken which clearly show the open space, buildings or land to be surplus to requirements. - The loss resulting from the proposed development would be replaced by equivalent or better provision in terms of quantity and quality in a suitable location. Given the sites’ location, it will be unlikely that a suitable location elsewhere could be identified within the settlement itself - The development is for alternative sports and recreational provision, the needs for which clearly outweigh the loss. This is indicated within the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). CBC’s Leisure Strategy does not state that this site is surplus to requirements, furthermore, no land has been identified that can provide equivalent or better provision of open space and the development would not provide alternative sports and recreation provision that would outweigh the loss. Given the recent allocations of Houghton Regis North 1 and 2 and the increase in population this brings, this puts more pressure to retain open spaces within the settlement as well as newly provided open spaces. The site also provides essential green infrastructure in a very dense area. Even if surplus to requirement. For the reasons outlined above, it is not considered that this site is worthy of further assessment for development. " Source; Posted on 09/07/2017. Served to 9204 unique users. Facebook Link


  • I've a had a few enquiries asking after Oakwell Park. The outline planning application included demolition of all buildings presently on site, and I raised a petition objecting to that aspect of the application. I'm not sure what the hold up is; CBC was expecting the earliest decision date of 20 March 2017. The site has, however, been commented upon in the Local Plan for Central Bedfordshire Council area in "Site Assessment Results" published a few days ago, where it states, "Site to be excluded from Local Plan process. Site fails at Stage 1D. The site already has planning permission for Green Space as part of a wider mixed use allocation. If the developer wishes to alter this then the Call for Sites is not the correct process to do this." Source: " Alan Winter HRND editor. Posted on 09/07/2017. Served to 2316 unique users.

  • TRAVEL ASSISTANCE - NOTICE FROM CBC Central Bedfordshire Council is reviewing its Home to School and College Travel Assistance Policies. The proposals aim to make more efficient use of council taxpayers’ money. The revised policy proposals will make greater use of public transport through bus passes and train travel, as well as sustainable ways of getting to schools, such as walking and cycling. The changes would help reduce congestion, pollution and parking issues on busy local roads near schools; encourage healthy forms of exercise, and help to boost existing public transport routes. The proposed changes would come into effect for the September 2018 intake of pupil admissions, hence we are consulting with the public now so that the outcomes are available to relevant parents ahead of the next round of school admissions. Parents will, therefore, be in a position to understand the new transport policy provision before submitting their Secondary / Upper school admissions applications by 31 October 2017, or Lower/Primary / Middle Transfer applications by 15 January 2018. We want to understand the public’s views on the proposed policies, and your feedback can help inform the new policies before we adopt them. The consultation is now open and will run until 20 August. You can have your say online pick up a paper copy from your nearest library. link Posted on 07/07/2017. Served to 1718 unique users. Facebook Link
