Regular updates are continuing to be placed on the Disscusions Forum by Paul
14th April 2014
Please be aware that to the best of our knowledge, Site 114 (land near the Rugby club) has been withdrawn from sale and is no longer on the current CBC G&T plan. The Parish Council have written to obtain confirmation from the County Council on this matter.
The Parish Council and the local Focus Group continue to monitor this situation and are committed to supporting the other Parishes surrounding our village with regard to authorised and unauthorised pitches. This is due to the increasing numbers which we don't believe are sustainable in these small communities. Whilst understanding the need and legal commitments for continued growth for G & T communities, it is felt to be unfair that they should all be given land in such a localised area alone.
Currently we have approx. 150 pitches within 4 mile radius of Stanbridge Church. This represents approx 60% of the 247 pitches authorised to date by CBC - 67 authorised pitches alone in Billington.
Further updates will be posted on the webpage as we become aware of them. CBC are currently outlining the new G&T plan which will cover the increase in numbers up to 2031. A further 131 pitches are required in Bedfordshire for that period (this represents a 2% growth) plus 25 pitches for Travelling Showpeople. The plan is due for completion by 31st Jan 2014 with a consultation period in Feb/March 2014.
Stanbridge is now in the current plans for Central Bedfordshire Councils broadband upgrade. We are part of Phase 7, so it is anticipated that we will recieve our upgrade between January and June of 2016. The upgrade should bring us speed of upto 24Mbps against the average in Stanbridge being around 1Mbps.
