Springfield Farm Quarry

It was recently announced that a hoped-for increase in vehicle movements to our local tip was turned down by county planners. Objections to the increase were made by at least one local resident on the grounds that many of the lorries leave the site and turn right towards Beaconsfield Old Town, which is against the planning consent in force. This picture was taken at lunchtime today (1/4) and our photographer only had to wait a few minutes and this was the only truck he saw leave.
P1020861a If you should see a vehicle not turning west towards Wooburn Moor please take a picture or a note of its index number and the time and date.

Pizza to go

A planning application has been submitted to turn 3 Holtspur Parade in Heath Road P1020860a into another hot food takeaway. Using the Planning and Building Control Online links on the SBDC web site you can lodge an objection or your support. Perhaps the vegetarians amongst us P1020878 suffer enough with the smell from the King’s Head Harvester. Could another hot food outlet make matters worse? What about more parking at the Heath Road and Holtspur Top Lane junction? I suppose, like the recently opened motorway services, it could prove a useful local amenity.

When can we move in?

Not for some time it seems. All work has been suspended at the St James Gate development P1020867a on North Drive. The developers have gone to complete other projects - it is not known when they will be back. Tim Russ and Co will still register interested buyers 01494 681122.

There are times when parking on the pavement is essential to safe working but unless you are changing a forty feet high lamp like these brave chaps, is it legal? Unbeknown to many drivers the new Highway Code has a specific rule about this: “244 You MUST NOT park partially or wholly on the pavement in London, and should not do so elsewhere unless signs permit it. Parking on the pavement can obstruct and seriously inconvenience pedestrians, P1020884 people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments and people with prams or pushchairs.” So, please, leave it at the kerb and walk from there.
