so mcarthy and stone retirement flats are going ahead..... this is our ' public amenity' as part of this monstrous development...?

this was in lieu of a  care home which was part of the original  proposal...so ...no care home for the elderly with care provision as per the original plan for 'potentially anyone'....

instead we get high cost private flats for the over 55's with no care provision, - residents have to sort out there own care provision...and these flats have to be sold and resold via mcarthy and stone.....

so unless you can afford the half million price tag for a mcarthy flat you can go elsewhere....how are these private flats a community asset ?

yet again the community looses out....

We went to have a look at the development yesterday (just being noisy). The new houses are so close to road and all look so cramped together.. Looks a mess! It's a real shame that builders have rushed it and couldn't have done a better job.. Unlike the Inland Builders who are at least consulting local residents about the Wilton Park development in Beaconsfield. Don't understand how these builders have got away with so much..

It would discourage me too. I hate all that so-called "traffic calming" rubbish. I avoid places that use it as much a I can.

Wasn't planning permission sought and refused for bigger marketing boards?
Maybe we should add our own marketing messages: Houses made of cardboard. Live here if you don't want your drains to work. No school places left in this village...

And so it has happened...

Is planning permission required? Not clear on the Planning Portal.

Sorry, disagree, all that banning parking would do is turn it into a racetrack and probably used more as a cut through. The traffic needs slowing down. 

The challenge is that all of these houses are being built in an environment which is not sustainable. Market Place & High Street as a 20mph zone with a few pinch points would be more like it, discourage those that use it as a cut through, the locals shouldn't mind, it is protecting their environment after all.

The new precinct plans will help enormously

I'm not quite sure what your idea of a ghost town is but it is a long way from mine, the village is swamped by people and cars, you can't drive down any road without weaving in and out of badly parked cars. It had quite enough life in it 50 years ago, now it's a bloody nightmare and will be even worse once that lot from the new development start piling in and out. The whole situation is madness and it seems nothing can be done just like HS2, the people have no power and get walked all over by government from top to bottom. It's a great shame as it used to be a lovely village.

I did say 'as possible', which for them is curtailed by budgets and profit margins. Anyhow one mans tipple is another mans poison, so a young couple buying their first home may be head over heals in love with them.

I used to hate the idea of these news homes but I now welcome them as in the 8 years I've lived here I've seen CSP become practically a ghost town. It needs new life and these homes will help deliver that. That's what I'm hoping at least.
