A CITIZENS’ group keen on shaping the Church Farm development are upset that a new stakeholder group will only allow two members of their alliance on board.

ReviseSR4 was formed in January after initial plans were revealed to build nearly 400 homes on land on the outskirts of Wavendon Gate and Old Farm Park.

But after several meetings with their councillors and council officers, the group was disappointed to hear they would only be allowed two spaces in the new stakeholder group.

They are concerned that the group could act as an excuse for the developers not to meet with the residents directly affected by the new estate.

Chair for ReviseSR4 Ginny Tait said “We are extremely disappointed that the developer and the school planners no longer feel that the people in the wider community deserve the chance to openly discuss the issues affecting them.

“Although we are grateful for the opportunity to join the Stakeholder Group the wider public still deserve to have the chance to raise their concerns directly.”
