2,000 new homes in Bletchley: First public meeting next week


An open meeting will be held on Monday (February 16) night to discuss plans for 2,000 new homes on the outskirts of Bletchley

The Bletchley Against Salden Chase Expansion group will join parish councillors in discussing the scheme, which is proposed for Salden Chase on a site next to the proposed Bletchley-Oxford rail link.

The plans will include 1,855 new homes, plus a new primary school and a site for a secondary school.

But campaigners have predicted it will only cause traffic and infrastructure problems, and have challenged developers to include funding for a new Bletchley Bypass.

Elaine Wales, from Bletchley Against Salden Chase Expansion, said: “I would urge residents to come along join the challenge to the developers bad planning application.

“West Bletchley deserves better. Securing a bypass is critical.”

The meeting takes place at the West Bletchley Council offices, Whaddon Way, on February 16 from 7pm.
