Important - this affects Tempsford - Central Beds Council Housing Plan
The deadline for responses is Thursday 22nd February 2018.
Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) has now launched a final consultation on its Local Plan for housing which will show where new housing developments will be located over the next 20 years. It sees big developments just outside Biggleswade with smaller ones in Sutton, Dunton, Everton and Potton. The massive Tempsford and Biggleswade developments mentioned in the draft plan are still there just held in reserve and could very likely return. The consultation runs until 22nd February and you can take part by going to:

I.e. it is a fibre cable to the exchange, but it still relies on the copper phone lines to get the broadband to your house.

The Parish Council has planted an additional 125kg of daffodil bulbs around the village this year. That brings to total to 375kg planted in 2014, 2015 and 2016. They will be reviewed when they flower in the spring with the view to expanding the planting area. For reference the bulb type is "Carlton".
