Message from Arlesey Women’s Institute regarding WI Hall Car Park

The Arlesey Women’s Institute would like to issue the following message:

The WI leave the rear car park available for community use, especially in consideration of the number of cars needing space at the beginning and end of the school day.  The Pre-school use the car park in term time but there are still spaces available.

If the Hall has been booked for an event requiring sole use of the car park an “A” board sign is put out.  This is usually only at a weekend.

But, throughout the week the hall is booked on a number of evenings for classes requiring the hirer to unload equipment, so we would be grateful if the spaces at the front of the hall could be left free, at all times for hirers of the hall only.

Thank you

Bronwen Martin

President, Arlesey Women’s Institute

Notice of REFUSAL of Prior Application for Proposed Change of Use – Hampden House, Hitchin Road, Arlesey.

Following objections to Central Bedfordshire Council by residents and the Town Council, ATC is able to confirm that the application for prior approval for a ‘change of use’ was recently REFUSED.

ATC would like to thank all those who attended and contributed to the Town Council meeting in November, when the application was discussed, and particularly Mr D. Smith, of London Row who provided invaluable supporting information.

Conditions or Reasons for Planning Application – CB/16/05000/PADO – Hampden House, Hitchin Road, Arlesey, SG15 6RS 
Conditions or Reasons:
1) The applicant has failed to demonstrate that contamination risks on the site have been addressed to enable the Local Planning Authority to determine whether future occupiers would experience unacceptable contamination risks at the site. As such prior approval is refused for the proposal as it would be contrary to the advice within the National Planning Policy Framework and Policy DM3 of the Core Strategy and Development Management Policies Document 2009.
2) The applicant has failed to demonstrate that the change of use can achieve an acceptable level of amenity for occupiers in relation to addressing satisfactorily noise impacts and the Council is therefore unable to determine whether future occupiers would experience unacceptable impacts from noise emitting from adjacent commercial premises. As such prior approval is refused for the proposal as it would be contrary to the advice within the National Planning Policy Framework and Policy DM3 of the Core Strategy and Development Management Policies Document 2009.
