RESOLVED to recommend to Central Bedfordshire Council that objection be made to application reference CB/19/00095 (274 Grasmere Way, Linslade) on the grounds that enclosure of green amenity land would be contrary to the original design of the estate and detrimental to the visual amenity of the street scene.
Discussion took place regarding application reference CB/19/00141 (land at corner of Stoke Road and Old Linslade Road).

Concerns included access onto a busy road, the potential for mud on the road and the fact that the area was not well lit.
