76 new homes: UPDATE

16 October 2014

On Tuesday 14 October, a steel gate and fence was erected by the landowner at the entrance to the footpath in Widmere Field.  76newhomes are awaiting confirmation from the Council as to whether planning permission is required.

On the same day, a notice also appeared with regard to seeking an order to delete the footpath from Buckinghamshire County Council maps.  The notice is dated 14/8/2014 and was issued by William Steele of Widmere Field, Prestwood.  The notice has since been removed.
