MULTI-USE GAMES ARENA
01 January 2022

OFFICIAL OPENING MARCH 2022.

GUPC are delighted to let everyone know that the M U G A (Multi Use Games Area) is ready for use in the grounds behind Grendon Underwood Village Hall.

The fenced area gives an ideal surface to be used for many different sports activities and for everyone of all ages to enjoy. Whether you are a football, netball, hockey or basketball fan, the facility is now open for everyone to use. We just ask that you use it responsibly and respect others using it – and please …

No dogs or camping; take your litter home (bins will be provided) and bear in mind Covid restrictions are in place.

Paid for by a levy on developers of new buildings in the Parish, through the Planning Authority, this means it has not been paid for from Council Tax on local residents.

Installed during some rather wet conditions, there are still some remedial works to be completed to ensure access and pathways are safe and sound. Meanwhile, please try to keep the MUGA surface as clean as possible.

An official opening will take place early in 2022 but it is open for you to use NOW! Enjoy, stay healthy, stay safe – for community.

Oxford to Cambridge Arc Spatial Framework the Buckinghamshire Council Vision
27 August 2021

Vision for the so called ‘Oxford to Cambridge ARC’

I wanted to make you aware of a Government consultation on what they describe as the Oxford to Cambridge ARC. This sets out their intention to prepare a ‘Spatial Framework’, effectively a Regional Plan, for the area between Oxford and Cambridge. This would potentially have very serious implications for Buckinghamshire as Government could use it to set the direction and scale of new development, in particular new housing. This could mean much higher ‘top down’ housing targets that would need to be met locally.

This Framework would be legally binding upon councils when they come to prepare their own Local Plans, effectively overruling local communities and democratically elected councils’ wishes.

Our position is that Buckinghamshire is already delivering large numbers of new houses within current Government targets. We do not wish these targets to be significantly increased by this Regional Plan. We believe that democratically elected local councils are best placed to make local decisions on where and when housing is built, rather than having this imposed ‘top down’ by central Government.

We understand local residents may be asked to join focus groups to collect views. If you wish to understand our position in more detail, please refer to our website.

Martin Tett. Leader, Buckinghamshire Council.
