The Arlesey Consortium are working on the preparation of an outline planning application, which is likely to be submitted early in 2013. As part of the preparatory work, the Consortium is to undertake a considerable level of engagement with the community, including public exhibitions and stakeholder workshops.
This, along with a number of technical studies being undertaken to identify constraints and opportunities, will help to inform the development of a comprehensive masterplan for the site. The first public exhibition took place on 22 and 23 June with more details available on the latest news page.
This website has been set up as a means of providing local people and interested parties access to up to date information on the emerging proposals.
The content on the website will be updated regularly, so keep an eye on the latest news section.
