Hanslope Neighbourhood Development Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan Working Group are pleased to announce that the NP has been recommended by the independent Inspector, to proceed to referendum.  The full plan is available here and the referendum is scheduled for the 26th September 2019.  With a NP in place, the Local Planning Authority (MK Council) must use the provisions within the Plan when deciding on planning applications.  This will help to address the recent surfeit of developments in the village but……

YOUR VOTE IS NEEDED!

A significant proportion of the village must vote in favour of the Plan, at the referendum, for it to be become ‘made’.  The question you will be asked is:

“Do you want Milton Keynes Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Hanslope to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?”

Any resident of the parish, who is entitled to vote in an election, will be entitled to vote and will receive a polling card (provided they are registered).

Bloor Homes cinema screening for ‘Imogen’s next steps’

Hanslope Fields to host Greatest Showman screening to support Imogen Roberts in her fight to walk again

After losing the use of her legs almost a year ago when a tragic illness struck during a family holiday in Belgium, Bloor Homes is hosting a fundraiser for three-year-old Imogen Roberts from Raunds, Northamptonshire.

Imogen is the daughter of Holly and Andy Roberts, who works for Bloor Homes contractor, SD Carpentry. She was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis, a condition that causes the body to attack itself resulting in spinal cord injury, which has left her unable to walk.

After months of treatment and rehabilitation, the next step in her recovery is an intensive course of treatment at Neurokinex, a specialised neurological rehabilitation centre, with the four week program estimated to cost £10,000.

To support the family in their efforts to raise the necessary funds, Bloor Homes is hosting an outdoor cinema screening on Saturday 27 July at its Hanslope Fields development on Castlethorpe Road.

Taking place on the open space at the front of the development, the event will start at 7:30pm with the screening of The Greatest Showman scheduled to commence at 9:00pm. Tickets will be available for voluntary donations on the night.

Speaking about the fundraising event, Gemma Deacon, Acting Head of Sales for Bloor Homes South Midlands explains: “Across the business we were all touched by Imogen’s story and felt that we had to help support her and her family in her fight to regain the use of her legs.

“We look forward to welcoming people from across the surrounding community to our Hanslope Fields development to enjoy a fantastic evening of family entertainment.”

One hundred deckchairs are being provided for the screening by Bloor Homes, however people are welcome to bring their own, along with any food and drink they would like to enjoy.

Andy Roberts, who will be attending the screening with his wife Holly, added: “Walking is something we all take for granted and you never think of the devastating effects it would have if it was taken away from you.

“We are very grateful to Bloor Homes for all of their efforts to support our fundraising campaign for Imogen and would like to say a big thank you in advance to everyone who comes along on the night.”

Safety first on building sites in Hanslope this summer

As the school summer holidays fast approach, Bloor Homes South Midlands is launching a campaign to raise awareness amongst children in Hanslope of the dangers of entering and playing on building sites.

With construction ongoing at its nearby Hanslope Fields development on Castlethorpe Road, the family owned builder wants to educate both teachers, parents and children, helping to prevent any unnecessary accidents during the six week break. 

Construction Director, Carl Slater explains: “Whilst the number of children killed or injured on UK construction sites continues to fall, there is no room for complacency. That’s why we believe in the importance of reminding young children about the dangers of entering building sites, especially before a long holiday when they have more time to play.

“In addition to arranging site safety visits for school children to a number of developments across the region we have developed five simple reminders for parents and teachers to tell children, helping keep them safe over the summer.”

Safety first this summer

  1. Never enter a building site – building sites can be dangerous places and should never be entered by members of the public, especially children
  2. Large moving vehicles – large vehicles drive in and out of building sites regularly to deliver materials. Children should never play close to the entrance of a building site or on the building site itself as they may not be seen easily by a driver
  3. Dangerous materials – there can be the risk of falling materials and/or hazardous and flammable materials stored on site. It is important that anyone entering a building site has permission to be there, has received the proper training and is wearing the correct safety clothing
  4. Machinery in operation – while they may look like big toys, the heavy and dangerous machinery which is in operation on a building site could cause serious injury to a child. Children should never play on or near to any machinery on a building site
  5. Openings and excavations – during construction there can be areas where the ground has been dug out or ledges from which building work is taking place. Whilst these will be barriered off to prevent falls, it is important that children do not enter a site and put themselves at risk

Carl continues: “We hope that these simple facts will help parents and teachers across Hanslope to spread the word to children in the area about the importance of safety on building sites.

“Whilst we always ensure that all of our construction areas are fenced off with the correct warning signs in place we still want to make sure that children understand the dangers and can enjoy their summer holidays without risk of injury.”

Hanslope Fields currently offers a range of three, four and five bedroom homes, with prices for a three bedroom Kipling design starting from £340,000.

Hanslope children make Bloor Homes bloom

Children from Hanslope primary school got their fingers green this week at a planting event at Bloor Homes’ Hanslope Fields development.

The event was organised to mark National Children’s Gardening Week and saw the children put paint to paper to come up with some colourful creations to inspire the design of garden troughs at the Hanslope Fields development. They were then invited to get their hands dirty and help with the planting.

Miss Hudson, Year 5 teacher at Hanslope Primary school commented: “Our pupils really loved getting involved in the project. We talked about the new homes being built and the importance of gardens to add colour and interest. We then looked at pictures of garden planting and the children got to work with their own colourful designs.

“It was really exciting for our children to visit the development today and get involved in bringing their ideas to life – they had a fantastic time and the end result looked great.”

Gemma Deacon, Acting Head of Sales for Bloor Homes South Midlands added: “We were delighted to welcome students and teachers from Hanslope primary school to get involved in the planting at Hanslope Fields. We have recently launched our Brighter Communities campaign and working with local schools is a key part of our commitment.

“The troughs are the perfect addition to the development and will add some much-needed colour throughout the summer months.”

Hanslope Fields currently offers a range of three, four and five bedroom homes, with prices for a three bedroom Lyttleton design starting from £350,000. 

For more information on the homes and incentives available, please visit the marketing suite on Castlethorpe Road, Hanslope, MK19 7HQ. Alternatively call the sales team on 01908 886 960 or visit https://bloorhomes.com/developments/south-midlands/hanslope-fields.
