Why PBB was formed
In October 2000
Wilbraham Associates of Rugby submitted an objection to
the Deposit Version of Milton Keynes Local Plan. A
feature on the development proposals appeared in The
Business Citizen newspaper and as a result the Parish
Council invited the land agents The Wilkinson Partnership
to present the idea to the village.
The Public Meeting
It was standing room only when over 200 people packed The
Pavilion on 7 March 2001 to hear details of the development proposals.
The meeting was practically
unanimous in its opposition to the proposals - only three people
admitted to being in favour.
At the conclusion of the
meeting there was a show of hands in favour of forming an
organisation, to work with the Parish Council and REASON, to
monitor the threat to the village and if necessary fight the
Resistance to the
proposals was effective and the Local Plan was eventually adopted
without the inclusion of the 'Wilkinson' site.
Since that time Preserve Bow Brickhill has continued to represent the
village and to preserve it from unwelcome and inappropriate development.
