I have to say like everywhere around the country, the face of small little towns like Ampthill will change due to massive developments, and with this the type of people arrive who unfortunately takes any community spirit with it which may already be gasping for breath like a fish thrown out onto the banks of a river.Ask any old Amptonion for confirmation.It is my opinion which is up for debate of course, but certain changes to our housing structure ie the huge incomes to be made from private rent and the lack of council housing contribute firstly to a new type of person living in Ampthill, I mean why rent in Bedford when you can rent in Ampthill. If there were council houses available in Bedford I'm sure these would be taken up by people rather than private rent in Ampthill. Also with immigration, a boring tired subject I know, sorry, and the constant need to make money money money I'm afraid slowly but surely one by one that old little village town will be swallowed up and become a memory like all the other English heritage we had to be proud of we only have ourselves to blame for selling ourselves down the river.

Many interesting points there, but I must question the "huge incomes to be made from private rent". The yield on rental properties (i.e. ratio between rental income and cost) is not great these days, especially in Ampthill where house prices are high. Couple this with the extortionate costs of buying a property (including new +3% stamp duty), getting it let and managed (10-20% of income), tax, insurance and vacant periods and there is very little profit left even with today's low mortgage rates. From now on most landlords will have to rely on increasing house prices which looks risky at the moment.
