The official newsletter of Cold Ashby Parish Council, Countrylife, was available here but, regrettably, appears to have ceased publication since the retirement of the previous chairman. At present (May 2018) you can still access some back issues at the above link.
The Village Link also has a Cold Ashby News Page.

02 January 2022Manor Farm Development Somehow Approved?
The construction of five houses on the site of the former bowling green was approved on 30th November 2021.
This is despite the clearly restricted and potentially dangerous access to the development from Stanford Road close to its junction with Main Street/West Haddon Road.
The Construction and Environment Management Plan which should be submitted prior to construction needs to address the protection of ‘nearby residential amenity, highway safety and visual amenity during construction works’.
The Rambler cannot see how highway safety can be protected unless Stanford Road is destined to be closed for the duration of the development, in which case residents of neighbouring properties will be inconvenienced (to say the least!) and agricultural and commercial vehicles will be diverted.
The unthinkable and unacceptable alternative would be the use of Bridle Lane for access: a proposition which residents of Main Street and Bridle Lane are very unlikely to accept.
The Rambler sees trouble ahead!
