Bedford Borough Council
This 43.8 acre greenfield site lies to the north of Bedford and to the east of the built development known as Woodlands Park.
It was proposed for allocation in then-emerging Bedford Borough Local Plan to provide housing and an extension to the North Brickhill Country Park.
A Promotion Agreement with the landowner was completed in November 2018 and a planning application for up to 200 homes and an extension to the Country Park was submitted within four months. Following negotiations with the Council, it was reduced to 165 dwellings through a reduction on the density of the development. The application was subsequently approved at the local level with an accompanying planning agreement providing 30% affordable housing, contributions towards various sustainable transport initiatives, provision and maintenance of the Country Park and provision of on-site play facilities.
