Land off Gold Lane
Size: 7.9 hectares
Type: Residential Scheme – 160 dwellings
Brief: Outline planning application – obtained Committee Resolution to grant permission subject to S106 agreement (May 2019)
The residential scheme of 160 dwellings forms an extension to the west of Biddenham, Bedford. Proposals for the development on the site were subject to intensive public consultation and engagement with the Local Authority over a long period of time, with the main challenges focusing on the retention of an urban open space gap between Biddenham and adjacent settlements; achieving appropriate levels of residential density which would be in character with its surroundings; and meeting Bedford’s community safety guidelines.
