Millbrook Proving Ground
4 individual sites within the Proving Ground, total 15 hectare
up to 25,900 m2 commercial space (B1a, b and c Use Classes)
Outline planning application – permission granted April 2015; and BE1 Architects were appointed to produce a subsequent Design Code
The high profile setting for the proposed development within Millbrook Proving Ground, its proximity to the Greensand Ridge National Trail, and its exposure to long distance views from the sites’ surrounding, prompted a highly sensitive design approach to landscape and ecology, resulting in well screened design proposals.
A comprehensive Design Code has been submitted subsequent to obtaining the planning permission, as part of the discharge of conditions. The Design Code, accompanied by a set of regulating plans, was endorsed and supported by Central Bedfordshire Council.
