Land south of Fields Road, Wootton
Together with our Consortium partners, Bovis Homes and Bellway Homes, we have obtained a planning consent for a new residential development on land to the south of Fields Road, Wootton.
The planning permission (15/02060/MAF) will deliver 600 new homes, including vehicular access, pedestrian and cycle links, public open space, car parking, landscaping, drainage and associated works on the site, which is outlined in red on the plan pictured right.
The proposed development site was previously allocated for development in the Local Plan of 2002 by Bedford Borough Council. The allocation covered land north of Fields Road and land south of Fields Road, and provided for residential development with employment on adjoining land.
Subsequently in 2002, a joint planning application covering both areas of land was submitted with a resolution to grant being given by the council in 2005. This did not proceed and in 2011, an application relating only to the land north of Fields Road was submitted for 610 units. This is currently being developed by Persimmon Homes with development commencing in 2012.
The Consortium’s planning application was prepared following a public consultation held in September 2014. If you would like to view the material that was displayed at our public consultation event you can do so by clicking here.
