North of Bromham Road

Land North of Bromham Road, Biddenham North of Bromham Rd Illustrative Map

Located on the North West edge of Bedford this development site of approximately 134 hectares extends northwards from Bromham Road, Biddenham to the River Great Ouse and from the northern end of Branston Way to the west and the A6 Clapham Road to the east.

 

Planning application 01/02199/OUT submitted in 2001 sought planning permission for up to 1200 dwellings; employment; retail; country-park; open space; landscaping; leisure and community facilities; a park and ride facility; road linking the A6 and A428; supporting infrastructure including roads; paths; cycleways; public transport and car parking facilities on this site. A decision on this application was not made until after the adoption of the Land North of Bromham Road, Biddenham: Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document in 2003. At the September 2003 committee an officer recommendation to approve the planning application subject to a number of conditions and the signing of a Section 106 Legal Agreement was agreed by the Committee Members. Although negotiations on the Section 106 agreement continued after the committee date it was no possible to secure the agreement of all the landowners of the site and therefore the decision notice was not released.

 

To move the site forward there are now three new applications under consideration by this Council. These include the update to the Environmental Statement supporting the outline application for the development of the whole site under application 01/02199/OUT, a new outline application for the development of the western section of the site reference 11/01934/EIA, and a third outline application for the development of the south eastern corner for 205 dwellings under application reference 11/02675/EIA. All three applications relate to the same development site or part of the site while a further application for the development of the golf course site is anticipated.
