North Houghton Regis
DLP, along with Matrix Transportation and CMYK Architects, have been instructed to promote land at Houghton Regis which, whilst presently designated as green belt, falls within the general area of the proposed Houghton Regis North urban expansion area. The land controlled by Taylor Wimpey, fronting Bedford Road, will be promoted independently of the remaining North of Houghton Regis development area. The land has its own frontage to Bedford Road and is capable of being delivered as a ‘early win' to kickstart the redevelopment of the whole area.
