First there was HRN1, Now there is HRN2 - Another 1,850 New Homes

You've heard of HRN1 - 5,150 new homes for the north and east of Houghton Regis, for which outline planning permission has been agreed?
Now there is HRN2  to get used to. This is basically an overall plan for land bordered by the A5, The Chalk Pit, Plaiters Way, Bedford Rd and both sides of Thorn Road up to the edge of the A5-M1 link road.
Developers for this scheme have now entered into a Planning Performance Agreement with Central Bedfordshire Council with the intention of submitting an outline planning application in early April.
The Bidwell West Consortium's scheme is expected to provide about 1,850 new dwellings, 2.6 ha employment development with a 1.9 ha local centre, a new lower school, and associated infrastructure.
In advance of the planning application, various consultation exercises  are now planned. A public consultation event is to be held at:
All Saints Academy
Houghton Road
On the dates of:
Friday 28th March: 16:30 - 20:00
Saturday 29th March: 10:00 - 14:00
CBC Officers and representatives for the developers will also be available during the public event.
If you are unable to attend you can view the proposals at or contact Mike Jones of DLP Consultants on 01234 832740 or by email at
