Hunter Page Development Proposal at Bidwell, Houghton Regis

A public exhibition of proposed plans for 70 new homes was held at the Dunstablians Rugby Club on Tuesday 20th May. 

This was in connection with a proposed development of land to the west of Bedford Road. The development would consist of 70 dwellings, with affordable housing, public open space and associated works. The land is sandwiched between the concrete track than runs from Bedford Road around to Blue Waters Woodland, and Plaiters Way. 

The meeting was advertised in the Dunstable Gazette on May 14th, and the developers Hunter Page Planning say they hand delivered notices to many houses in nearby streets. Notices also appeared on lamposts in the area. 

At the exhibition Hunter Page Planning said that the most concern being expressed was egress onto Bedford Road. Long waits at peak times are already experienced by drivers trying to emerge from nearby Roslyn Way. But once the A5-M1 Link has been built, traffic projections show that there will be much less traffic using Bedford Road and using Houghton Regis town centre as a through route.

It is expected that outline planning permission will be applied for in July, with the possibility of the first home being built a year later.

CBC Councillors for the local ward in Houghton Regis, Cllr Susan Goodchild and Cllr David Jones are very concerned about the extra in-fill proposals that are popping up which appear to be over and above the main two schemes of HRN1 (5150 homes) and HRN2 (1890 homes).
