Land South of The Bungalow- Outline Permission Sought for 35 — 50 Homes

A plot of land at Bidwell comes up for a planning decision at the end of the month. Houghton Regis Town Council have objected to it. This field is on the northern side of the concrete track that goes up to Blue Waters woodland, and beyond to the former A5 at Chalk Hill.

CB/17/02512/OUT application link.

The field is described as "Land South of the bungalow, Bedford Road, Houghton Regis, Dunstable, LU5 6JS". It is an undeveloped 1.5ha field, adjoining the larger HRN2 site which already has outline planning permission for up to 1850 homes.

Like all the fields in the area, the application site lies within the Green Belt as we know it now. Until Central Bedfordshire's Local Plan is accepted, at the earliest in the late summer, then the land remains inside the Green Belt. However, the planning authority's officers at CBC regard the provision of housing here as acceptable as very special circumstances can be demonstrated.

The original application is for 50 homes. The revised application addendum is for up to 43 homes. The officer's report suggests that no more than 36 homes should be built.
