Application to Build 31 Affordable Homes at Bidwell

Land to the south of The Bungalow, Bedford Road, Houghton Regis, Dunstable, LU5 6JS
Residential development of 31 affordable dwellings with formation of two vehicular accesses, sustainable urban drainage and associated landscaping.

This application is FULL rather than RM because it is a different scheme to that proposed in outline in 2017. In particular, it is for 100% affordable housing and because of that suggests in Design and Access Statement that S106 agreement would be inappropriate.

Consultation Start Date: 06 / 03 / 2020
Earliest Decision Date (Consultation Period Expires): 15 / 04 / 2020

Locate the planning number 20/00687 at  CBC Planning Portal or go directly to plans here.


14/12/2020: The Secretary of State decided not to call in this application. He is content that it should be determined by the local planning authority. (reference letter).

22 February 2021 - Granted Permission by CBC Planning. (decision letter).
