Bidwell Plan for 4 Chalet Bungalows

Approximate application site off Bedford Rd. (Map - Google)

A 'behind the houses' plot of land has again been proposed for building work. Access to the site would be via a new road opposite the Red Lion in Bedford Road, Houghton Regis.

Outline planning permission is being sought for the erection of 4 Chalet Style bungalows. The bungalows are mostly semi-detached with one unit to the far end of the site being detached. All units have private amenity space and parking, as shown on the layout plans. New landscaping is proposed within the site as demonstrated on the submitted landscaping plans. The proposal will provide a safe and attractive environment for future occupiers.

The site, as with the rest of the Houghton Regis North Area, is within Green Belt, but this is due to be rolled back to the line of the A5 dual carriageway.

The Design and Access statement concludes, “The proposal for Chalet style bungalows sits harmoniously within the surroundings and consideration has been made to the existing bungalows and new development adjacent to the site.”

Earlier plans for the site have been withdrawn - CB/20/00582/OUT, Outline Application: Erection of 4 chalet style bungalows, Land North of Highfield Bungalow, Bedford Road, Houghton Regis, LU5 6JP
