Draft plans for up to four new villages in Mid Bedfordshire


Draft plans for up to four new villages in Mid Bedfordshire


JUNE 2017

Central Bedfordshire Council approved its draft Local Plan for consultation this week, which calls for around 20-30,000 new homes to be built by 2035. Within the plans are four new villages in Marston Vale of around 5,000 new homes.

In a statement the council said: “The proposal is to develop a series of four villages and a business park. The proposed villages would deliver part of the Bedford to Milton Keynes Waterway Park and an attractive waterway linking Brogborough and Stewartby lakes. This would bring opportunities for leisure, tourism and wildlife. The proposals include green open space within the new villages and tree planting for the Forest of Marston Vale."

The proposed East-West Rail route will also benefit this development. The location is close to the future East-West Rail Interchange at Ridgmont train station.

The draft plan is now going out to consultation with a public exhibition at Marston Sports Pavilion on July 11 from 2-8pm.
