Project Information

Comprising a large Local Plan allocation, this development for three housing developers responds to the new emphasis placed on increasing the standards of residential design. Located on the northern edge of Bedford, key views to jointly proposed country park and care home had to be protected, which helped to define the overall development form. The guiding principle of the design was to create a strong sense of place. This was achieved by the creation of individual character areas related through the main transitional linking element features of the tree lined avenue and boulevarded access corridor/ bus route.
