Full Planning Permission has been granted for 9 dwellings on a redundant horticultural site in Bedfordshire for Status Homes Ltd.

This village fringe site is currently a largely disused horticultural nursery , semi-derelict and an eyesore at the southern approach to the village.

The development comprises nine dwellings with a mixture of two storey, one and half storey and single storey dwellings arranged around a new access road.

Following pre-application consultation with the planning authority and a withdrawal of an earlier scheme for eight dwellings, the local planning authority have granted a delegated planning approval subject to conditions.

The planning officer considered that although the site was outside the village settlement envelope and adjacent to a Conservation Area, when considered against the three objectives of sustainability, which are the social, environmental and economic objectives, the development would be sustainable and would outweigh the non compliance with policy.

The planning application was also supported by the following documents prepared with help from other consultancies:

  • Topographical Survey
  • Ecological Appraisal
  • Landscape and Visual Assessment
  • Landscape Masterplan
  • Tree Survey and Impact Report
  • Flood Risk Assessment and Sustainable Drainage Strategy
  • Design & Access Statement
  • Highways Statement
  • Heritage Statement
  • Plans and Elevations together with a Street Scene Elevation
  • Phase 1 & 2 Geo-Environmental Assessment
