? Potential capacity problem requiring mitigation

The site is located adjacent to southern boundary of property Box End House on the east side of Box End Road and is approximately 4.5 miles south-west of Bedford town centre. Traffic generation from the potential residential development would generate an increase in pedestrian and traffic movements. Box End Road is a bus route and bus stops facilities exist outside 31 Box End Road and approximately 480m distance from the site. The footway strip outside the site of Box End Road approximately 1m in width and grass verge behind the footway. Cycling is possible by using the road surface. Given the proposal a road to adoptable standards is required in accordance with Bedford Borough Council's highway standards in respect of width of carriageway, provision of footway/maintenance margins and radius kerbs at the junction. There is scope for the extension of the existing bus service. There is potential to upgrade the footway to at least 1.8m in width in Box End Road. Pedestrian crossing points need to be identified at key points to enable safe crossing points for pedestrians.

The site is located north of Northampton Road and Grange Lane in the Bromham area approximately 3.5 miles west of Bedford town centre. Access from Northampton Road. Footways serve the site but are overgrown and need improvements, including a shared cycle and footway opposite the site. Bus stops in close proximity. Some congestion within Bridge End but scale of development would not exacerbate significantly. Clear footway on southern side of Northampton Road or provide crossing to northern footway which is in better condition. Upgrade of the bus facilities outside of the site. Potential marking on-street cycle lanes.

The site is located on the west side of Odell Road approximately 10 miles northwest of Bedford town centre in the Village of Harrold. There is no significant congestion in the vicinity, however this development may have a moderate impact on local networks. There are various access points from Odell Road, which is a 30mph speed limit road. The closest bus stop is located adjacent to one of the access points of the site. There is no footway outside the site but there is a footway of 1.4m width on the opposite side of the road. Cycling is possible by using Odell Road. The proposed development will require a road to adoptable standards in accordance with Bedford Borough Council's highway standards. A Transport Assessment will be required to identify the impact of traffic on Odell Road and Odell Road/High Street junction as well as satisfactory facilities for both pedestrians and cyclists. Consider marking on-street cycle lanes. A footway of 2m in width should be provided outside the site, or crossing provided to the footway on the opposite side of the road, to link with existing footway further south near the opposite junction with High Street.

The site located at the junction of A6/The Avenue in the village of Bletsoe and lies approximately 8 miles north of Bedford town centre. Access on the site is feasible from The Avenue. There is minimal traffic in the vicinity and the proposed development would likely not cause any issues on The Avenue or at the junction of A6/The Avenue. The closest bus stop is outside of the site on the A6 road. The footway on The Avenue is around 2m outside of the site and in the A6 approximately 1.5m. There are no formal cycleways serving the site, however cycling is possible by using the quiet roads in the vicinity. Consider marking on-street cycle lanes on The Avenue. Provide pedestrian crossings at the junction of The Avenue with A6 to facilitate safe access to the bus stops. Improved bus service with regular frequency and Real-Time information.

? Potential access requiring mitigation

x Serious capacity constraint

Based on the submission, it is difficult to tell the exact location, but the previous assessment seems to be accurate in terms of use. According to previous assessment of then site 420: Access will be provided from Rookery Road, an adopted and unclassified single carriageway of 30mph speed limit. The carriageway width varies but is approximately 4.8m at this section. There is no footway immediately outside the site, however a footway is of varying width between 1m – 1.6m which is present on the east side of Rookery Road. There is a segregated cycle route in the vicinity adjacent to the A1 (about 250m as the crow flies, 1.3km on the road). The closest bus stop is 1km from the site with 112 Ivel Sprinter stopping once a day heading to St Neots / Biggleswade. The proposal for 250 - 300 dwellings will intensify the use of the access to the site and have a significant impact on highway network. The immediate junctions affected will be with The Lane to the south as well as Rookery Road itself. The width of Rookery Road is approximately 4.8m at this section and is not wide enough to accommodate additional capacity for 250 – 300 dwellings. A Transport Assessment would be needed to assess the impact of the development on the local highway network. Unlikely Rookery Road would be able to support this scale of development. Improvement of pedestrian and cycle access would be needed - provision of a footpath / pedestrian crossing and designated cycle path. The road is very narrow however which would make the latter difficult.

? Potential capacity problem requiring mitigation

The site is located east of A6 just outside of the village of Bletsoe and lies approximately 8 miles north of Bedford town centre. Access to the site is feasible off the A6, however the speed limit would benefit from being reduced in the vicinity to improve access. There is no significant traffic congestion on the A6 road outside of the site. The nearest bus route is located 200m south from the site at the junction of A6/The Avenue. There is a footway of 1m outside of the site and no formal cycle routes. A Transport Assessment may be required depending on the scale of development proposed at the site. Consider reduction in speed limit along the A6 in front of the site. Improvement of the footway along the frontage of the site would be required. Improved bus service with regular frequency and Real-Time information.

? Potential capacity problem requiring mitigation

The site is located South of The Lane and West of the A1 (not directly adjacent) in the village of Wyboston. Access points are not provided in the application, however, The Lane is the most likely candidate. The width of The Lane at this section is varied and approximately 5.4 - 5.7m and there is no footway outside the site. However a good quality footway is present on the opposite side of site albeit is less than the standard minimum of 2m in width. There is no cycle lane or quietway in the vicinity and although the roads in the area are generally low traffic, The Lane sometimes sees some congestion due to it's connection to the A1. The closest bus stop is approximately 200m from the site with 905 connecting Cambridge and Bedford stopping twice per hour and monthly W9 and W10 services. The application does not state proposed use, however, the previous assessment cites 150 dwellings. If this is the case, the generated traffic would potentially have a significant impact on the local road network, particularly at the A1 junction and approach. Although the number of dwellings is not indicated on the application, a TA would be needed to assess the overall impact on the local highway network, in particular the junction with the A1. Improvement of pedestrian and cycle access would be needed - provision of a crossing to the footpath on the opposite side and a designated cycle path or on street markings.

Vehicular access on Oakley Road is already provided to an acceptable standard for 3-4 dwellings. There is no significant traffic congestion along the A6 and it's intersection with Oakley Road. The closest bus stop is 400m to the west of the site on Lovell Road. It accomodates many services: 25, 50, 51, VL6 and VL8, providing 4+ buses per hour. There is plenty of footway space for pedestrian prams and wheelchairs. The footway is only on one side of the street, but it is wider than 1m. Furthermore, this is a shared space for also cyclists, providing direct segregated cycling access to the site. The site scores well under all evaluating criteria and no significant mitigation is recommended.

Access will be in the NE of the site - demolishing 21 Church End to provide a new access onto Church End. There is often moderate traffic on Main Road, Biddenham, however most traffic from this site is likely to use Gold Lane to access the A6 and A4280 for most journeys. The 41 bus stops within 400m of the site and provides an hourly service between Northampton and Bedford. Church End does not have a pavement, just a narrow painted pedestrian verge. There is however what appears to be a surfaced footpath running along the southern boundary of the site. The path running along the southern boundary appears to be a cycle path as well, so could be used for direct cycle connectivity. 21 Church End would need to be demolished to achieve the desired access. Church End does not have a pavement so pedestrian and cycle connectivity will have to be provided by linking the development to the existing pedestrian/cycle path running along the southern boundary of the site.

? Potential access requiring mitigation

? Potential capacity problem requiring mitigation

Access will be formed by demolishing 146 Milton Road and constructing a new access road. A slight realignment of the bus stop will be needed as this currently covers part of the proposed access. There is only a very small amount of traffic in the area and the site has excellent access to the A6, however this development and other neighbouring ones may contribute to congestion. A bus stop approximatly 25m from the proposed access gives an hourly service to Bedford via the number 50 service. There is a wide and well-paved pavement directly outside the site on Milton Road. 250m from the site north on Milton Road there is a shared cycle/pedestrian path running along the A6 to Milton Ernest. A Transport Assessment is required to assess cumulative impacts of this site and others proposed in the vicinity. Realign current bus stop to ensure adequate and safe vehicular access. Ensure that a pavement is built as part of the access road and connects to the pavement on Milton Road. Suggest that the pavement on Milton Road be redesignated as a shared path to connect to the existing shared path 250m north of the site access.

Access proposed to the site directly off Luton Road, no obvious constraints. Some traffic congestion at peak times along Luton Rd, and the size of this development may contribute to this. Nearest bus stop is approx 180m to the south along Luton Rd, which features an hourly service to Bedford. A reasonable footway is situated directly outside the site. This could be expanded and imprved as part of the development. No cycle routes nearby however given its width, cycling is possible along the road surface. Given the scale of the development, a Transport Assessment will be required to assess the impact on surrounding transport networks and propose any mitigation (if necessary). Improve footway adjacent to the site and consider marking on-road cycle lanes.

x Serious access constraint wider impacts

x Serious capacity constraint

The site is currently a greenfield area, adjacent to A421, covering two separate areas. The one in the north does not have access indicated, while the one on the south has access indicated on its northern edge. There are no roads facing the development other than the A421 to the East. As such, the development would need to include new roads to connect to the existing network. The A421 is a dual carriageway with no pedestrian or cycle provision. The closest bus stop is approximately 100m from the development as the crow flies, connecting to Bedford and Cambridge at 2-3 buses per hour frequency, however, accessing it would require crossing facilities across the A421. The second closest is about 600m away as the crow flies, but only running twice per day. There is a segregated cycle path on the other side of the A421, approximately 100-150m from the development. Connection currently would be circuitous via Roxton Road. The proposal for 200 dwellings will have a significant impact on highway network.The development only proposes residential use. New roads would need to be built to connect the site to the road network. A TA is needed to assess the impact on the road network. Connection across the A421 to Bedford Road would potentially be useful.

Access to the site is feasible from Bedford Road which is an adopted and classified type C road of national speed limit which is 60mph for a single carriageway road. The nearest bus stops with bus shelter present are located on Bedford Road opposite the junction with Park Road which is in close proximity to the site (200m). There is a shared footway/cycleway outside the site along Bedford Road of approximately 1.6m in width with grass verges either side of the footway of varying widths between 1m – 1.7m. Reducing the current speed limit on Bedford Road from 60mph to 30mph through the process of a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO). A Transport Assessment (TA) will be required to identify the impact of traffic. Adopted parking standards would need to be adhered to in order to provide appropriate levels of car parking on site. It appears that the visibility splays of 4.5m x 215m cannot be provided. However given the alignment of Bedford Road and assuming the approval of speed reduction to 30mph by BBC, the visibility splays of 4.5m x 90m can be achieved provided that the existing boundary hedges/vegetation are set back behind the visibility splays. A pedestrian crossing island is required on Park Road at the junction with Bedford Road. Cycle mitigation will needed as well.

The closest regular bus service is the 905 stopping approx 600m away with a half-hourly service between Bedford and Cambridge. There is a pavement directly outside the site, however it is very narrow and there are no clear facilities for cyclists. A shared cycle/pedestrian path begins further up Roxton Rd about 200m from the site entrance. Widen the pavement on Roxton Rd outside the site to make it more accessible for all users. Also redesignate it is a shared cycle/pedestrian path so that it links with the existing cycle path 200m further up Roxton Road.

Vehicular access will be off New Road which presents no problems. Some traffic in the area along New Road at peak times which could be worsened by the development and neighbouring proposed sites. The nearest bus stop with a regular service is approximately 800m away on Bedford Road in the centre of the village - this is dependent on pedestrian access being constructed onto Addingtons Road in the SW corner of the site. At this stop the 905 bus provides a half-hourly service between Bedford and Cambridge. Pedestrian access onto New Road would not be feasible or appropriate, however a separate pedestrian access in the SW of the site onto Addingtons Rd would provide a reasonable connection to the rest of the village and local public transport. There is no specific cycle connectivity but access to the off-road cycle track to Bedford Town Centre is nearby, accessible via some quiet roads. Include a specific pedestrian/cycle access point in the SW corner of the site, allowing pedestrian access to the village and public transport. Better signpost the route to the nearby access point of the Sandy-Bedford cycle track.

The site is located at Wood Lane approximately 750m south of the junction with Sandy Road/Bedford Road in the village of Willington approximately 4.5 miles east of Bedford town centre. Wood Lane does not provide suitable access for this scale of development and the proposal will intensify its use as well as impact on the immediate junction with Bedford Road. The nearest bus stops present are located on Bedford Road and Station Rd both of which are located approximately 800m north of the site. There are no footways either side of Wood Lane and no specific provisions for cyclists, although local roads appear quiet. The proposal would require Wood Lane to be rebuilt in accordance with Bedford Borough Council’s (BBC) standards which is likely to be prohibitive. This would require construction of footways on wood lane and provision for cyclists.

Suitable access route via Hansons access road already exists adjacent to the west of the site, though ownership will need to be confirmed and footways will need to be provided along this access route. Traffic on Bedford Road generally ok, however some traffic on Willington Road to the south, though a site this size is unlikely to have much impact. Pedestrian footways on Willington Road to the south of the site which could be reached by new pedestrian crossing. Bus stop with twice hourly 73 bus to Bedford opposite the access road entrance, within 250m of the site. Potential for cycle connectivity to Church End which is a cycle friendly road via quiet access route to the north/east of the site, though ownership and permission for use must be confirmed. Provide pedestrian footways along Hansons access road, a crossing across Bedford Road to the south and access to the 73 bus stops to the east and west of the access road entrance.

+ No capacity issues

The site is located west of Oakley Road in Oakley approximately 4 miles northwest of Bedford town centre. The access point is directly from Oakley Road which is a 30mph road. No significant congestion and the proposal would not cause traffic problems on the network. The nearest bus stop is 150m south of the site. There is a footway of approx 1.5m across from the site. No cycle routes in the vicinity however the road appears quiet. 2m footway in front of the development site to connect to footway to the south and potential marking on-street cycle lanes.

x The proposal has the potential to cause harm to heritage assets. This harm may range from low to high. There may be options to avoid, reduce or mitigate this harm and where sites have not been ruled out altogether for other reasons, further assessment will be undertaken to more fully explore impacts on significance and options for harm reduction and mitigation. This further assessment may ultimately lead to the conclusion that the site should not be allocated.
