Yellow – A421 based growth, Grey– Dispersed growth, Red – New settlement based growth

The suggestion is that the A421 corridor is used, with a new settlement at Wyboston and some limited growth across each settlement within the Borough ( including urban areas) as a mix

Yellow – A421 based growth, Grey– Dispersed growth, Red – New settlement based growth

I believe that there should be a combination of A421 growth, new settlement and dispersed growth. On the A421 nfrastructure is very much in place, and if further is required has a good base to build on with all the current development. It must also be rememebred that Wootton for instance has taken little growth in the current plan, with the Noth Beds Villages of Bromham, Clapham and Sharnbrook taking instead. If you add Wyboston to the mix there is not only good road links with the A1/A428 upgrades, but the potential for rail travel is much increased with the proposed Wixams train station, the train station already available at Sandy, and the proposed East/West rail link at St Neots. It is accepted that a new development will take some time so that some small dispersed growth may be required to ensure that a five year land supply remains in place so we are not faced with the situation recently. It is key however that large settlements are not built in North Beds- Twinwoods, Thurleigh Airfield and Colworth, the A6 would simply not be able to cope, and without some form of northern by pass villages such as Thurleigh and Ravenden and to an extent Renhold will simply become overwhelmed by vehicles trying to access the A1

Brown – Urban based growth, Yellow – A421 based growth, Pink – Rail growth

To me the yellow and pink options are the most obvious and the most efficient given the opportunity provided by the rail and road works.

Pink – Rail growth, Orange – East-West rail northern station growth

Note that I think Plan Orange is fanciful and unlikely to happen, but I do see the advantages to Bedford, if not to Oxford and Cambridge.

Grey– Dispersed growth

Organic growth provides character in development and does not flood any particular area

Pink – Rail growth

I strongly support the Pink option. This is because it has the least disadvantage, and those it does have are the same as other options. Regardless of where the railway will go, growth along this corridor will ensure people are encouraged to use public transport rather than their car. In terms of other areas missing growth, this surely is a good thing - economy of scale will ensure the most efficient growth, while sparing the wider countryside the possiblity of being destroyed.

Grey– Dispersed growth

I think you need links with councils regionally, nationally and internationally in relation to this. At any one time there are relocating UK citizens moving abroad and those with British Heritage (including those from minority backgrounds) moving back. I think growth should be spread across the region and country to prevent overcrowding in skills and resources restricted environments. I agree with the provision of low cost public transport. It is hugely important to get a database of stable contacts who can act as a counterbalance to mobile populations, otherwise the vulnerable, and the environment really suffer.

Consider that will need to be a combination of elements from all. As a further location has consideration been given to the expansion and development of Cranfield particularly as an area of technological development and excellence. This is only growing on what is already there but could be largely expanded. As a location could have an even better link into the A421 at the Marston Moretaine junction by upgrading and slightly realigning the existing link.

Grey– Dispersed growth

Dispersed growth will assist in maintaining and preferably enhancing the vitality of villages within the Borough. It will address the problems of housing concentration that may have contributed to the relatively large number of cases of Covid 19 in the Borough during the current pandemic. Dispersed growth also addresses changes in transport technology that will take in during the plan period in terms of the significant growth in the number of electric vehicles and the development of autonomous vehicle technology. Other changes to the way people live and work, with a significant increase in home working and on-line working and retail will increase the sustainability of dispersed growth.

There should be a commitment to retain the Golf Course at Great Denham in order to keep the separation of villages.

Brown – Urban based growth

THE ONLY PART OF THE PLAN THAT MAKES ANY SENSE IS “BROWN URBAN BASED GROWTH” ANY THING ELSE IS RIDICULOUS AND OR RELIES ON TRAIN LINES AND STATIONS WHICH THE ROUTE IS UNKNOWN AND MAY OR MAY NOT BE BUILT.
