The proposed scheme will address climate change through appropriate adaptation and mitigation measures in the design. Where possible the dwellings will utilise low carbon building materials. The dwellings will be energy efficient and will be designed for comfort by balancing passive cooling design strategies which maximise comfort and minimise energy use during the warmer summers, with adequate levels of insulation for the warmer winters. The dwellings will be constructed so they are weather tight, robust enough to withstand extreme weather, and with foundations which are appropriate for their lifetime. The design will also include measures for water efficiency and effective drainage.

? 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.

New homes will be built to the new 2020 Building Regulations likely to be in force by the time new Local Plan is adopted. The new regulations will reduce carbon emissions of homes by potentially up to 31% (compared to homes built to current energy efficiency requirements). To meet the new regulations, new homes will need to feature technology including photovoltaic (solar) panels, heat pumps, triple glazing and standards for walls, floors and roofs that significantly limit any heat loss. Electric vehicle charging points will be provided in accordance with standards.

? Potential capacity problem requiring mitigation

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.

+ No access constraints

+ No capacity issues

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.

The current access is unsuitable/requires improvement

There is currently easy access, however if the land was used for development it would be an opportunity to look into improving the safety of this stretch of road. With multiple dwellings, junctions and The Flacon Inn all turning straight from a national speed limit section of road, this section could benefit from a slightly reduced speed limit.

As stated, a sympathetically developed site with efficient housing based on the PARA 79 model. If the housing is ideally looking at providing downsizing opportunities for pensioners or affordable family homes, these houses should be able to be either self-sufficient or at least very low running costs. We have zero interest in packing the site with houses blocked up against each other. We feel as if a new development for Bletsoe would help to modernise the area, bring new blood to the village as well as supporting those wanting to stay in the village; therefore maintaining as much of the original mixed hedgerows as possible would be key, planting trees to help support the ground and air would be a priority.

? 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.
