+ No capacity issues

Highway ownership check on potential access required, No footways serving the site, the closest being approx 200m to the east. Bus stops are located within 400m with more within 600m that offer a more frequent service. Site is located on a cycle friendly road and provides access to other off road routes that link west into Bedford and east into Sandy. Any mitigation here for pedestrian access would require significant cost and scale, unsure of highway ownership. Scale of development unlikely warrants cost of mitigations/improvements

? Potential capacity problem requiring mitigation

The site is located on the north side of Park Road in the village of Stevington approximately 5.3 miles northwest of Bedford town centre. Access is feasible direct onto Park Road. Some congestion on Park Road outside the site entrance, and the potential development (which could amount to 80+ homes) would contribute to this. The closest bus stop is located approximately 260m west of the site. No footway along the front of the site, however there is a footway on the other side of Park Road in the southwest corner of the site. Cycling is possible along Park Rd and other relatively quiet roads in the vicinity. Provide a transport assessment to assess the impact on transport networks in the vicinity and consider whether additional mititgation would be required to cater for development of this scale. Provide a footway along the site frontage or a crossing point to the opposite footway. Consider marking on-street cycle lanes.

? Potential capacity problem requiring mitigation

Access will be via a new access point onto Wilstead Rd. There can be moderate traffic through Elstow at times, this development could make it slightly worse but is unlikely to have a major impact. Bus stops 150m from the site provide an hourly service between Bedford and Luton, both directions once an hour. There is a shared pedestrian/cycle path directly outside the site, but it is not paved or adequate width, so is unsuitable for all users. Upgrade the existing pedestrian/cycle path outside the site to a paved path; improve the crossing at the point outside the site entrance where the path switches side of the road.

+ No access constraints

? Potential capacity problem requiring mitigation

The site is located in the village of Willington approximately 4.5 miles east of Bedford town centre. The site fronts onto Barford Road and the position of the access needs to be identified. The scale of the development means the proposal will intensify the use of the site and the impact would also be on the immediate junction with Barford Road/Bedford Road and also at junction of Gostwick Place/Station Road if access off Gostwick Place is feasible. The nearest bus stops are located on Bedford Road approximately 340m from the frontage onto Barford Road. There is a footway of approximate width of 1.8m with verge of varying widths between 3m -5m behind footway outside the site along Barford Road. Barford Road from the west of the junction with Wood Lane is part of the Thatcher’s Way cycle route. The site has a potential for an access off Gostwick Place subject to the site boundary fully abutting the end of the cul-de-sac of Gostwick Place. A Transport Statement will be required to identify the impact of development on the highway with mitigation measures. Given that verges exist outside the site and opposite the site, there is scope to convert the verges to footway and/or widen the existing footway to a minimum of 2.0m in width subject to land being identified as adopted highway.

Promotion of the site and any subsequent planning application will include a Sustainable Construction and Energy Statement. This will adopt best practice as it exists at that time. It is anticipated the report will include an energy hierarchy so that the correct approach to design is taken to promote an energy efficient low carbon solution. Building fabrics will be reviewed to ensure exceedance on regulatory minimums. Low and zero carbon technologies will be considered including decentralised heating, air to water heat pumps. Electric car charge points will be provided. Sustainable drainage systems will be integrated in the scheme, and a net biodiversity positive will be demonstrated. Extensive landscaping will be provided in public and private spaces.

? Potential capacity problem requiring mitigation

The site located north of Northampton Road and Grange Lane in Bromham area approximately 4 miles west of Bedford town centre. Access to the site is feasible from Lower Farm Road. However the scale of development could cause significant problems on Lower Farm Road and at the Lower Farm Road/Oakley Road junction. The closest bus stop is west of the site approximately 450m away in Oakley Road. There are neither footways nor cycleways along the frontage of the site, however Lower Farm Road is quiet and likely suitable for cycling. A Transport Assessment would be needed to assess the impact of the development on the highway network. Signalisation of the Lower Farm Road/Oakley Road junction could be needed. Pedestrian footway development along Lower Farm Road in front of the site and potential via secondary access in the southwest of the site. Consider marking on-street cycle lanes.

Access to the site is feasible via Grange Lane and Northampton Road without issues. No traffic data available in the immediate vicinity, however the scale of the proposal would likely cause some issues on Grange Lane as well as at the junctions of Northampton Road/Grange Lane and Grange Lane/Springfield Drive. The nearest bus stop is outside of the site in Northampton Road and another one 200m east from the site in Springfield Drive. Shared cycle path/footway directly from the southwest of the site. A Transport Asssessment would be needed to assess the impact of the development on the highway network. Potential signalisation of the junctions Northampton Road/Grange Lane and Grange Lane/Springfield Drive to mitigate traffic increase.

The site is located about 0.4 miles north of the centre of Wilstead village and approximately 4.6 miles south of Bedford town centre. The access arrangement is indicated to be on Bedford Road, adjacent to Duck End Lane. The area and the site's speciic section of Bedford Road has litte to no traffic congestion. However a few hunderd metres south of the site lies Cotton End Road, which experiences higher congestion, especially at the junction with Bedford Road. The closest bus stop is just 100m from the proposed access, with hourly services for routes 44 and 81. There is no cycling provision in the area. The proposed access points on Bedford Road would require foliage removalin order for a suitable vehicle access as well as pedestrian infrastructure to cross and tie into the existing footway on the south of Bedford Rd. The Bedford Road footway opposite the site's proposed access could potentially be widened.

Note that although the address has been given as New Road, the location map and attachment clearly show the site being on Addingtons Road, so it is assumed that New Road is a typo. Access will be directly onto Addingtons Road, using the existing access but upgraded and widened. Some moderate traffic in the area which could be worsened by the development and other surrounding proposed sites. There is a bus stop 450m away where the 27 bus provides approx. 4 daily services to Bedford. The main village bus stop is approx 1km away where the 905 bus provides a half hourly service between Bedford and Cambridge. There is a pavement on the opposite side of Addingtons Road, so either a crossing should be provided or a new pavement installed on the same side as the development. No specific cycle connectivity however the road in front of the site is a cycle friendly route and connects to national cycle network nearby providing off-road or quiet-road links to Bedford and St Neots. Either a new pavement will be needed on the side of Addingtons Road that has the site on it, or some kind of pedestrian crossing should be provided so that residents can safely access the existing pavement on the opposite side of Addingtons Road.

Promotion of the site and any subsequent planning application will include a Sustainable Construction and Energy Statement. This will adopt best practice as it exists at that time. It is anticipated the report will include an energy hierarchy so that the correct approach to design is taken to promote an energy efficient low carbon solution. Building fabrics will be reviewed to ensure exceedance on regulatory minimums. Low and zero carbon technologies will be considered including decentralised heating, air to water heat pumps. Electric car charge points will be provided. Sustainable drainage systems will be integrated in the scheme, and a net biodiversity positive will be demonstrated. Extensive landscaping will be provided in public and private spaces.

This housing development site is located on agricultural land North of Westfield Road on the outskirts of the village of Oakley. Access will be provided via Westfield Road, a single carriageway adopted highway of about 4.2-4.5m width with a secondary access on a currently unpaved path to the West. The section of Westfield Road along the site frontage is narrow and the development might cause some highway conflict here, particularly if the number of dwellings does reach 100. Passing places may need to be provided at a minimum in this area. There is no footpath on the other side of the road. There is no cycle path in the vicinity but Westfield Road carries very light traffic. The closest bus stop is 500m away from the site entrance, serving buses 50 and 828 to Rushden and Sharnbrook, about three times per day. A Transport Assessment should be developed to assess the impact of the development on the road network. Provision of vehicle passing places, or widening of the road along the site frontage would likely be required. Cycle connection improvements would be recommended as well as improvement of the pedestrian facilities, such as providing a footpath along the frontage of the site. Highway space is limited so onsite provision is recommended.

This would be a high profile regeneration scheme replacing old, energy-inefficient homes with new apartments and houses which will be built to high environmental standards. The site is within a highly sustainable location, within close walking distance to the key amenities of Bedford town centre, the bus and railway stations. We will seek to ensure that this regeneration scheme will deliver significant energy and water efficiencies and minimise its carbon footprint. We anticipate that the scheme will generate a very high proportion of renewable energy through a variety of means, supplying not only the new development but potentially the local area through wider regeneration or back to the grid. We will appropriately assess flood risk and ensure mitigations are incorporated within the scheme Particular consideration will be given to the quality of the public realm and both hard and soft landscaping.

Primary access from Greyfriars using existing car park junction. This site's location in the town centre means that it is around areas of moderate to heavy traffic. It is however directly opposite the central bus station, with a pedestrian crossing linking the two. There are no cycle lanes directly from the site, but some are close by. An on-road non-segregated cycle lane is directly outside the site. Due to the central location and traffic in the area, car use would need to be restricted. The location of the site opposite the bus station can work in tandem with cycle infrastructure on the nearby roads to make this a largely car-free site.

Likely to require contaminated land assessment and remediation if required.

The site is well related to the urban area of Kempston and the extensive range of services and facilities provided there and within the urban extension development area. This includes a broad range of retail facilities including supermarkets, doctors/dentist surgeries, schooling (primary and secondary) and a range of leisure uses. There is also access to public transport providing services to Bedford and the surrounding towns and villages. Therefore, the site is in a sustainable location and reduces reliance on the private car and is capable of supporting a range of development typologies. Development of this site would have particular regard to the environment and biodiversity within it and through suitable mitigation measures. Additionally, proposals would incorporate landscaping and open spaces, including suitable tree planting and through design, layout and orientation maximise the principles of sustainable design.

The site is located on the east side of Green End Road at the corner with Cemetery Road and is approximately 4.5 miles south-west of Bedford town centre. Access to the site is feasible from Green End Road and Cemetery Road. Traffic generation from the potential residential development for residential units and retail would generate an increase in pedestrian and traffic movements. The nearest bus stops are on Cemetery Road just before the southbound approach to the roundabout junction with Martell Road approximately 1.1km in distance. Although a footway is present on the opposite side of the site, the width is below the minimum of 1.8m and there is no footway immediately outside the site. Cycling is possible only by using the road surface. Given the significant scale of proposals, 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. A Transport Assessment will be required to identify the impact of traffic and provision of satisfactory facilities for both pedestrians and cyclists. Any access off Cemetery Road will likely require a reduction in speed to 30mph, with the extent of reduction to be agreed with the highway authority.

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.

Same as site 726. The proposed site is located between St Lawrence’s Church and Manor Farm off Church End approximately 4.5 miles east from Bedford town centre. The access to the site is through a private drive of approximate width of 5.0m. Traffic generation from this development would have a moderate impact on the local network but intensify the use of the site and access. There are bus stops located on Church Road either side of the junction with Churchill Place. The proposed access is approximately 570m walking distance from the bus stops. Church Road and Church End do not benefit from a footway in either direction however; the road is lightly trafficked and semi-rural in nature and is classified as a cycle friendly route. The proposal would require a suitable access road for adoption. Expanding the width of the existing access to accommodate additional traffic is likely not feasible for the scale of development proposed.

2023. On grant of permission (Development could be phased) If the whole site was to be delivered then a phased approach would be agreed with the Council. The delivery timetable set out to the left provides a broad indication of the type of phasing based on a conservative delivery estimate and assuming two outlets with affordable housing delivery each achieving 50 dpa. In reality a higher level of delivery could be achieved particularly if a third outlet was to be included.

De Merke is committed to achieving an environmentally sustainable form of development. The site offers the potential to achieve high quality sustainable design and construction minimising energy use and applying low carbon technologies to achieve a building design standard that exceeds current Building Regulation requirements and moves towards zero carbon. Opportunities also exist for the include of home working and other flexible space to respond to changes in work patterns that have been accelerated by the recent national lockdown following the COVID-19 pandemic. As a greenfield location the site also offers the potential for biodiversity net gain and other measures to improve the environment to the benefit of the wider community. The detail of any proposals will follow as part of any future planning application proposal.

The main access proposed off of Clapham Road would be suitable for the bulk of the traffic provided an adequate junction is built, most likely a roundabout to assist with traffic flow. The secondary access proposed off of Green Lane could be adequate for a small number of houses, but it should be restricted to a small section of the site and no more to prevent congestion on Green Lane. With a site of this size it is likely that additional congestion will result, this could be partly mitigated by installling a roundabout at the main access point to manage traffic flows. There will also be cumulative impacts from the various other developments proposed in Clapham. There are bus stops available on High Street approx 500m away where the 51 bus provides a half hourly service to Bedford and the 50 provides an additional hourly service to Bedford. At both proposed access points there is an adequate pavement on the opposite side of the road only. The pavement on Clapham Road is a shared cycle/pedestrian path. A Transport Assessment should be produced to assess the significant impact this and nearby large developments will have on local networks. Significant works will be needed at the main access point, most likely the construction of a roundabout at the entrance on Clapham Road to manage traffic flow to/from the site. The Green Lane access should be restricted to a small number of homes in the development to prevent congestion there. Due to the large size of the site, it would be beneficial for one or both of the 50 or 51 buses that pass along Clapham Road to stop at the site. Include pedestrian crossings at both access points to access the existing pavements from the site. On Clapham Rd, the crossing would be best as a Toucan crossing which would allow safe crossing for both pedestrians and cycles to access the existing shared path. Reduce the speed limit on Clapham Road outside the side from 40 to 30mph.

Axis Land Partnerships are fully committed to tackling climate change. A Vision Document is in the process of being prepared, which will accompany our response to the Issues and Options Consultation. This document will provide further detail on how the proposal will tackle climate change. It is intended that the development will respond to the Sustainable Development Goals as adopted by the United Nations in 2015. The proposed development will seek to promote the following:  Walking and cycling as an integral part of the development and improve links from Gibraltar Corner to the John Bunyan trail, which dissects the north- west of the site.  Integration of Sustainable Urban Drainage as an important part of the development site.  Provision for substantial public open space, community hub area to provide a facility for both existing and future residents.  Delivery of Biodiversity Net Gain on the site.  Integration of energy efficiency measures of a high standard into all new dwellings together with electric charging points where required. In addition to the above, as will be set out in the Vision Document, the site benefits from being located in a sustainable location in close proximity to Kempston, Bedford and Wootton. It has the ability to provide very good access to both urban areas and the countryside.

Site includes both Bedford Borough Council Site ID 342, 343. The site locations are around 3 miles south-west of Bedford town centre. Access to the sites is feasible from Home Road. Traffic generation from the potential residential development would generate an increase in traffic movements in Home Road, Green End Road, Ridge Road and on the junction of Home Road/Ridge Road. The closest bust stop is approximately 330m from north the site in Ridge Road. There are no public rights of way or formal cycleways way serving the site. A Transport Assessment (TA) will be required to identify the impact of traffic in Ridge Road as well as at the Home Road/Ridge Road junction. Potential signalisation of the Home Road/Ridge Road give way junction may required. Development of the footway across Home Road in the frontage of the site required as well as creation of a pedestrian access via Ibbett Close. The site is located on the western side of Home Road at Gibraltar which is in between Kempston Church End and Wootton. The site is approximately 3.2 miles west of Bedford town centre. The proposed development will be accessed via Home Road which has a 30mph speed limit. The proposed access is approximately 225m walking distance from the nearest bus stop on Ridge Road. The footway width is 1.2m with 0.5m verge on the access side of the carriageway for a part of the site and for the rest of the site there is no public rights of way. There is no formal cycleways way serving the site. The proposal would need to ensure a footway is constructed linking the proposed access with the existing footway roughly 20m to the south in order to access public transportation facilities.

Scores are a rough estimate with the Site covering a large area that experiences better accessbility towards the south and east. Access is likely from a number of roads including the B560, West End Rd and Box End Road. A more detailed investigation is required here including the potential infrastructure construction and improvements that could occur from such a large development site. Capacity and junction assessments should be conducted based on the proposed development scale and the fact that congestion is evident around settlements bordering the A6 such as Bridge End and junctions including Cemetery Road/A6. A significant masterplanning and impact assessment is required for this site. Currently a number of accesses are achievable but more work is required to understand which are likely to operate in the future and how the proposed pedestrian and cyclist infrastructure would serve its purpose.

This site could start as soon as the Local Plan is adopted and the relevant planning permissions have been achieved however we have assumed a slightly longer timeframe for delivery based on the smaller site also submitted on behalf of this landowner.

This site would accommodate development in a sustainable location, within close proximity to existing services and facilities as well as a major employment area. The site would ensure that housing needs are met in areas outside the more vulnerable areas of Bedfordshire including those at risk of flooding and those in sensitive environmental landscapes and habitats. There is significant scope for a truly landscape approach to the development which would enable access to green infrastructure including landscape enhancements and publicly accessible open space, community gardens and SUDs as advocated by paragraph 150 of the NPPF as mitigation against climate change. A mix of house types and tenures would be provided to ensure variety in housing provision to suit the local need, this would include properties with gardens, flats / maisonettes and bungalows. The site is well located to the existing services and facilities within the local area, reducing the need for vehicle trips. Furthermore, the development could be constructed using sustainable construction methods where appropriate as well as being designed to accommodate sustainable design principles such as housing orientation.

There would be a single point of access onto the A600 High Road. The proposed access point is suitably visible and should present no issues provided the new junction is built large enough to accommodate 400 homes, which may require signalling. There is no traffic in the area but in the interests of safety and highway capacity, the 30mph restriction should be extended further along High Road. There are bus stops within 150m of the site entrance with a service between Bedford-Hitchin approx. every 30 minutes. There is a shared cycle/pedestrian path directly outside the proposed site entrance. The 30mph zone on High Road should be extended to fully serve the site entrance and a suitable distance eithier side of it. Due to the size of the development and the number of vehicles already using High Road, a signal controlled junction may be necessary for the site access.

The proposal incorporates on-site green infrastructure including the delivery of parkland/open space, street planting and SuDS to help to mitigate against flooding, reduce ambient heat and provide space and connections for biodiversity. Homes within the development will achieve at least a 19% reduction in carbon emissions below the Building Regulation requirement and incorporate renewable energy sources. All new residential development will achieve the higher water efficiency standard in the Building Regulations, subject to viability.
