The existing access point on Rushden Road is suitable and a new access on Podington Road could also be achieved. Moderate AM and PM traffic congestion occurs on Rushden Road, Podington Road and High St. This should not be significantly exacerbated by 5 additional dwellings. The width and state of the footway varies along the perimeter of the site. Generally good enough for pedestrian connectivity and possibly prams. Some improvements could be implemented.

The site is located north of Cotton End Road in the village of Wilstead approximately 6.0 miles south of Bedford town centre. The access arrangements are indicated to be between properties 77 - 83 Cotton End Road. Some moderate congestion in the vicinity. The access road is directly opposite a bus stop with bus layby and will also affect the bus stop and bus shelter immediately outside the site. Cotton End Road is a single carriageway road with footways of approximately 1.2m in width on either side at this location. Cyclist can use the road surface and other quiet roads in the vicinity, however there are no dedicated facilities. An access road would need to be provided which is in accordance with Bedford Borough Council's highway standards. The preferred position for the new access road needs to be determined in order to comply with required visibility splays. The bus stop/shelter will affected by the access road and it will need to be relocated at a position agreed with Bedford Borough Council as the highway authority. Real-time bus information should be considered in order to maximise the use of the bus service. A Transport Assessment (TA) will be needed to support any planning application for the proposal.

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.

The site comprises a largely redundant parcel of previously developed land within the urban area of Bedford and near to the town centre. Its location provides for convenient and easy access to local services by foot and cycle and will minimise the use of the private car. Car parking has been proposed within the scheme design, together with cycle parking in the form of underground parking thus removing blocks of parking and visually improving the site and its capacity. The site is not within an area at risk of flooding and is identified as lying within Flood Zone 1 (Environment Agency Flood Map). The scheme has been prepared for pre app purposes based around the concept of ‘a mews/townhouse’ typology that supports and enables the key development parameters of affordability, community, density, deliverability, diversity, flexibility, identity, longevity, and place making. Buildings are proposed to be positioned within the site to take account of existing topography, use of natural light source, ventilation, cooling, and solar gain as well as providing natural surveillance to areas of communal spaces. It is also proposed that roof space will comprise green roofs where possible. The development, in line with Policy 51S will seek to explore the use of renewable energy sources and the building fabric will seek to utilise the fabric first approach. The proposal will also minimise the use of water in line with Policy 52.

Access as existing via Newnham Street. There is moderate traffic congestion in the area, however it is understood the development is proposed to be predominantly car free due to its central location so would be unlikekly to have a signifiant, if any impact. There are bus stops 200m away on Castle Rd where the number 4 bus provides a half-hourly service between Bedford Town Centre and Goldington. There is a pavement running along the site frontage however it is very poorly surfaced and has obstacles which may prevent wheelchair users using it (e.g. a fixed bin taking up half the width of the pavement). There are cycle paths available on the riverside 650m away. Improve the surfacing and accessibility of the pavement outside the site. Ensure that street furniture does not block the pavement.

The site is adjacent to 414/537 to the North, and 682 to the East. Access will be provided through Hall End Road, which has no footways either side but verges at this location. The development only contains residential properties and on it's own unlikely to generate much traffic, however likely cumulative impacts with other proposed developments in the area.There is no designated cycle route in the vicinity although Keeley Lane is a quiet and cycle-friendly road. The closest bus stop is approx 275m to the south of the site on Hall End Road, although service is infrequent. A Transport Assessment would be needed to assess the overall impact of the developments in the area as the cumulative impact would be quite large on the local highway network. Improvement of pedestrian and cycle access would be needed - provision of a footpath and designated cycle path. The road is very narrow but these provisions could potentially be located within the development boundaries. Improve frequency of bus routes along Hall End Road. The previous assessment references potential visibility issues towards Bedford Road to the East.

The site is located on the south side of Cross End in the village of Thurleigh, approximately 6.2 miles north of Bedford town centre. Access to the site is feasible along the north boundary adjoining the highway. There is no significant traffic congestion in the area. The closest bus stop is located 300m west of the site on High Street. No footways along the site frontage, however there is one approx 75m to the west, though this is narrow and obstructed by street furniture. Cycling is feasible by using the road surface. A Transport Assessment/Statement may be required depending on the scale of proposals. A 2m footway is required along the frontage of the site to connect with existing footways to the west. Also recommend widening/clearing these footways to improve accessibility. Reduction of speed limit to 30mph on Cross End is required.

The proposal incorporates a significant amount of on-site green infrastructure including the delivery of woodland 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.

Two new access points will be made onto High Road. Due to the size of the development, signalised junctions may be required to prevent congestion on High Road or within the development. For both safety and highway capacity, the A600 High Road will need to be reduced to 30mph around the development. There is an existing bus stop on High Road with a service between Bedford- Hitchin approx every 30 minutes, however, it is currently unmarked and without a shelter. There is a large cycle/pedestrian path along the opposite side of High Road, which could be easily utilised with a toucan crossing installed, allowing direct pedestrian and cycle access to the site. Install signalised junctions for site access, preventing congestion on High Road. Include crossings for pedestrians and cycles to safely access the existing cycle/pedestrian path on High Road from the site. Improve the existing bus stop to include road markings and a bus shelter to make them more visible and attractive to use.

There is an existing access point on Cotton End Road. The traffic peaks on Cotton End Road and Wilstead are moderate, but 100 additional dwellings directly on Cotton End Road are likely to have an impact. There is a bus stop less than 100m to the East of the site, serving route 9 with infrequent daily service. Cotton End Road has narrow 1m wide footpaths on either side. There is not much room for these to be widened. Additional bus capacity/frequency along Cotton End Road could benefit Wilstead and the surrounding area. Similarly, a rural bike trail could be introduced, perhaps paralel to Cotton End Road, to the South of the site.

The site is located east of The Causeway in Carlton approximately 8 miles northwest of Bedford town centre. Access to the site is feasible from the southwest corner of the site onto The Causeway. There is moderate peak time congestion in the vicinity and the development could exacerbate this. There is a bus stop directly outside of the site. There is a narrow footway on the other side of the Causeway and cycling is possible only on quiet roads in the vicinity. Pedestrian footway development along The Causeway in front of the site to enable accessibility to bus stop locations for pedestrians. Improved bus transport service with regular frequency and Real-Time information. Consider marking onstreet cycle lanes.

London Square is committed to sustainable development and would seek to develop the site for residential purposes in line with adopted planning policy. Any future residential proposal on the site would follow the energy hierarchy (be lean, be clean, be green) with the aim of using less energy, using energy more efficiently and using renewable energy solutions wherever possible. The layout of the site would be designed to ensure that the development does not cause any future flood risk to the site or elsewhere (no development would take place on the small element of the site which is Flood Zone 2/3). The suggested density of development would allow large areas of soft landscaping and tree planting to enhance residential amenity and to allow the development to comply with the planting requirements of the Forest of Marston Vale and provide a net increase in biodiversity.

The site is located in the village of Wootton approximately 6 miles south of Bedford town centre. Access to the site is feasible from Wootton Road, but the width is tight, around 9m. Traffic generation from the potential development could cause moderate problems to Wootton Road. The nearest bus stops are on Ridge Road approximately 220m in distance. The footway on Wootton Road is around 1.8m and is shared between pedestrians and cyclists. Given the significant scale of proposals, a road to adoptable standards is required in accordance with Bedford Borough Council's highway standard. A Transport Assessment will be required to identify the impact of traffic and provision of satisfactory facilities for both pedestrians and cyclists.

Duplicate of site 1009. The site is located on the north side of Kennell Hill in the village of Sharnbrook, approximately 7.8 miles north of Bedford town centre. The site will be accessed via a priority junction from Kennell Hill. There is moderate traffic congestion on Kennell Hill outside of the site entrance, and the potential development would have an impact. The closest bus stop is located to the south of the site on Kennell Hill and Templars Way. There is a 1.8m footway in the frontage of the site on Kennell Hill. There are no formal cycle tracks and cycling is possible only by using the road surface. A Transport Assessment will be required to identify the impact of traffic on Kennell Hill as well as the Templars Way/Kennell Hill/Mill Road junction. The location of the proposed access required is to be specified. The proposal will require a road to adoptable standards in accordance with Bedford Borough Council's highway standards in terms of accommodating the carriageway/footway widths and the required radius kerbs. Consider marking on road cycle lanes and improving frequency of bus services.

The settlement in which the site is located is sustainable, providing key services both within the settlement and for surrounding rural communities with public transport links to close by towns. This will limit the need for out of settlement trips in a private vehicle, thus reducing emissions. Tree planting will be used where suitable, with open space used to provide a net biodiversity gain. Dwellings will seek to achieve a reduction in carbon emissions, solar panels will be considered where viable as will the installation of the electric car charging points. Water efficiency will be factored into the proposals.

The proposal will be located in a sustainable location, allowing easy access into Bedford for cyclists and pedestrians, as well as services and facilities at Wixams. Wixams also is scheduled for a railway station, which will link the site to the Midland Railway and associated stops. Land directly north is allocated for employment purposes, and the site will complement that use. The site can ensure that appropriate building practices are used to meet and exceed requirements where possible.

x Serious capacity constraint

The proposed development is to the East of the A6, opposite Wixams. The proposed access taken directly from the A6 would require significant further assessment and likely serious mitigation works. The relevant section of A6 has relatively low traffic congestion conditions. The two roundabouts at the north end and at the south end of Wixams tend to form slight pinch points during AM and PM weekly peaks. There are no bus stops along the A6, but there are several within Wixams. 2000 additional dwellings are likely to put strain the road network and these two roundabouts would need to be modelled and possible mitigation put in place. This should be done as part of a full transport assessment for the site. The size of the development will require a new street network which can be built to required pedestrian and cycling standards. It is noted however, that the current submission does not include details for these. This development would definitely require Wixam's bus network to be extended to the other side of the A6, by extending existing bus lines.

New vehicular access is proposed at two separate points onto Milton Road, both of which seem appropriate. There can be some light traffic in the area, however the site has excellent access to the A6, though this development and other neighbouring ones may contribute to congestion. There are a pair of bus stops directly outside the northern vehicular access where the 51 bus provides a roughly hourly service between Bedford and Rushden. Both proposed access points have a pavement on the opposite side of the road. Near the north of the site on Bedford Rd 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. Include pedestrian crossings at both proposed access points to ensure pedestrian access to the existing pavement on Milton Road.

The development will use carbon efficient building materials in its construction as well as utilising efficient energy and water systems internally alongside solar panels on the roof to create energy which can be used by the dwellings. Externally there will be bicycle provision to encourage sustainable modes of transport and electric car charging points. The scheme will also incorporate landscaping and provide a net gain in biodiversity with bird and bats boxes and native planting.

Access onto the A603 (south of the site) using two access points. No existing traffic congestion in the area, however a development of this scale could potentially change that. There is a bus stop on Bedford Road directly outside the site where the 73 bus gives a service to Bedford approximatly every 30 minutes. There is a pavement directly outside the site and the site also connects to an existing off-road cycle track to Bedford (in the north of the site). Improvements to this track are proposed as part of the development. Due to the large scale of development, rerouting the 73 bus which currently passes along Cambridge Rd/Bedford Rd through the site would be beneficial.

Suitable access is achievable

Site presently has agricultural access to public highway. The site benefits from its own access that could be upgraded and thus deliver an independent development, or it could be delivered in conjunction with the adjoining land owned by Bedford Borough Council (BBC) to the east (Site 306) with a new access to Cranfield Road.

The site is in a sustainable location with access to local sustainable transport methods including local bus services, as well as being within a practical commutable distance of schools and employment opportunities. Due to the significant land ownership, there is the potential to deliver biodiversity improvements and a large new community woodland on land as put forward and adjoining within the same land ownership. The development would also have the potential to deliver low or zero carbon homes in line with emerging national and local planning policy.

There is existing access via a farm track north towards Wootton Upper School which does have space to be widened and include a pavement, however a purpose-built access road east to Cranfield Road would be a better option. There is some moderate traffic in the area and a development of this scale could cause a significant impact. The nearest bus stop using the proposed access is 1.1km away where the 53 bus gives a service three times per hour to Bedford. However, if a separate pedestrian/cycle access was provided in the NE corner of the site, the nearest stop would be 350m with the same services. There is no current pedestrian connectivity however both proposed access points have scope to include sufficient pavements connecting to the local area. There is no cycle connectivity however there would be space for a shared path alongside any access road, and the existing pavement on Cranfield Road could be easily upgraded to a shared path. A Transport Assessment would be required, given the scale of the development proposed and the existing congestion in the vicinity. Include a dedicated pedestrian/cyclist access point in the NE corner of the site connecting to Jenkyn Road to give far quicker connection to local facilities. Include a shared pedestrian/cycle path alongside the site access road and consider re-designating the existing pavement on Cranfield Road as a shared path.

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.

Access would be onto an existing road which connects to Little Staughton Road. Some moderate congestion at peak times in the area however the road appears able to accommodate extra traffic. There is a bus stop 150m from the north of the site, however it only provides 3 daily services to Bedford. There is no pedestrian connectivity at the proposed vehicular access to the site, however there is a pavement on Little Staughton Road in the NW corner of the site, so a dedicated pedestrian access could be provided. There is no specific cycle connectivity in the area however there are several small and quiet roads which could be used safely for cycling. Depending on the scale of the proposed development, a Transport Assessment may be required. Include a pedestrian access link in the NW of the site to the existing pavement on Little Staughton Rd.
