We envisage TwinWoods having a full range of facilities and infrastructure to support what will be a significant community in its own right. Our proposals place sustainability and climate change at the forefront of our approach and the development will embrace the different routes to achieving a net zero carbon development.
The design and construction of buildings will embed high energy-efficiency and low utilities demand.
A potential new railway station at the heart of the community gives opportunities for sustainable travel and relieves pressure on Bedford itself. There is a strong opportunity to bake-in sustainability at the outset, not just with walking and cycling routes and provision of high-quality bus routes, but also the co-location of key activities across the new community. This includes the provision of a range of local jobs on the site within easy commuting distance of homes, so not all residents out-commute each day, as well as strong cultural, recreational and shopping facilities, schools, health and leisure facilities and generous open space in walkable, vibrant, sociable neighbourhoods.
