Bromham Road

Location: Bedford Borough
Client: RMR Wingfield
Size/Use: 1,300 homes and associated infrastructure

Acting for the landowner of approximately 50% of the allocated urban extension to the west of Bedford and in partnership with the adjacent land promoter, CODE advised on and progressed a successful application for 1,300 homes, local centre, primary school and associated works.

Delicate negotiation was required to satisfy the landowner's interest in assisting the Borough Council to deliver the Bedford Western Bypass, allowing early delivery of the adjacent land but with a longer delivery timeframe for later phases.

CODE also led the landowner's defence against the service of compulsory purchase orders.

CODE is retained to negotiate a series of amendments to the outline planning permission to permit the phased sale of the site to house builders and an increase in total numbers of homes.

Capability Statement

"CODE Development Partners advised the Biddenham Estate on the promotion of its land adjoining the northern section of the Bedford Western Bypass during the period 2013-2015. This was a complex scheme due to the requirement of the development to assist delivery of a major public road which was part funded by a variety of Government sources. CODE managed the consultant team and negotiated with the Local Planning Authority and other landowning interests. The extensive knowledge and experience of CODE’s partners ensured that the varied objectives of all the stakeholders did not prevent agreement being reached and above all they secured a very satisfactory planning permission for the client."
