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.
