Planning permission has been granted for 950 new homes on the eastern edge of Arlesey.
Telereal Trillium’s Graham Edwards said: “This is a major step forward towards creating a sustainable community in Arlesey, providing new homes alongside educational and medical facilities, as well as employment opportunities.
“With a mix of available housing tenures and types, this scheme will provide access to high quality homes for younger generations, families and older people to suit different stages in life and household incomes.”
Central Beds Council’s executive member for housing delivery Councillor Eugene Ghent said: “Central Bedfordshire is a prime location, and has always been an appealing place to live and work.
“We are planning for growth due to the continuing pressures to find homes for families who already live here, and who want to remain here. Our residents and their children need places to live and work.
“Our strategy is for that housing growth to be delivered in the right place, and with the necessary supporting roads and infrastructure.
“The Central Bedfordshire Promoter Framework is one way that we as a council can ensure that we are able to control and oversee that type of sustainable growth.”
