Houghton Regis Bidwell West

Responding to a strict Design Code and masterplan, our architecture team designed and delivered 264 homes as part of the first parcel in the Bidwell West Development, on the northern edge of Houghton Regis.

An already well-established relationship with Central Bedfordshire Council enabled us to broker and drive a Planning Performance Agreement between Bellway Homes and Central Bedfordshire Council which facilitated regular meetings and consistent involvement from their Senior Planning Officer throughout the project. Tailoring existing house types to meet the design code requirements required careful material and layout considerations as well as extensive negotiation at frequent intervals.
