Our consultation on proposals for Hayfield Park concluded on Friday 9 June 2017. Thanks you to all who provided feedback or attended one of our consultation events.
We will now consider all the feedback we received during the consultation as we shape and refine our proposals before submitting a final application to Central Bedfordshire Council.
We anticipate submitting an outline planning application for Hayfield Park in Summer 2017.
NEW HOMES FOR CENTRAL BEDFORDSHIRE
We are preparing an outline planning application to create a high quality residential development at Hayfield.
Hayfield Park lies north of the established communities of Aspley Guise and Woburn Sands within Central Bedfordshire, around six miles from the centre of Milton Keynes. The site is bordered to the north by the A421 and the west by Cranfield Road. As part of a wider vision for the area, the Bedford – Milton Keynes Waterway would run along its southern edge. The site would deliver around 700 much-needed new homes for Central Bedfordshire.
THE HAYFIELD PARK SITE
Hayfield Park forms part of an area known locally as the Aspley Guise Triangle. This location has long been considered a sustainable location for new homes and our site is identified in principle in the current Local Plan for development. It will connect directly into, and will assist in delivering, the newly dualled A421. It will also reserve a corridor for the route of the Bedfordshire to Milton Keynes waterway. Building in this location, close to leisure uses, shops and jobs in Milton Keynes allows new residents to cycle or take the bus, and also reduces trips by car that would otherwise be made from longer distances away. We are bringing forward an application for Hayfield Park now because the Government is encouraging more house-building, the Local Plan has been delayed and the area has therefore not identified enough land to meet its emerging housing needs.
Our Hayfield Park proposal is for a standalone community meeting its own needs but linked to nearby infrastructure. The Hayfield Consortium is also promoting further land within the Aspley Guise Triangle through the Central Bedfordshire Local Plan. It could link with potential future expansion in the area while retaining clear boundaries to protect the identity of existing villages in the area.
After we have considered all the feedback submitted to this consultation, together with the findings from our own surveys and work, we will submit our outline planning application to Central Bedfordshire Council. We anticipate submitting an outline application in the summer.
Committed TO WORKING TOGETHER WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES
Before we finalise our planning application for the site we are committed to working with the local community. This is vital in developing the best possible scheme to complement the local area. We value your views and will consider all the comments we receive during this consultation to help shape and refine our proposals.
