We will be proposing 25ha of open space, this is significantly more than required by Central Bedfordshire Council for a development of this size and will include a combination of:
- Sports pitches with an associated pavilion;
- Children’s play areas;
- Two village greens;
- Natural areas to the east of the site, providing ecological habitats together with pedestrian access for walks and running routes, also including storm water storage;
- Natural areas to the north of the site incorporating access for cyclists, walkers and joggers, in association with open space, and a landscaped bund that protects the site from traffic noise;
- A landscaped green corridor that will be used for walking and cycling trails, and could accommodate the Bedford – Milton Keynes Waterway in the future.
These will all be accessible to the new and existing local communities.
