Hayfield Park Development

OUR PROPOSALS

Our vision for Hayfield Park is to create a high quality, sustainable development which reflects the identity and character of the nearby villages in Central Bedfordshire.

The scheme will be well designed and landscaped to respect its surroundings while promoting community integration and creating strong links to the wider area.

  1. The creation of around 700 new homes, creating a new Central Bedfordshire village designed to reflect the characteristics of the local area.
  2. A mix of house types and sizes with an emphasis on family housing - including 35% affordable homes – to meet the local needs.
  3. Creation of new access to the site via a roundabout from the A421.
  4. No access for vehicles from the village onto the existing local road network.
  5. Creation of safe and sustainable connections between existing and proposed local facilities.
  6. Retention of the green buffer between the development and Aspley Guise.
  7. Children’s play areas, natural open space and formal sports pitches.
  8. Adequate parking throughout the development in line with local authority parking standards.
  9. New and enhanced connections to existing and proposed Cycle Network.
  10. Improvements to public transport network and services.
  11. Land suitable for a two-form entry lower/primary school.
  12. A local centre near to the primary school and village green, providing local shops, community and healthcare facilities.
  13. Retention of important trees and hedgerows, with substantial new tree and hedgerow planting.
  14. Landscaping will contribute to the local environment, reduce noise effects from the A421 and M1 and enable British Standards noise level requirements to be achieved.
  15. Sustainable drainage features contributing to habitat diversity.
