HRN1 is lynchpin of Central Bedfordshire Council’s planning and growth policies and once completed HRN1 will bring 5,150 new homes of a range of types and sizes, circa 2,450 new permanent operational jobs and 2,550 temporary construction jobs.

HRN1 will deliver the highest quality development, meeting exceptional design standards including three new state of the art primary schools and contributions to a new secondary school which will help meet the future need for education provision in Houghton Regis, along 78 hectares of green open space and a range of retail, commercial and community provision.

HRN1 has exceptional connections to the UK road, rail and air network, making it the ideal location for the provision of new jobs, business, retail, homes, schools, country parks, community and leisure facilities. Integral to the development of HRN1 are the A5-M1 Link and the Woodside Connection and both roads are now open for public use. The construction of the A5-M1 Link has only been made possible by the £45 million contribution from HRN1 to facilitate its delivery.

We are currently consulting on the Site Wide Masterplan for HRN1, for information on our upcoming exhibition please click here.
