Building a better future

Outline planning permission for HRN1 was granted by Central Bedfordshire Council in 2014, with the details of access, appearance, landscaping, layout, and scale reserved for determination at a later date.

During 2017 the HRDC has been working up a comprehensive delivery strategy for HRN1. For us the next stage is to develop a site wide masterplan, a site wide design code and area masterplans for the site.

Prior to the submission of the outline application the HRDC undertook extensive engagement with the local community. The HRDC genuinely believes that high quality development requires the creation of places that have been shaped by local people. We understand that the local community should have a crucial role in influencing the development of the areas in which they live and work, and the situation is no different in Houghton Regis.
