A scheme to build 36 new homes off Bedford Road (A603) and Park Road in Moggerhanger has been given the go-ahead.

Solihull-based Terra Strategic has been working with the landowners to secure the planning status for the 1.44-hectare (3.6-acre) development, which lies opposite the historic park and gardens of Moggerhanger Park.

There will be 10 two-bedroom homes, 19 three-bedroom designs, and seven four-bedroom executive homes. 13 of the two and three-bedroom homes will be affordable housing.

James O’Shea, managing director of Terra Strategic, said: “Our Moggerhanger scheme is a great example of how we have worked with the landowner, the parish council, Central Bedfordshire Council and Hayfield to promote the concept of a high-quality residential scheme on land previously designated for agricultural uses.”

The new development will be constructed with a mixture of red brick and render - and work will start later this year.
