MK Council has passed the plans for 40 new homes at Bedgebury Place, Kents Hill. Work should start in April with residents arriving in
2015. Discussions with the developers led to a reduction of the number of houses facing onto Tunbridge Grove, and safety improvements to the road, as well as contributions to buses and schools.
Cllr Jenni Ferrans said “This was an example of developer consultation at its best. The developers put on an exhibition and publicised it well, and attended the Parish Council too. They were then very willing to work with us to make the changes that residents wanted. We didn’t get all of them – there is still more tandem parking than we want – but it’s much improved as a result. Well done Bellways!”
Bellways are hoping to start work in August 2014 and complete by November 2015.
