Success in Central Bedfordshire
Quatro has helped Welbeck Land secure outline planning consent for up to 85 new homes and a Country Park in Lower Stondon, Central Bedfordshire. The application was approved by nine votes to two by the Council’s Development Management Committee on Wednesday 24th May.
Quatro’s brief included pre-application consultation, including orgainsing a Public Exhibition in September 2016, and political engagement. We worked with the Parish Council and ward councillors to understand their priorities for the Country Park, which contributed to over 60% of the site being delivered as public open space, and to agree specific mitigation measures as part of the s106 agreement.
Members of the committee praised the scheme as a high quality development which would deliver numerous local benefits and contribute to the Council’s housing land supply.
