• Development opportunity for a variet of uses, subject to planning permission

The site comprises a rectangular shaped site extending to 0.87 acres (0.35 ha). Road or pedestrian accesses could be created from both Ford End Road to the south and Henley Road to the west and north. Previously constructed on site was an office block which has since been demolished leaving a relatively level grass covered site with trees lining the southern boundary which fronts Ford End Road. Network Rail retain a covenant over the hatched blue area on the attached plan to maintain access to the railway line, therefore development to this land is restricted. The area effected by the covenant measures 0.17 acres.


Bedford Borough Council is the Local Planning Authority. The site is not located within a conservation area.

We consider the site could be suitable for a number of uses including residential, care, retirement, office, car parking and/or retail, subject to planning. Pre-application discussions have taken place with the Local Planning Authority and are available as part of the information pack. We advise that any interested parties make direct enquiries to Beford Borough Council to determine the suitability of their required use.


Mains water, gas, electricity and foul drainage are understood to be available. Interested parties are to satisfy themselves in this regard.


The site is held freehold.
