The KSS-designed scheme will provide 950 homes and a new school

Arlesey Cross

A 950-home mixed-use scheme in Bedfordshire has been given the go-ahead.

Designed by architect KSS, the masterplan for Arlesey Cross site in Arlesey has been given the nod.

The development, which is being brought forward by commercial property management and investment company Telereal Trillium, will also include health and community facilities, commercial space and a lower school.

An 80-bed extra care home, hotel and a new relief road will also be part of the scheme, which will have shops, cafes, leisure and community uses around the new public square.

The masterplan also features a significant amount of green space including swales and ponds, which also acts as protection from future flooding.

While there is no timeline for the construction of the project, KSS revealed it was set to be delivered in stages, with infrastructure set to be delivered first, with the residential and town centre work to follow.
