We have ambitious plans for Biggleswade. Plans to transform and enhance the area.
In August 2019, we secured £70 million of central government funding (Housing Infrastructure Fund) to support our plans.
This investment will help fund four important schemes:
- upgrading power capacity, allowing for ever increasing demand and business growth
- supporting new secondary school places
- creating a transport interchange at the train station
- building a bridge to replace the Green Wheel bridleway which crosses the East Coast Main Line
This significant investment will bring huge benefits to the existing community and support the planned housing growth of around 3,000 homes to the east of the town.
We are working closely with the government’s housing delivery agency Homes England and our partners on these projects.
A new garden community is planned to the east of Biggleswade, backed by the government’s Garden Communities Programme.
