Biggleswade Housing Infrastructure Fund
Biggleswade has been granted £70million of central government funding (Housing Infrastructure Fund) for investment in:
- upgrade power capacity, allowing for ever increasing demands and business growth.
- a new secondary school
- a transport interchange at the train station
- a replacement bridge to the north of Biggleswade where the Green Wheel Bridleway crosses the east coast mainline for people, cyclists and horse riders.
The full funding was granted, and announced by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government on Saturday 17, August 2019.
This significant investment will bring huge benefits to both the existing community and support the planned housing growth of around 3,000 to the east of the town.
New state-of-the-art power infrastructure will more than double the amount of electricity available to the area. Not only will this support the increased housing but also business growth and jobs. It also means Biggleswade can move towards more sustainable energy supplies and residents can easily add high demand power use, like electrical charging points for vehicles, to their homes.
