Development Land Fronting Silsoe Road, Maulden

Land earmarked for the development of dozens of new homes in Bedfordshire is being brought to market by leading commercial property consultancy Kirkby Diamond.

The 11.15-acre site at Silsoe Road, Maulden, is expected to generate significant interest from a range of housebuilders, according to Andrew Wright, senior partner and head of land, planning and development.

The allocated site is being offered for sale subject to Outline Planning Permission for 49 new homes. It will include 30% affordable housing. The western part of the site does not form part of the allocation but is included in the sale as amenity land and for on-site surface water attenuation.

Maulden Land

Andrew said: “This is an excellent opportunity for housebuilders to develop a community of 49 dwellings, including 15 affordable homes and five self-build properties, appropriate to local need. 

“Maulden is considered to be a desirable and affluent village, helping the developer to achieve maximum sales values. We are therefore anticipating significant levels of interest from local and national housebuilders.”

Details of the planning application are available to download from the data room and also from the council’s planning portal under planning reference CB/21/05393/OUT. The site will be sold with the benefit of planning.
