Rare Green Belt development site – approximately 4.4 acres – planning permission for 158 unit residential retirement village with a Community Hub.

This substantial development project is well located on the edge of the Bedfordshire village of Slip End which lies between Harpenden and Luton, within the Metropolitan Green Belt. The village includes a good range of amenities including shops, a garage, public house and restaurant.

The site extends to around 4.4 acres of gently sloping farmland, bounded by mature hedging and with frontage onto the Markyate Road. A small agricultural building is included, but this will need to be demolished to allow for the development.

Planning consent has been approved for a 158 unit retirement village, including apartments, retail units and community facilities, all set in private gardens. The consent allows for a selection of Open Market, Retirement Living, Assisted Living and Affordable units.
