Successful planning permission for local charity
10 February 2017

On behalf of our clients, Beds Garden Carers, we are pleased to announce we have obtained planning permission for a new Education Centre at the former Anglers Rest Public House, Clapham Road, Bedford.

The new centre will enable the Charity to move from their existing premises in Brereton Road to new purpose built facilities on the edge of Bedford. The scheme also includes renovating the ground floor of the former public house to a café and providing much needed emergency respite care facilities to the first floor. A new link extension will connect the two buildings and enable the charity to increase their services and offer many more opportunities for adults and children with learning disabilities, autism and challenging behaviour.

Robinson & Hall prepared all the drawings, 3D visualisations and coordinated all the necessary documentation to submit the planning application. After many negotiations through the planning process we are delighted to have achieved a successful outcome for the Charity.

Sharon Hart, Chief Executive of Bedford Garden Carers said: “We are delighted that planning permission has been granted as it brings us a step closer to the Centre becoming a reality. Creating an environment that is easily accessible for people with a physical disability, perfect for learning and an uplifting place to be is incredibly important and our modern design will allow us to do just that.”

The Charity has started a capital appeal for the project. Please visit if you wish to make a donation and support the much needed local facilities.

Please contact Robinson & Hall if you wish to discuss any building project or require planning advice.
