Marston Park was originally allocated in the Mid Bedfordshire Local Plan as being appropriate for a sustainable extension to Marston Moretaine comprising a mix of uses. In 2008, O&H Properties were successful in achieving outline planning permission for 480 homes, 3 hectares of employment land for offices, a new local centre, primary school, community building and sports ground. Following planning permission, we commissioned David Lock Associates to produce a Design Code to guide the development and this was approved by Central Bedfordshire Council in 2010. David Wilson Homes and Barratts are now building the homes, the community building and play areas.
Planning permission has been granted for an adjustment of the amount of employment land to provide an additional 50 homes and extension to the playing fields.
