The draft local plan proposes significant housing growth at Bourne End and Wooburn on the following sites.

  • Slate Meadow - is a reserve which we have already decided to release for development. We are working with the local liaison group to set out a detailed development brief which potential developers will have to adhere to. (1)
  • Hollands Farm - releasing this large site from the green belt could provide homes and green areas. This might provide the opportunity for a new link road between Cores End Road and Ferry Lane delivering an alternative to some traffic going through Bourne End. (2)
  • Land off Northern Heights - releasing this site from the green belt might provide a limited number of homes but only if a satisfactory access to the site can be secured. (3)
