Land & Planning

Land & Planning Services

The Beard Group have been involved in a vast array of development projects, many of which have seen a contract through from the infancy of a parcel of land without planning through to handing over the keys to the buyer of the completed property.

The portfolio of projects include;

Riverside North, Bedford

We acted as lead residential adviser for Coplan Estates who, in partnership with Bedford Borough Council, developed a regeneration scheme including 46 apartments, 100 bed hotel, 7 screen cinema, 9 restaurants and some lock-up shops on the riverside in Central Bedford.  In all, this was a £50 m project.

Treetops, Wolverton Mill


A development of 100 new houses and an office conversion of the former Post Office training centre in Wolverton Mill was created by a partnership between Bloor Homes and Quadrant Estates.
The deal was brokered by Cooper Beard Land and New Homes.

Fields Road, Wootton, Bedfordshire

A 2.2 acre parcel was promoted through the local plan process for 12 years prior to a consent for 35 houses being granted.  The land was then sold to Bellway Homes.

Woodfield Lane, Renhold, Bedfordshire

Creative thinking – a client lived in a rather run down bungalow on a good plot and wanted to move to a new property.

We negotiated a deal whereby our client received a bespoke new bungalow and a payment in lieu of two plots which were consented in his garden.
