Scheme is 100% ‘affordable’

Levitt Bernstein has won planning for 61 affordable homes in Dunstable.

The development, for Catalyst Homes on a brownfield site near the centre of the town, will create a new frontage on Brewers Hill Road and face on to a series of internal streets designed to encourage pedestrians and cyclists.

The 100% affordable scheme will have 43 homes for shared ownership and 18 for affordable rent. The homes will be made up of 38 two-, three- and four-bedroom houses and 23 two-bedroom flats.

The scheme also features several landscaped spaces, with street-facing green frontages and private back gardens.

Contractors are expected to be appointed later this year, with the project due to commence in early 2018 and the first completions to follow in 2019.
